Thanks for posting this. Apparently, I am not alone in my dissatisfaction with Federal brass in general and their .308 in particular. Neck tension all over the place and full length resized, once fired brass (from a friends bolt gun) springing back to where I had to force the bolt on my rifle closed on the freshly sized case.

I'm not good enough to even consider Lapua brass or bullets, but I am demanding enough to expect my handloads to chamber. All my Federal has gone into the recycle pile. RP brass at least resizes and is good enough for what I do. Maybe some day I'll get to where the Lapua stuff makes sense. Your cost analysis is spot on.
