Everything I've ever heard about Bell brass... I wouldn't touch the stuff with a ten foot pole, especially if you can get Lapua for 30 bucks more. Lapua is arguably the best stuff available, Bell is arguably the worst.

I bought 20 cases from Bell to try them out... the max deviation in weight was only 1.6 grains. That's much better than my Lapua brass, but the Lapua brass has a drilled flash hole, chamfered neck, and is about 10 grains heavier. BeLL has received mixed reviews, however, they manufacture the Lazzeroni brass that many brenchrest shooters consider to be among the best.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
