Alpha Munitions brass - better than Lapua? Probably May 17, 2018, 10:41:56 PM A story in the new SNIPER magazine featured Alpha Munitions brass, a US company in . Seems this company takes at least as many pains with the brass quality and manufacturing process as Lapua, probably more.So if they make your cartridge and the price is on par with Lapua maybe it's worth a try. I'm looking into it even though I have a $hitload of Hornady 6.5 CM brass, fired and unfired. My Hornady 147 gr. ELD-M bullets may just "deserve" to be put into Alpha brass. Anyone tried it?Eric B.
