    New .308 Lapua brass

    Post by Devereaux on Thu Sep 18, 2014 12:02 am

    So I'm perusing the e-mail flyer from Sinclair on specials, and there's a section on Lapua brass. I decide to look at this, for grins. I actually HAVE 100 or 200 cases of Lapua brass made in .20 Tactical - only manufacturer that does. I haven't had a chance to actually load and test it, but from my other experience the case will have a smaller total capacity, but will fire quite consistently with good speed, but a smaller charge.

    So I get to .308 cases. And there's this case - .308 Winchester. Listed as .308 Winchester. BUT below it is .308 Win Palma. It, too, is listed as .308 Win. I have no idea what this is. So I look it up. Apparently the Palma shooting team (?who they) has asked for small primer .308 cases! The story is that the small primers give better extreme spread and smaller standard deviations, regardless of the brand of primer. Shooting at long distances this would be desireable.

    Now I have no idea WHY this would be true. But apparently it is. ?So I wonder if the misguided .45 ACP cases with small primers were intended as target loads.

    ?Anyone know anything about this.

    The small primer .45acp brass that I have seen is primarily Blazer--which is not target ammo.
