    Should I expect a significant difference (velocity or accuracy) when I switch from R-P to Winchester brass for my .264 WinMag?

    In a word----MAYBE.... Depends on the rifle but if you are anywhere a max load then back down a bit --- not to mention that you have issues when you use WW brass (for example) but a different lot number.

    Such case swaps are tweaks, not massive changes.

    It will by my "guess" that the win brass will have slightly more capacity and your loads will actually slow down a tad. If you have both brass on hand trim a fired case of ea and fill them with a fine powdered gun powder to the case mouth and see which one holds more. If they are close in wt they will most likely perform the same.
