    Norma 6.5 Creedmoor brass Capacity?

    Anybody using Norma brass in 6.5CM that can share their fired brass capacity in grains of water?
    Just doing some research before I drop the coin. Prefer LR pockets rather than SR brass.

    And just out of further interest, does anyone have the same information for the Starline LP 6.5 CM brass?

    Thanks, and apologies for the light hijack ;-)

    That is interesting! Any idea on the reasoning (other than to sell brass of course ��)?

    Found it: https://www.lapua.com/new-6-5-creedm...artridge-case/

    It seems to be primarily for military purposes - given the military's adoption of the Creedmoor they must be hoping for some ammo contracts!
    Could be useful for you too @spada

    Did you know you can get Peterson brass in Large Rifle primer as well? And it's cheaper than Norma too.
    spada and 10-Ring like this.

    And outstanding brass it is too. Along with Lapua and Norma that the AMP folk say are top three of the heap.
