    Top quality stuff. You won't be disappointed. As hard as lapua, so consistant its funny.
    Oh, and freaking expensive.

    No experience, but in case it's of any value to you, I saw them advertised at Natchez (the catalogue was included with a magazine I bought). I'm in South Africa, so RWS may be widely availalbe there, but I haven't seen it listed at any of the (fairly numverous) US websites that I usually shop at, or browse around on.

    Abinok is right - it was priced up there with Lapua and Norma.

    I've been using it in my 7mmRem mag for a couple of years. Very nice indeed, as far as consistency and concenticity goes . Before them, I used Norma - virtually duplicated the loads for the RWS cases.

    I have been using the RWS in .375HH and the quality is great.
    I was told that they come from the same factory as Norma.
    Everything about the brass is superior.
