Default Norma 357 Brass

Can any one tell me about this stuff ?? A friend of mine is trying to sell me some, and I don't want to buy a pig in a poke. Thanks for any input guys.

Norma is good brass, but nothing I would pay a premium for in a handgun caliber.

I can't say for what he is selling, but the Norma brass I got in the 70's has been loaded a whole bunch of times with some heavyloads, and still has not split or cracked. What I have is great, and I wish I had more. It is a bit more "coppery" looking than current brass from most manufacturers.

I've used Norma .357 brass with excellent results. If he's asking any kind of reasonable price, buy it !

I got 20 pieces of Norma .357 brass in a bag of 1X fired brass a few years ago. That brass is probably the best brass I've ever used but like said above, I wouldn't pay the price they ask for it new. If you can get Norma .357 brass for a good price jump on it fast... It is extremely good brass.

It's as good as any, and Norma prices it like it was made of gold. Like others said, if it's near a reasonable price, grab it.
