Should I just pull the bullets and salvage the brass??

Thanks,
Jim
Jim,
I used to shoot them because they shot so darned good out of my built stw, probably the best shooting 150gr. bullet I've shot through it to this point, but when it came to performance on whitetails, it would tear up too quick and would only make one hole even out to 250 yards so I quit hunting with them because of that. Killed a big 7 pt. at 250 yds. and the bullet was lodged under the skin on the opposite side and was completely peeled back to the heel on a double lung shot, but I guess you can't get any deader that dead.

Ed,

I also concur with Fred and Sackett said. I was thrilled to have found that some one could even get brass for us. I had been looking for a while and couldn't find any.

You went above what any one could have expected by finding us the brass and aranging to get it for us and then getting it sent to us in a timely fashion.

thanks again.

I'm proud to be part of this brother hood!

Dan

Ed,
To close the loop on my brass situation, first I found 50 new Rem. cases that I didn't remember that I had; then I found 100 new Winchester cases that I had forgotten.

So---about 300 cases, half new and half once fired.

Thanks guys, I've learned a little more on checking the marketplace just before the order is given, my wholesaler is pretty honest and a great source, I don't think he is overly greed oriented, he's real honest, I'm pretty good at sensing that as I check around first) brass is a commodity and I do know prices vary, also sometimes bigger marketers use it as a loss leader hoping you'll keep shopping on their site. This is probably the answer to the price difference, Midway and Cabela's didn't have any and they have the same connestions as him. My wholesaler told me, the max he could get was 4000 cases before the next run, so supplies out there are low. I bought 50 rem 8mm RP mag brass to keep in reserve for resizing that cost me 63 bucks with non insured shipping. I still feel okay to have them, but I paid up for these. Rem 7mm stw brass is about the best out there for now.

FE,
I have been using Nosler BT & Ballistic Silvertips for years, I agree sometimes they do not shoot thur & thur,,,BUT here is how I look at it,,,the animal absorbs the entire energy that the bullet produces! When a bullet passes thur there is LOST energy still in the bullet!! If it does not pass thur the animal took it ALL!!
