So I'm having a 7-300 wm being built and I'm looking at who offers good brass for the 300. Looking at price per piece and longest life of the brass as well. Thanks guys

    Lapua doesn't make .300WinMag? Really? That's odd. Lapua is my go to brass for precision rifles when I can use it, it's really a work of art compared to other brands.

    Know Lapua brass sometimes has to be expanded prior to loading or neck tension will be ridiculously high. Talk to Padom about this if you can. If not Lapua, he'll likely know who makes the best win mag brass. Good luck.

    I'm thinking I'll try to pick up some norma as it's about 10 cents more than hornady

    Hornady 300WM lasts about 15 firings if you shoulder bump .002”

    RWS lasts twice as long but costs twice as much and lacks case capacity to run all the popular loads. So you’re gonna have to use the next lower node and the 6.5cm guys will make fun of you.
