    284 Win Bertram brass

    At the risk of reinventing the wheel; has anyone had recent experience with 284 win Bertram brass? Iím looking at converting my finnlight 270 to 284 and have sourced some Bertram 284 brass. I believe others have seen discrepancies with other Bertram brass and wanted to hear thoughts on Bertram 284 win and whether I should wait until lapua (or similar) 284 brass is more readily available.

    Purpose is hunting ~150gr loads

    For hunting itl be fine. I use it in my hunting 7 saum and have it dialed id good enough for distances past where i will be shooting deer. For consistency however, i rate it pretty low. I bought ADG when i could find some to use in my 7saum competition barrel. Worlds better and sweet FA more fun tokens at the checkout for 100 bits

    Finnlights in 270 love Nosler 140 ballistic tips and adi 2217 powder

    You won’t need a 284 when the 140 grainers are humming along
    Carbine and superdiver like this.
