Looking for Rem or Win brass,preferrably new. Can get privi partisan locally, but reviews arent great. Also would be interested in hearing experience on S&B and Norma brass. 100 count would be all I need. Thanks

I use S&B ammo in the 16 x 8x57JRS O/U combo gun and it is outstanding in every respect. I save the brass but havenít reloaded any yet, as the factory loads are more than hot enough, and extremely accurate.

What Brewster said about the S&B 8x57JRS. Out of my drilling those rounds will string holes at 100 yards off the bench.

I'm generally positively impressed with their ammo. I have heard/seen threads knocking their economical .22 LR, but the folks doing the knocking were serious competitive target shooters, so consider the source and the POV they viewed it from.

Do the Norma and S&B take american LR primers?
Anyone know what S&B mean by" cut through" on their loaded ammo? Looks like I can buy their loaded ammo almost same price per round as just the brass??

I've shot quite a bit of S&B in 270 Win, 7x57 and 6.5x55. It's been good ammunition, takes LR primers and a lot easier to find than some of the others.
The 6.5x55 was my 6.5 way before the Creedmoor was ever heard of.

S&B has some pretty unique bullets, their "SPCE" - soft point cutting edge.
Those bullets have a "step" in their profile, a bit more than halfway from the point to the case. S&B says, in so many words, that the step helps with both expansion and opening a wound channel. They must work because S&B sells a lot of them.
I will say that, when shooting paper, the step acts like a wadcutter, leaving a nice, sharply defined hole in the target.

"The Swede" has gotten lots of ink over the years too. Lots of talk about Scandinavian country's using it for moose. You say you've used quite a bit of the S&B, but are you using it on game?

When I saw the step, I wondered if it acts like a wadcutter. Just odd enough of a design to have me wondering what happens on impact.

Guess I should have gone to the source. Interesting how many other companies bullets they load but dont see for sale.

They load a lot of different varieties of ammo, but do not import a lot of them into the US.

If you go to their home site at sellier-bellot.cz, as opposed to sellier-bellot.us, you'll see they make 16 ga shotgun shells in both plastic and paper hulls and in 70 mm, 67.5 mm and 65 mm lengths.
https://www.sellier-bellot.cz/en/products/shotgun-shells/hunting-shells-paper/detail/17/
They have a whole array of shotgun shells, including 16 ga steel.
https://www.sellier-bellot.cz/en/products/shotgun-shells/list/10/
None of these, as far as I know, are imported into the US.

Their .cz website says they were bought by the Colt CZ group right before Christmas. This is the same group that bought Colt a while back. It is possible, I suppose, that the limited selection of products they import may change, but I'm not holding my breath on that.

I think CZ acquired also Vista Sporting Products, which makes Federal and Remington ammo.
