    I ahve read several articals about how great the RWS brass is and I got to wondering if its any better that Lapua. I use Lapua for a few differant guns two Of which takes a good bit ofr reworking to get the new cases made from it (ie)280ai and from 30-06 .
    I'm just wondering if it last any longer or is any more consistant to justify is price of about $1.25 per case.

    Well, RWS does make .280 brass. That is making this round more desireable to me. I would rather have the 7RM or 7WM performance, but I have no magnum receivers; however, I have a .270 WCF that is giving me fits. If I can't find a load that performs to my standards, it will need a make-over. Even though the brass is $25 for 20 cases, its premium brass, and they would be much easier for me to form the imp cases with.

    I have no experience with either brass to offer an opinion as to which is better.
