    I guess the title says it all?

    I use Remington. I haven't tried Nosler yet because I found acceptable accuracy using the Remington. With new brass, I run it through the sizer die and chamfer the cases, prime it and load it.

    I have had good luck with the Remington brass and if you are in a pinch you can use
    the 7mm RUM, 300 RUM and the 375 RUM. The only one that is different is the
    338 RUM (It is shorter than the others).

    My experance with the Nosler brass has not been good (It is made by Federal).

    Just my opinion.

    I too use Remington cases. Tried a box of Nosler cases and only lasted one reload, to soft I guess. My first batch of Remingtons are going on their 6th reload, but some of the primer pockets are getting really loose, so it might be time to open a new bag of Remington's. A little more prep work for the Remington's, but I don't mind cause it gives me the satisfaction knowing that I prepped them to the best of my ability.

    I've managed to have very good luck with the Nosler brass that I picked up a while ago. Most of it is on its 7-8th firing with no signs of going down hill yet. I don't know if I got a good batch but I've got no complaints with it at all.

    I had a good supply of Federal cases which were very consistent. I've heard that they recently started to make them again.
