    I will be reloading for a 260 Remington. I would like to buy some quality brass. I can get Norma,Nosler,Remington and maybe Lapua brass.Of these brands-which will be longer lasting or posses better reloading characteristics. Thanks for opinions.

    I have found some bad pieces in a bag, from time to time
    sent them into to winchester and they send me a bag not a bad trade one or two bad ones for a bag of 50

    I've not had any problems with the Remington Brass in my .260 Most cost effective and I can get sub-minute accuracy. That said, I own Lapua for my 308 and nosler brass for my 300 rum (also have some remmy for the rum). My .260 is my mountain rifle and my remington brass is working ok in it. my 2 cents. rc

    Lapua
    Norma
    Nosler
    Remington


    AGREE WITH THAT ORDER! But I don't think Lapua is making .260 brass. Probably can reform it from 243? Not certain.

    There have been some good articles written on 6mmbr about this(260 REM) as well.
    Might want to check into them.
