    anyone used both Nosler and Lapua brass in the same rifle , so as to get a good comparison of the amount of powder each will take ?

    been loading my 338 with the Nosler stuff , and seems like I am getting pressure signs with powder charges most folks would consider moderate

    so am beginning to wonder if the Nosler brass is a bit on the soft side ?

    No 338 LM Lapua brass experience but I am very happy with the 338 LM Nosler custom brass. Max charge of Retumbo with no excessive pressure signs. Several reloads of some of the brass with plenty of life expected.
