    The neck OD of my loaded 308 with Winchester brass is 0.334, and with Federal brass it is 0.339. I'm using a facory chamber and I don't neck turn. So, my question is, can anyone give me the OD of loaded Lapua brass? My feeling is that thicker brass might fit my factory chamber better as the Federal shoots pretty well. Thanks

    My lapua 308 rounds come out at .338, so I guess the your federal is thicker

    Thanks, I'm going to try some Lapua brass. You obviously don't neck turn; are you using a factory chamber, do you get good results?

    It is a factory gun. No turning, it shoots excellent! Some of my lapua brass is going on the 15th or 16th reloading with no annealing and it is giving me 4" groups at 700 yards. I would definitely suggest trying some.
