Used Remington for man years....Got many damaged and deformed cases...Switched to Winchester now....Better quality.

Re: remington vs winchester brass

I use both but feel the WW brass is better. Many years ago in a book by Bob Hagel he recommended loads and thought the WW was best brass to use.

Re: remington vs winchester brass

I personally like the Nosler custom brass. Best out there for consistency! Good luck!

Re: remington vs winchester brass

Probably a toss up between the 2.....

If you want good brass and good loads, and don't wanna weight sort etc, look into nosler, norma, or lapua...I have both nosler and lapua brass...great stuff...I've checked nosler till I got bored...very consistent.....lapua was scary consistent....

But for many guys, rem or win brass is fine...

Good for you, you can't go wrong with the Swarovski. Good luck, and yes getting Nosler custom brass is tough off the shelf. I usually have to order mine.

Re: remington vs winchester brass

I prefer Winchester over Remington. It seems to be harder and last longer.
