3. Last longer, you get about 9 to 10 firings with Norma 270 WSM. You will only get about 3 to 4 firings with Winchester or Remington brass before it turns to junk.
4. Allow your rifle to shoot more accurately.
5. Much better consistancy
I am not saying Remington or Winchester wont work, it will, just not as good as Norma Brass. If you use Remington or Winchester brass, you will have to spend a bunch of time, cleaning necks, uniforming flash holes, uniforming primer pockets, trimming, ect.
Remington and Winchester have been falling down on the QC (Quality Control). I would highly recommend Norma Brass, and I bet you will get much better results. Sure, it's going to cost more up front but it will be cheaper and worth it in the long run.
You can get Norma 270 WSM Brass, at MidwayUSA, for $94.00 for a box of 100. I know it's $40.00 more than the Winchester or Remington brass, but it's worth it.
Can I just add one thing,I don't want to tread on anybodies toes,the 'higher pressure loads' are in fact a fallacy,the reason you can add more powder is because of larger case capacity,not because the brass withstands more pressure!
My tests have shown Norma brass to have from 6grs-10grs more capacity than either Remington or Winchester brass.
That said,it is extremely good brass,and it does last longer!
On a side note,I bought Nosler custom brass in this cartridge,and it was a waste of time/money,it's way too soft,ejector marks with starting loads!
I'm glad I dropped my charges back,and tested from the start loads,I don't know what would've happened if I didn't!
