    Hi Guys,
    Apart from Norma and RWS, i can get Federal, Winchester and Remington 270 Win cases here in the UK.
    Out of the latter 3 which are the best?
    Thanks.

    Ian.

    Winchester, Federal, Remington

    From my experience, the WW brass is the last to lose pocket integrity. Because it is generally harder, if you over work the brass, I have had case-heads split with three firings by accident.

    Federal is great brass, but I was losing pockets with top loads with just a couple firings.

    I have had excelent results with Winchester brass, some as many as 4-5 loads.

    30+ years experience speaking here. Hope it was good experience.

    Winchester brass hands down.

    Pluses (not in order)

    1( Greater powder capacity. More powder, less pressure, greater velocity.

    2) Probably a little harder

    3) Dang hot loads (130gr bullets 3200 fps 24" bbl IMR-4350 - 20 reloads per case.

    RL-22 is the powder of preference. Norma MRP if you can get it. IMR4350 is a bit fast.
