Thread: Finally Got Remington Brass To Perform For Me

    Default Finally Got Remington Brass To Perform For Me

    I bought 200 Remington 7mm-08 brass to experiment with even though the Nosler Custom brass was really giving me more accuracy than Winchester brass and especially the Remington brass. I just could not seem to get the accuracy I was use to getting with the Nosler brass, so I decided to take once fired Rem brass and and not neck size, but full size them and trimming them to the minimum trim length, did the flash holes, trued the primer pockets, turned the necks and then used 210 Fed primers, W760 and Speer's 130gr SBT using an OAL of 2.780" like my Sierra match 130gr bullets.

    This load gives me good velocity, excellent accuracy and the deviation will allow me to make good long shots and I don't have to worry about the 130gr speer opening up at distance and the velocities match my LR Duplex. Yes, I am very please with this load for deer, coyote, bobcat and hog.

    Here is the data showing the efficiency and consistency of this load.

    Very nice group. Have you weighed say 50 cases to see what the distribution is? I completely prep cases before weighing them to know that all the cases externally are exactly the same.

    Yes, I prep them then weigh them and sort them into groups. These last 200 Remington brass were to far off in weight, not as bad as some other times and not as bad as some Winchester brass, but not as good as Nosler Custom.
