    I have 49 count new Nosler 2nds 300 RUM brass.
    I don't know why they culled them out as seconds as they look great to me.
    I will sell them for what I paid, $45.00 shipped
    Let me know if you want them.

    After all that has been posted on this site regarding Nosler brass in the RUM category, why would one want them specifically over Remington?

    The remington brass has crappy neck thickness and the Nosler has crappy primer pockets so I don't know which way to go. I have to do so much prep on the remmy to get it where I want it where the NOsler that I have got seems more consistent out of the box.

    Hmmmm, I do no case prep with either brand of case. Performance with both brands has been very close to the same. The performance is very good to outstanding accuracy/consistency wise.

    Loosening a primer pocket so much after a single firing with the Noslers at the same pressures as the Remmies frosts me a bit.

    I have found no case dimensional change whatever other than the increased size of the primer pocket. This frosts me also as there is a simple way, if the head expands proportionately, to bring things back into spec.

    There is a 1K bench shooter that "squeezes" the heads on his 300 Win after every shot and was at 20 shots per case last season.

    I'm going to recheck my measurements, as I got a much improved digital caliper, and see if there is any future in resizing. However, if I remember correctly I used a decent micrometer to make the original measurements.

    The die is simple to make if there were any use for it. Maybe I should consider going to a belted case.:)
