When you pick up a NBB 12 oz bottle and compare it to other 12 oz bottles it feels like a stunt bottle it is so light.
The 12 oz bottles don't work well with a hand capper or at least that's my experience...I believe the ridge around the neck ir too small for the hand capper to pull the cap down onto the lip.
Sam Adams seems to be the best bottles that are easiest to find.
