Anybody tried or currently use Hornady brass for your Weatherby? If so how does it compare to Weatherby/Norma brass?

As in case capacity/volume, quality etc.

Never used it in my Weatherby calibers, but use it in my 22/250 and 25/06. I find it to be of decent quality and get good case life with it. It needs to be preped, but I find neck thickness to be conistent from case to case as well as weight. I wouldn't put it on the same level as laupa or Norma, but generally as good as the rest. Decent price also.

I have also never used it in Weatherby calibers but have in others.It seems to have split necks before any of my other brass after reloading.Personally I stick with the Norma for my Weatherby calibers.

Depends if it's Hornady or Frontier brass.The Frontier brass is darn hear throw away after the 1st use.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I've used Hornady brass for my 270 & 7mm-08 and it's had good case life.
I just haven't seen it mentioned much for Wby calibers.

It caught my eye, Midway has 50pcs for around $55
