RE: Differences in commercial brass?

I've developed some loads using Winchester brass, only to find I can't get that much powder into a Remington case. I'd really prefer Norma but I can't justify the expense.

RE: Marlin Model 60

Mine liked the bulk Remington round noses best I had to get a die from Hanned so I could flatten the nose and get something like CCI Small Game Bullet. The rifle never noticed the difference.
