I recently purchased a 257 Wby and want to load for it. I currently have another 257 that I am planning on getting rid of and want to send the existing brass and loads with it since most of its life is used up. So my question is if you were going to go out and buy new brass would you go with the Norma/Wby or something else? I see that Norma is about $2 each where Nosler is a little cheaper followed by Hornady. Thoughts? Thanks.
Maybe try a box of each and see how they are. My last purchace of Rem and Win brass was disapointing.
I just ordered new Hornady brass for the 257 I just had put together from parts (MK V action, fluted lightweight wthby barrel, pillar bedded fiberglass stock)
I'm using 257 Wby ammo loaded in necked down and fireformed 264 Win mag Win brand brass. They work fine but come out just a lttle short. Loads worked up with Win brass may not be applicable to Norma/Wby branded brass.
Now this experance is only based on Nosler's 223 brass and not on their Weatherby brass so your milage may vary.
