    I see Jamison is making brass for 338 Lapua. Has any one tried it yet? If so how does it work compared to Lapua or Norma?

    If the quality is that of the .408 brass, It doesn't hold a candle to Lapua or Norma...
    I've used Jamison brass for the .408, .338-.408, and the .375-.408 for years. My opinion is that's it's "fair" at best.

    There newer stuff is supposed to be much better. I have old 408 brass that is crap and newer ones that are pretty good but the "newest" stuff I hear is much better. (if that makes any sense)

    I noticed that it was a fair amount cheaper and it got me to thinking.

    I guess you get what you pay for.
