    My advice even though you didn't ask, get Lapua if you can. I found Norma 260 soft as.

    Yeah I guess it means it can take a bit more pressure. Not that I am an expert on such things. I would be surprised if your load in norma had to be changed much at all to work in lap brass but again no expert. My comment came from load dev using norma and lap and the norma showed signs of pressure well before the lap with same charge etc. And better accuracy from lap too in my rifle.

    Yeh Iíve found the same thing, Lapua is good brass. KG has some for the best price in town.

    When full length sizing 30-30 brass the Norma cases were very noticeably easier to do than Winchester cases, so must be quite a bit softer.
    I use Lapua in the 308 and Norma in the 243 (didn't want the same brand for both to avoid f-ups!), I haven't noticed any major difference but I'm only neck sizing with a collet die.

    It actually varies case by case and norma in other cases is better ime
