Norma 6.5 cm Brass on Sale

Norma 6.5 CM Prime LP brass is on sale at Midway for $99.99 per box of 250.  Even if the primer pocket expands, that's still a lot of shots for the money.

Brass arrived this morning (amazingly packed).
First sample weights of 52 of the 250 after uniforming pockets, chambering flasholes & necks;
Case weight 155.8 average.  When giving them a plus or minus .5 grain (155.3-156.4) 10 culls 7 over & 3 under. Plus or minus 1 grain would have no outliers.
Lengths average 1.915 with a few over to 1.917 and a few under with 1.911 the low.
Shoulder measurement was .006- .007 below my die & chamber headspace setups (short IMHO but probably in saami spec).
All pockets fully cleaned up, unlike Starline which the uniformed doesn't reach bottom and even my Hornady batch doesn't clean up 100%.  I feel the pockets are a plus.

These old hands get pretty tired preparing new brass.  Bright side is less than 200 to go 😂.

Fireforming will be more fun 😁.

Second 50,  5 light ones, 4 heavy,  same weight & tolerance plus or minus .5.
One light one would not make it if the tolerance was bumped up to +or-  1 grain.

Damn 148 to go!😭
