[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]I have inserted a few reloadable brass casings for all to check out.
The Lapua on left seems to be the better built as far as web and head strength. The Partisan brass has a very thin primer cup/ flash hole area and the web area of the 2 casings on right could be alot stronger. I add this for those of us pondering wildcatting this cartridge as it is something to think about. Hope it helps!!

Thank you! Outstanding post.  thumb 

Lapua is the best ive ever used (used all the above). For just standard 54r loadin, ive always liked PPU. The primers sit down in them very nicely (flush or below flush). And the Winchesters suck, its all I can do to barely get the primers flush in them. And they have the worst non-concentric necks. 


I have some egyptian brass I should cut open. Just for curiosity.
