Anyone use them? Thoughts?

Got a new 308 coming and thinking about using their brass. Looks to be similiar price/quality as lapua but American made.


I have seen that the walls are a bit thicker and can lead to higher pressure if not careful

I'm no expert but I bought 100 6.5 Creedmoors and they are very impressive. I've done no thickness, water capacity tests, etc.


But they sure are purty and round.

You know me, I'll buy anything that's new

Are you using less powder capacity in the Alpha compared to your old loads with the usual brass for the same speed?

I heard good things about Alpha brass. Bad thing is they are sold out of everything other than 308, 260 and 22 creed.
small selection of brass and sold out of popular calibers. If your constantly sold out of your product how do you make money?
hammer

I guess I mean if the demand is so high, shouldn't you up production to keep up with it?

that takes money...managing growth is insanely hard. Is the demand due to people buying in or is it steady state demand? If you spend the money to add capacity and demand drops how do you pay for all that equipment you bought

Maintaining quality with rapid growth is tricky business to begin with.

I get that. just frustrating when you cant buy what they are selling. If your new and trying to make a name you want more of your product to be sold.

Alpha brass being thicker, and volume should be smaller.

Got small rifle primer 260 and they are very nice. Very consistent dimensionally and annealed. I'm a happy camper.
