As you may know, the Nosler brass is supposed to be turn key. Just prime it, drop in the powder , seat a bullet and off you go. On the last two batches of .308 and .243, I had to ream out the primer pockets in order to get the primers to seat properly. Using Rem 9 1/2 and Fed 210 primers. Also, I had the unfortunate experience of trying to chamber a round in the .243 which had not been sized by Nosler. I was in the middle of a varmint shoot when I tried to put a round in but the bolt would not close. I ejected it and took a quick look, nothing wrong so I put in another round and everything was fine. Later I camed it in hard with the bolt and fired it, it came out perfectly and would re-chamber just fine. It must not have gotten sized at the factory. Yes, it was fresh brass right from the box. With all the work I have had to do, I'm thinking the premium price is not justified.
