When you go 6X6.8, be sure to keep us posted.😊Agreed, S&B is my top choice. I've tried SSA (old and new) Hornady and still like the S&B. Primer pockets last the longest in my hot long range loads, I'm pushing the 110bthp up near 2800 and have some brass with 5 loadings and still holding primers well. The SSA was loosening up for my loads after 3.
I shoulder bump .002-.003" and run about 3thou neck tension with no crimp on straight 6.8. I really like the 6x6.8, might just build an upper one of these days.
either buy once fire S&B brass, or buy loaded s&B ammo (110fmj or 110 pts) as S&B does not sell brass, just loaded ammoOk we're the best place to get s&b brass? Is it called s&b for short for sellier& bellot? Any help is appreciated.
Yes, S&B will last twice as long in the primer pocket compared to Fed, especially with warm to hot loads.In everyone's experience...is S&B that much better in longevity than Federal cases? Or Hornady cases for that matter?
I'm wary of current SSA and not interested in Remingtion (unless I was Hard Up).
I anneal BTW.
You can get 1000 primed s&b on gunbroker.com for $600Well Good news and Bad news.
Thanks for the info...I think I'll go with S&B from now on. Only, I don't have any, and I CAN'T FIND ANY !!!
Question: are these cases primer pockets crimped?
Not all hornady brass is made by s&b...refer to the brass thread above....s&b and the hornady s&b brass is the highest case capacity, yet hornady by hornady is the least case capacity...make sure you know which one you are getting.....the brand new hornady brass sold in lots of 50 by hornady is made by hornady, you'll only find the hornady by s&b in loaded ammoSo therefore if one could find new Hornady brass, you'd be in as good shape as getting S&B ammo/cases correct?
Correct, but this is primed brass so it would be de-milled (pull down brass).... but refer to the "brass headstamp thread" as I noticed that the headstamp on this 1000 brass lot has the stamp near the outer edge so that should give you more info about its manufacture dateThx for the info.
I looked a little but it implies it's just brass, not ammo. It say's it's "New".
I was under the impression that you could only get S&B cases by buying their Ammo.
