    Well, it sure ain't Wby, Hornaday is pretty soft usually too, but I am not sure if Rem is much harder than Hornaday. But my best guess would be the Rem.

    Those are a pretty poor choice of 3 to pick from.

    None of them are very useful if loading extreme.

    I'm with Jeff on the remmy of the 3.

    Same as Wby. Norma makes Wby brass. I even had a batch of 300 wby norma brass once that was so soft I finally chucked it.
