    i was wondering why wichester brass needs to be trimmed more often than remington brass. my remington brass only needs trimmed once every 3 reloads while the winchester brass needs done every load. is this because the remington brass is harder?

    Re: difrences in brass

    going throught some older posts and saw no replys yet to this one, so I figured I'd better put my .02 in.
    Measure the case wall thickness and I think you'll find that the Win is a hair thinner. Also measure all case dimensions and weights before and after sizing, you may find some differences there that may help in finding a pinpoint answer. There is probably not much difference in the composition of the brass, most brass used for cases is about 70/30 alloy and they have that science down pretty well now.

    Hope this helps.

    Was the OAL on the Winchester shorter to begin with?
