    Im looking into getting into reloading for my 300 win mag and i was wondering what is the best brass for the money, i can get winchester and remming from my local cabelas or should i order like nosler or horaday etc.. i hear alob about RWS but thats Really $$$ and even harder to come by.

    so any recomendations would be great

    I've been using nosler brass for my .300 win and the verdict is still out. out of a box of 50 I managed to get 24 where the runout was between 0 and 3 thousands. I dont know if that is good or not. Not really wanting to get into neck turning. I have three more boxes that I will start working on in the near furture.gun)

    I've used exclusively Winchester brass, with only moderately obsessive-compulsive reloading technique, and have absolutely no complaints on performance. Unless you have money to burn or need benchrest-type accuracy I see no reason to go with anything else.

    Never used Remington but I threw away what I did have. Several friends did use it and experienced problems.

    I've been using the Norma brass in this caliber. I switched last year after I got a couple of bad batches of Win. I've been very happy with the Norma.

    I have used Remington brass exclusively, my rifle will shoot in the .6's and .7;s with an occaisional .5 but I was thinking of trying another maybe RWS to see if I can improve a bit. I neck size with a Lee collet die and when neede I bump the shoulder back with a Redding body diel. I was going to try Norma or RWS?
