Re: what is the hardest brass

Remington is the hardest of those three.

Norma (Nosler) or Lapua wiil be your best bet for good brass.

Remington, like Winchester, does not make the quality of brass they once did.

Re: what is the hardest brass

Why in the world would anyone want "hard" brass. That is what we avoid by annealing several times fired brass. Softer brass gives better neck tension and will produce more reloads. When brass becomes brittle or hard, it will split faster. The OP is barking up the wrong tree.
