currently have Remington and Hornady, I can get Winchester but not sure I want Nickel. I know there are other options, gosh some of it's pricey. What do you all shoot brass wise? thanks

Believe Winchester makes the non-nickel brass also. It works pretty good. Go to the Nosler Shooters Pro Shop site and check about once a week for blemished or over-run brass for the 280 Remington. Good stuff at a good price.

I've been running the Winchester nickel plated brass in my .280 Rem. and so far it hasn't been a problem. The "plating" appears to either be very thin or more like a wash. I have had no trouble with it peeling or flaking and I have annealed the necks and nothing bad happened there. All I can add to that is my loads have been running sub MOA from the start with the 160 gr. Speer Grand Slams. I may even take the rifle elk hunting. :roll: :roll: :roll:

rmarshall,

In 280 Rem, I've mostly shot Remington brass. It has generally been very good, but some Remington batches have given me split necks on its first firing (mostly factory 30-06 ammo). I am personally not a fan of the nickle plated brass; I use some Federal nickle plated ammo and the brass generally gets tossed. I picked up a box of Nosler brass about 3 years ago, it is good and what I'm working through currently.

How much are you after? I might have some once fired Remington brass available.

I've mostly transitioned over to shooting 280 AI, using new Hornady brass that I find on sale. The Remington 280 brass converts okay, but it is bullets, powder and primers to make the conversion. I usually get a box of brass at Christmas time from the family, and it lasts a year + depending on the cartridge.

P.S. South west Utah is beautiful, parents retired to Ivin's effectively a suburb of St. George.
