S&B brass (from 1 time shot match ammo), better than PPU?

Postby Ombre noire » Mon Mar 04, 2019 11:00 am


I have not been around for a while and it looks like it has been quiet on the forum.
I used the search option but it did not gave me the full answer, so my question is: how do you like the S&B brass? It's one time shot from match factory ammo S&B. I guess I will find out by using it but was curious to have your input; I usually shoot PPU or Lapua.

Carpe Diem

I've been shooting the S&B brass in my F-class , Open Div. rifle for a couple of years now . It has held up really good with loads that are slightly above the so-called "Book Max" loads , and I'm on my 5th and 6th reloads now . :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Please be aware ; that I have a F-class style , Mosin chamber , done by David Fair at CCA . And the brass prep on each reload group is typically OCD for shooting L/R . Cases are annealed , F/L sized ,trimmed , de-burred , and a expander used to bring the neck I.D. to .307 ....My comp load for 600 yards is :
S&B Large Rifle primer ( not available anymore )
Brass Trimmed to : 2.110
43.3gr Varget
Berger 185gr Target Hybrid
3.365" BTO (.005 off throat touch)
M.V. off V-3 is 2680 avg.
SD - 6 .....ES - 9
The brass will hold up good as long as you have a good chamber to shoot it in . One that has not been over-sized relating to diameters . Watch for excessive growth of length after F/L re-size , and case stretch near base .
Hope that answers your question ...
If not me.....Who ?
If not now ....When ?
