I run a 300 RSAUM.
Loaded 5 dummy rounds of both Nosler and Norma.
The Norma had lumps on the necks.
Wasn't much of a lump but you could measure it with 0-1 mics.
No size difference on the necks of the Nosler brass.
Ran the Nosler brass.
Have 9 to 10 reloads with no problems on the Nosler.

Love that all the nasty prep work is done on the Nosler stuff too.

Almost a reason for me NOT to buy the Nosler brass. I know it's good stuff, but I enjoy the prep work a bit.

With that said, I do still purchase Nosler brass.

A little birdy once told me that alot of the Nosler brass is made by Norma, FWIW.

I ponyed up a while back and bought some Nosler brass, I love the stuff. I am curious who makes the Nosler stuff. I just bought some Norma brass for my 7X57 to see how it works.

I've heard the same thing. Difference being is that the Nosler brass receive more prepwork than the straight Norma brass.

It takes all kinds but if I never have to trim a piece of brass again I'll be happy as a clam.
Almost got my boys thinking trimming and chamfering is fun.
They're not buying it completely though.

I'm trying to remember if what Nosler doesn't get from Norma was Federal or Hornady. Pretty sure I was told Federal. The bulk of it is Norma though.
