    Has anyone done a side by side shooting comparison
    of Peterson and Lapua brass?
    Just wanting to know if the Peterson shoots as well as the Lapua.

    Not side by side but I do have both. I bought a hundred Peterson to use in a barrel on my AIAT. The initial tests, using my normal BR load data, provided me with excellent accuracy, ES and SD of 2.6 so I shot them in a match. The match had 1/2 MOA scoring rings at 300, 400, 500 and 600 and the load/rifle combo scored very well on a windy day.
    I don't have any idea how many reloads it will take before needing replaced but I have never shot out any Lapua 6BR brass either.

    Not a BR, but on a moderate 6.5 CM load, Iā€™m on my 17th reload of Peterson SRP without a single lost piece due to loose pockets or split necks.
