No worries OP.......

Like you I've got too many things to do right now.....
I shoot 300WM, but honestly haven't gotten around to reloading it.
I've read (googled) that there can be alot of variation in capacity between the various brands of brass......... but never tested it out.
I was going to "solve" that question by just using the Mil brass, but you've got me thinking about the selection of 300WM brass I have.

Well - I weighed 10 each of HSM and WIN (didn't have enough Fed for sample size).

HSM - avg 266.75 gr, Highest was 268.7, Lowest was 264.6
WIN - avg 243.09 gr, Highest was 245.0, Lowest was 240.6


Surprised at the difference b/t the two.

Thanks!
Now I'm very curious and, if I have time today, will pull out my collection and see what I get............

Whiskey:
That was once fired? So primer in? or processed (trimmed etc) ?
