    I was wondering what brass you guys were using for the 6.5WSM? Caliber and brand?

    Thanks

    My dad owns one. Win 270 WSM brass is what he uses. He necks them down in a Redding 270 WSM FL bushing die.

    The 7mm WSM case is .030-.040" longer than the others, in case you din't know already.

    Cases hold up well. The Norma brass in 300 WSM is soft, as I've heard all over the place lately.

    Winchester and Norma 270WSM.The Winchester brass is tuff but inconsistant,the Norma soft but very uniform.Most 6.5 bullets will not take the speed of the WSM so Norma is working the best so far but have not got it dialed yet.
