    Brass casings

    Greetings!

    Is there any particular brass that would be best for reloading for a .243 win? do the different manufacturers brass perform differently, stretch, etc?

    Can you reload from previously used factory ammo brass casings?

    I am hoping to start learning to hand-load for my sako 75 hunter .243 and am just looking for some direction before spending a fortune and embarking upon thousands of brass/bullet/powder/primer variations?

    thanks,

    I have come to the conclusion that reloading for cost saving is a a marginal activity. You absolutely can reload fired factory rounds. These will be particularly good if they have been fired in your rifle.

    Brass from the Euro makers is generally good, though there is no really bad brass out there.

    If there is a Norma or Sako or Lapua factory load your rifle likes. I would buy a 100 rounds and use them up normally. Once they are done, use this brass to reload.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
