It will still be a few months since I have to test the brass and I am sure issues will arise and manufacturing adjustments made.

Better pic

Of course they will be coated and just like my brass is better and improved internally my coating is better than FNH's.

We are getting into weeks now.

GONRA is really anxious to purchase 1000 rds. of the EA brass when its available.
Is the "internal case volume" a little smaller than FN brass we're all used to?
If it is, will reduce my 2 Standard "True Blue" loads and verkup loading data for the New EA Brass.

In a recent coffee chat vid, I think he stated same capacity as normal 57 brass. I would also start to guess all the developed reload recipes will work... or is the dimensions being slightly different internally be an issue despite being the same capacity?

You need to drop since my brass is much more consistent, has a stronger neck and shoulder. Factory FNH brass easily vary 5% internally. The firm making the dies to be used on the machine cut up FNH brass for base line data. They where amazed at just how poor QC and consistency of the brass was lacking.

Do you have an estimate yet on cost per 1000?

It feels heavier duty than factory brass, and it's shiney. :)
