    Dang that is some expensive brass. I hope they’ve engineered it for long life. If you’re spending that much on brass you better be annealing and neck sizing only on these.

      Good, strong primer pockets are a must to justify that price.

      Looking at 308 Win, it’s less expensive than Nosler or Lapua.

    This brass I junk. I bought 100 pieces of 260 brass to test.

    It was way to thick in the neck, measured some thicker the SAAMI chamber spec.

    I turned the necks down to (iirc) .014″ that removed close to .005″ of brass on the worst stuff, and there was still portions of the beck untouched by the neck turner.

    The one case I measured around the case neck showed a high thickness of .0189″ and low of .0164″ that’s a bunch of variation.

    It thick as well, after turning it so it would chamber in my rifle with a loaded round, I loaded up a pressure ladder and the first load had pressure signs. Ended up being 2 grains lighter then my normal loads.

    Would have been kind of cool, except for issues in subsequent fires, after talking with people with more knowledge we figured it was doing a couple things, the brass was bananaing due to the thickness, and the hardness was different causing issues.

    A couple other guys have had similar experiences, and also have primer pocket uniformity issues.
