Talked to Nosler yesterday and was told about the new brass they are marketing. They are having brass manufactured to their specs, then they are essentially match prepping it the way many serious reloaders would. Includes sorting by weight, chamfering, primer pocket prep and even a final sizing to improve concentricity.

Will be shooting some very shortly, should be interesting to see how it performs. Don't know anyone who really enjoys doing all that stuff to their brass, now it is done for us

This sounds like a great idea Ian.
Did they indicate what calibers these cases will be available?

At the Nosler forum I posted a few questions about the new brass: Will the flash be drilled...No they will be punched and deburred, Will the primer pockets be uniformed...No they will be left alone, Will the case heads be machined...No they will be left alone also.
The only advantage that I can see is that some of the case prep work will be done for you and that they will be weight sorted.
If someone else has any info let me know, but for now I'm going to get Norma brass.
