    brass quality

    I was looking at getting some factory 338 to get more brass , which is better winchester or nosler not much difference in price.
    They say money cant buy happiness, but it can buy guns and shooting makes me happy.

    I'd get the nosler brass myself of the two options.

    In my limited experience wwith Winchester brass, the brass sold as component brass is...inferior.
    Their brass used in their factory ammo, however, I've found to be very good.
    If it isn't majorly more expensive, I'd definitely go with the Nosler, nice stuff!

    Why not just buy some lapua brass? I've been getting 15-20 reloads out of 308 win lapua brass. Equals to about 5-7 cents per reload.

    Thanks for the input, gonna go with the nosler ammo 300gr @$140/20rds. Just the brass is $110/25 so can't hurt to buy factory loaded then reload after shooting it once.

    I've picked up Lapua brass for $300/100rds. Mind you, that was before the dollar tanked.

    Cabela's is listing No$ler 300 grain "Trophy" .338 Lapua(assuming that's what you're talking about. The Lapua isn't the only .338.) ammo at $154.99 per 20. 250 grain Winchester is currently on back order at $119.99 per 20.
    Possibility exists that Winchester is getting out of the Lapua. Midway, Stateside, shows the 300 grain stuff as "On clearance.' And the Match stuff as "No back order." Just a WHAG though.
    No$ler stuff has always been more expensive than other brands. Never bothered with new brass myself. Only ever bought ammo to get brass. Cost less and was easier back when.
