(although they did want $50 for a brick of 22's!!!!!) They also had the STW brass.
The brotherhood has helped me out a bunch, so yeah, that's what we are here for!!!

So now I have 9lbs of h1000, 4lbs of RL33, 1lb of RL25, 5 lbs of RL19, an opened lb of Retumbo, and an open lb of H380. Doing good on powder!
1300 215gm's, 300 WLR's for the 22-250 and probably 200 Rem 9 1/2m's.
100 Brand new Bertram 338 edge brass, and now I have to wait for Grit to finish that!!!
Now please guys, don't post your powder supplies, I don't want to lose a measuring contest!!!!!
WOW, you did trip over a gold mine. Fifty bucks isn't bad for them at this point, I have seen them on GB for $80 bucks plus. I was fortunate enough to pay $38.95 for mine a brick. I paid near $50 for BR2's about a month ago. I was happy to just find them. Your powder stash sounds good. The H1000 really sounds good.
Now I'm looking for Norma brass in 300 HH, which is going to become 7 STW, also need 280, 308, and 300 win Mag. Notice I said Norma!

I've been able to source 7stw brass locally on occasion; I simply buy it when I see it. They don't always have it and were out the last few times I've been in the store.
As to powder, I'm going to have to stock up on rl25 a bit more as the stw has eaten up a bunch with the 250 rounds (with accubonds) I loaded this week and the 200 ballistic tips I'm loading when they get here, but I still have enough powder that I split it up to stay cool with the fire marshal.

The mini goldmine was the primers and the brass, I just recently acquired the rl33 and h1000 from thirdgenerationshootingsupply.com Mini goldmine there, because they had the rl33 and h1000 at the same time, so 1 hazmat fee!
I haven't tried the rl33 yet, as Grit has my edge for some work, and the bolt for my STW in for fluting. From what I hear it should work well in the STW and the 338 family. Looking forward to it.

I've run it with my stw with 171 barnes. The wind was to high to chrono but 82 grains rl33 was about it with the 171 matcburner...I went to 84 and 86 but the pressures were up a good bit.

Does anyone still need brass??? My usual source is dry but I may be able to get some at the more expensive place. It'd be about a buck a casing plus shipping if they still have some (They did today). I'll see what I can do for lots of 50 if there's interest. P.m. me if interested.
I'd rather keep it to lots of 50(brass) or more; but I don't know how much they have at present.
