    I am getting ready to reload for my new 300 win mag. Anyone have any strong preferences for which brass to use or not use?

    Thanks!

    I probably should have been more specific in my question. I prefer Lapua brass, but can't find any. I have found a supply of Norma, Winchester, and remington. Any strong preferences against any of these?

    I also reload .300 win mag. I use Remington,Winchester. I have not noticed any difference. Some of these have been shot at least eight times and are going strong.

    ww brass in my 300 win here; newer win brass isn't as good as 10 years ago and I may move over to rem. My 30 rum brass and my 7 stw brass has been very good and it's rem.

    All belted lapua brass was made by Norma. So... if you can get some some norma, do it.

    I have heard that before.
    Traditional Norma is pretty soft to high pressure. The "Norma"/Lapua I have is very hard (like Lapua) so I suspect Norma made the brass to Lapua specs....IDK
    I will probably go Norma when I run out.

    Just picked up some Norma and I like it way better then the Winchester brass I was using.
