I bought some 308 Lapua brass and received a card to join a "club", after joining I sent them an email requesting they manufacture 270 win brass. Here is their response:

Sir,

Thank you for your message and proposal of new product.

...to be honest that .270 Win is on our evaluation list. Perhaps it will be in our selection on some day...

Doesn't sound like you should hold your breath.

I can see them making .300 Win Mag brass, .270 not so much.

Who cares if Lapua makes 270 brass. What did we ever do before Lapua brass? Never used it and have killed lots of stuff with 270. Winchester seems to work fine and a lot cheaper.

I look at Winchester brass with a jaundiced eye these days. To be fair they may have straightened things out in the last year or two, but prior to that I've run into crappy batches in 22-250, 243, 7mm08 and 308.

I've quit WW brass, it's mostly junk lately, with hugely variable primer pockets.

Hornady is pretty much my go-to anymore. I have a good supply of WW 300 WSM brass, Remington 257 Roberts brass, and Lapua 308 brass, but everything else will get Hornady, including my 270's.

The Hornady 308 Win. match brass has been good enough to greatly diminish my use of Lapua for a lot of duty.

Maybe just buy some 30.06 Lapua and neck it down.

One one sight where I found Lapua for the 6.5 CreedMoor, which is what I was going there to purchase, they had Hornady. The Lapua was rated about 3 1/2 stars and the Harnady was rated at 4 1/2 stars. I bought the Hornady.

That's good news to hear about the quality of Hornady brass. I've also been considering Nosler and Norma.

I think the knock on the 6.5 Creed Lapua brass is the fact that it uses a small rifle primer. At least that's the why I've steered clear of it. Thus far Hornady 6.5CM brass hasn't let me down.

When Winchester doesn't produce decent brass for their own calibers stopped buying. The 7 wsm batch I bought was some of the worst I've seen.
