    Im pretty much in the "if Lapua dont make it I dont want it" camp. I like accuracy and pressure. Lapua has been the only one that I was satisfied with. I decided to try some ADG 338 Edge cases. I ran them up to an over pressure, 250 grain hybrids at 3250 fps in 28". The bolt popped right open with only a shadow of an ejector mark if you really studied the case. Definitely no shiny spot. I would say these cases are as hard as Lapua, maybe harder. I weighted the cases and got an extreme spread of 1.6 grains in 50 cases. Thats a little more than .5%. I called Tom Mousel to ask how his last batch of 6br cases weighted and they were about 1%, still excellent. Neck thickness variation was about .001", again on par with Lapua. So, buy some ADG brass so they stick around and hopefully add more options to the line. Pretty sure 28 and 30 Nosler are coming, 280ai would be nice too :)

    I am in the middle of testing some for 300 WM very impressed so far. The 6.5 CM brass was middle of the pack. I would absolutely love to see some more 30 Nosler options as it is quickly becoming my favorite cartridge.

    We need 6.5 SAUM brass badly.

    I am using ADG for 300 Win and 308 and think it is great brass. As noted above, I am waiting on a 28 or 30 Nosler offering. They said it would most likely be early 2019 for it.

    The 30 Nosler is my favorite 30 cal magnum. Id love to see ADG and Lapua make it.

    I am digging their 6.5SS brass. Running some hotter loads with 0 ejector marks. I have a couple good posts on the 6.5SS testing thread.

    I have an edge with a inch tube pushing 300 otm bergers with a mv of 2845 and an es of 9 using 89.5 grs RL26 and WLRM Primers and my 14 yr old daughter has an edge with an 26 inch tube pushing 250 otm bergers at an avg of 2996 with an es of 2 using 93 grs of RL26 and WLRM Primers. Both with the ADG cases.
