Default Nosler "Unprepped" Brass

Since the last time I bought brass for my long range build, the price on Lapua brand has increased 1.5X and I'm down to my last box.

However Nosler "unprepped" brass seems to be well situated price wise. Has anyone tried these out? Since I FL size, trim and chamfer new brass anyways thought it might be worth a try.




Quote:
Nosler bulk brass was created for high-volume handloaders that want Nosler quality brass, but don’t need it to be prepped.

Nosler bulk brass is manufactured from the same materials and to the same tolerances as Nosler’s prepped, boxed brass, but rather than being prepped, and weight sorted, Nosler Bulk brass is bagged raw in 250ct. bags to provide you with the best raw materials for creating your perfect load. Brass should be full-length sized and trimmed to length before loading.

No experience with their unprepped brass; their prepped stuff is very consistent from one piece to the next.

Bought 250 pieces of .300wm and every single piece of brass is perfect.

Are you going to shoot this out of a gas gun or bolt gun? I've found once fired LC brass to be good enough when used for through my precision AR15. Preperation is key

I saw this come up on another thread.

https://www.petersoncartridge.com

Supposed to be great quality at a fraction of Lapua prices.

My next buy will be from them.

Both Peterson and Alpha brass are great buys, but don't make the 6.5x55 which is what I shoot the most of.
