    Purchasing cases for 280 7x64 brenneke

    Following on from my previous thread I am searching to purchase brass for the 280 and 7x64 brenneke

    I have been able to find brass from the UK and Europe, all of different manufacturers and price

    So my question is your views on the quality of the different types.

    Also other sources that could be available for purchase
    as this is going to be one of the main deciders on which calibre to go with

    I have had very good results with PPU 1/2 moa or less at 600yrds in the past with 243, and Winchester cases have been good too, I have not used other manufacturers for reloading so need some advice please


    so far per 100

    280
    Remington 62.23 uk
    Nosler 114 uk

    7x64
    RWS 100 uk
    S&B 50 eu


    thanks
    Matt

    Or you could pick up a load of once fired.270 and fire form to .280?

    with fire forming what would be the average expense per round with powder, are rifle powders used or others, I presume a bullet is not required.

    Also if i'm going to this extra work then would I be better going for 280AI

    an interesting article here, I know it's .260 but principal remains the same.....
    260 Ackley Case Forming
    If I was going for a re-barrel I'd probably go AI

    I shot a nice sika stag when fire forming 243 Ackley cases. I just worked up a fire forming load and went stalking with it. Regards JCS

    S&B cases are ok I shoot them in my 30-06 with good results.
    Rem cases are good too.
