    Does anyone know where I can get some Lapua or Norma .300 WM brass? Is there any other company that makes QUALITY brass?

    Like finding hens teeth. I have been running posts on several forums looking too.

    I feel the best thig that is available on a daily basis is WW and it is not even close to Lapua.

    Good Luck.

    Broz,

    Nosler is good brass.

    I have usied it for the RUM cases and they work great. Haven't lost one yet and pushed some very impressive loads in the 338 RUM.

    I'm using Nosler brass for long range work, and I'm very happy with it.
    It's quite a bit heavier than other brands, around 10grs, but it handles high pressures with no problems, although I've had to reduce my loads from other brands.
    It's quite good concentrically, and I don't need to weigh them as it has already been done at the factory.
    I think you'll be impressed if you give it a go.
    Cheers.

    Went to Brunos and purchased some Norma brass, boy it was high! Thanks 7mmSendero.

    I also found some Nosler brass at DNR Sports, so I can try out both brands.

    Any experience with Hornady brass?

    They told me last week that they can no longer export ammunition or components to create ammunition. I tried to get them to wiggle on it and they were staunch in their postion.

    Hello,

    NZ must have changed their laws as I have acutally bought guns from this same company through an importer a few years back..... I bought all the P9Ss and the P7M10s they had..

    I too have tried the Nosler brass an it weighs out good and when you turn the necks they are very even. Not much to remove in the flash hole either. I have shot some groups and most are in the 1/2" to 5/8" range at a hundred with a few in the .382 to .368 as the smallest. These are three shot groups during load work up for a hunting load. 190 Berger VLD.
    I have some WW and when I turned the necks there was quite a difference from one side of the neck to the other. Not very concentric. They shoot ok
    Try the Nosler brass it's good stuff.
