    Question for you guys,

    If I wanted to assemble 100 pcs of Winchester Brass in 300 Win Mag, how many total pieces would I need to buy?

    This would be weight sorted and neck thickness sorted.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Depends on your tolerance levels. I know the Winchester brass I'm measuring and turning almost all have varying neck thickness. Almost all have one thin side at about .013 and a thick side at about .015. A person would have to sort through a thousand to find 100 that had less than .001 variance. If you turn them all to .013, you can use almost all. I don't weigh and sort cases by weight, so no comment on that aspect.

    I weighed 50 pcs.
    Most were within .6gr with alot less than .5gr.
    Nearly all within 1 grain.
    Only 2 were 2.0gr different.
    The ave weight was about 278-279gr. It is heavy brass.

    Very light chamfer on it , but I like to put more.
