    I have become a fan of the Nosler brass and wish to use it in my as yet unfired 338 edge. In comparison to Remington,Federal and Winchester brass the Nosler is ussually heavier and requires an adjustment(decrease) in powder charge. Has anyone any data or experience they wish to share here?

    I used some nosler brass when I first got my edge a.i. and have since switched to remington brass that I sort and prep. The nosler stuff is consistent but just way to soft, if you try to push it at all the primer pockets will fail in a couple of loadings, seen this with my gun and my buddys edge. By the way my best groups were shot with the hand sorted and prepped remington brass . thanks
