    Hello,
    I have been having a hard time find Norma brass for my 300 and was thinking about switching to Gunwerks. Has anyone ever gave them a try or currently use their brass?

    Thank you.

    If this is for a .300 Norma mag, did you check Peterson? Graf's has it in stock.

    I needed some 300WM brass and bought some after I came across this review. The brass seems to be good quality. I'm a hunter, not a competitive shooter and I don't weigh all my brass etc. After reading some reviews about other brass (primarily new Winchester) and people having to throw away 5-10% due to deformities I can say all 100 were fine.

    A friend of mine uses it in his 6.5 PRC and 300WM and really likes it. But he does not weigh his brass but he does load it hot and has no issues.

    Hornady doesn’t make this brass.
    It is Very similar to ADG Brass.

    I purchased 100 pieces in 338 Lapua and it is the spitting image of what ADG produces, even the weight falls right in line with their brass in the same caliber.

    as you can probably guess my question was a rhetorical one. I would find out who makes it (you know they dont) then buy from there to avoid the surcharge you know they put on their stuff. Adg is good brass for sure.

    Dusty,

    Without reading every post in detail, Atlas/ADG makes the brass for Gunwerks. It is exactly the same and it weighs right in the same range as the factory ADG brass. If you check the ADG website and the prices at Gunwerks you'll find that the prices are exactly the same and the differences are the packaging from Gunwerks (soft zippered case), the minimum quantity being sold (100 vs 50) and the headstamp for Gunwerks. I buy from Gunwerks when I can't get a supply from ADG. Same brass as far as I'm concerned.

    I bought ADG brass in 28 Nosler. So far, good stuff.
