    I've worked up a couple of loads for a 25-06 w/ winchester brass.
    I have 120pc of once shot remington brass that i prepped today.Do i need to back off my loads when i load these rem. brass ,the loads w/ the winchester brass were not really hot loads.Thanks -Mike

    take 3 pcs of each mfg's brass and determine how much powder each will hold when filled right to the top of the neck.if the new brass is a couple gr smaller then i'd start a couple gr less of powder.if it's about the same i would load the same.safety would tell you to start a couple gr less no matter what!
