To any and all reloaders. What brand brass do you like the best and why?
I have been using nosler (when you can find it) and am having great results with it
plus several neck sized repeat reloads. Hardly any case prep needed either.

Nosler is excellent brass. Good loads are all about uniformity and they are that. Nosler has taken the case prep on themselves, that's why it costs more. Other brands can be good too, but more work/fun (depending on how you look at case prep) is required. Norma out of the box is about on par with Nosler IMHO.

Lapua...Norma is a distant second. Remington is at or near the bottom. Good brass pays for itself, if you don't lose it. It is much more consistent and lasts longer. My wildcat cartridge that I shoot in my benchrest rifles can be made from different brass, but the remington is toast after the first firing. Lapua give me around 50 firings. That said, dies and proper die setup is critical to good brass life regardless.--Mike

Lapua has my vote, with Norma close behind as mwezell stated. I have had some luck with Win. if loaded correctly.....don't push them to hard.
