    6.5 Creedmoor - Lapua Brass (to share)

    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking at buying a box of 6.5 Creedmoor (small primer) lapua brass.

    Already have 100 of them and need another 50 cases. Would anyone be interested in sharing a box?
    100 cases cost $235.95 @ workshop innovation so you'll pay $118.00 for 50 (I'm happy cover the courier cost)

    Anyone keen or maybe have 50 lapua cases I can buy off them?

    Thanks!!

    The Peterson are also very very good I believe have a bit more capacity also as the lapua are quite thick walled.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and streams, its where life is clear, where the world makes most sense!

    I use both Lapua and Peterson SRP. I'd say that the Peterson is slightly the better of the two and you get a very nice plastic storage box for loaded ammo. Workshop sell the Peterson in 50 lots. Consider giving the Peterson a try, you won't regret it.

    I hope Petersons quality control has improved since I got 100rds last year. Three cases had flaws in the shoulder/neck area (almost a split) and another couple had dented shoulders like too much lube had been used when sized. Emailed them with batch numbers and photos etc but never got a reply. Shame really as it does shoot really well.

    The Peterson 6.5 CM cases I bought from Workshop Innovation were absolutely perfect, couldn't fault them. I have heard of some early batches in the U.S. where Peterson had a few teething problems but thought they would of been long weeded out by now. I know Robert at WI in Matangi will stand behind his products 100%.
