    Starting to reload, and wondering what I should use for brass. I am hoping Nosler or federal brass is good, and then I would buy nosler or fed ammo and use to break the gun in, and then have that brass I can use to reload with.

    Thanks

    most consistent brass by weight and measurements is ADG. Bertram is going to handle more pressure a lot better. Nosler and Norma are softer. no experience with Federal or Hornady.

    Norma makes most of Nosler’s brass.

    Bertram or ADG!!! norma is good nosler is norma with a lot of prep work done is all! same stuff different label and slap a bigger price tag on it! ADG and Bertram will give you best performance Bertram will give longest life if taken care of right.... Ive shot 1000's of rounds from a lot of 300 ultra's and Bertram is king!
