Never heard of such a thing. Even if they were, after fire forming them and trimming them to length, they would fit your chamber as well or better than any other new brass. I pretty much only use Remington brass for rifle calibers in part because its so easy to get.

There is some truth in dimensions being incorrect on Remington brass for foreign cartridges in particular 6.5x55, but all American cartridge companies are guilty of this since they don't want to spend the money on tooling to make the rims a few thousanths of an inch wider. In such circumstances, more expensive foreign made brass like Lupua make the cases to the correct dimensions, though the difference is pretty much academic.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms... who's bringing the chips?

I've used Remington, PMC and Winchester, all of which are on the cheaper end of the scale as far as quaality goes and I have'nt had any problems yet. The brass will need to be trimmed at least once every three reloads anyway and if your really into it you'll trim every time. I usually get between 10 to 15 reloads before I start seeing split cases, etc. I full length size every third reload.

mauser06-I only use remington brass and have no complaints.I have used winchester and federal in the past and did not notice any difference between them.I know you are a young shooter but just how old is your friend and what experience does he have?

I much prefer remington brass over winchester but either one will work fine . I Know some makes of brass are manufacured more precise but if everyone did this half the people wouldn't be able to afford the ammo . Check the prices for ammo with better bullets and then imagine if you required precision cases too .

Remington brass will make as good ammo as any. Like ALL, you must trim to uniform lengths anyway, and it will give good groups in any hunting rifle. I don't know which brand real benchresters are using these days!

Keep yore powder dry!!
