Re: 7mm Dakota?

I would also be interested in getting in on a 7mm Dakota Brass group buy. I would be interested in 100 pieces or more. Let me know.

Re: 7mm Dakota?

When I first mentioned the idea of a group buy for 7mm Dakota brass it was for the purpose of weight sorting a large lot of brass and grouping them so each participant would end up with brass that was very close in weight. Whoever did the sorting could charge a reasonable amount for their time.

Would that be something you all would be interested in?

That sounds like the best way, glad somebody's thinking. I would be happy to send someone some money to get the ball rolling.

Re: 7mm Dakota?

Right now the list price for 100 rounds or more off 7mm Dakota Brass is $180.00 per 100. That is direct from Dakota. Let me make some calls and see if I can get it any cheaper. I have an FFL, if that makes any difference.

If I were to coordinate this purchase I'd want to charge the following for my services:

Weight sort brass - $25.00 per 100
Ream flash holes - $10.00 per 100
Ream primer pockets - $10.00 per 100
Turn necks to your specified thickness: $25.00 per 100

I would need money up front from all participants. I know this is asking a lot of trust, but if I'm going to do this that's the way I'd want to go.

It would probably take me at least two weeks to do everything after I receive the brass.

One thing about sorting brass: There is always a few cartridges per hundered that fall way out of the average weight of all the other cartridges. We would all have to "eat" these cases equally. I usually use these cases to foul the bore after cleaning the barrel.

Let me know if you all are interested. We aren't makking any comitments yet - I just want to see who is interested, how many cases we are talking about, and if you all think my conditions are fair.

I would still like to get the brass prior to the build.

Craig,
I'll be ordering after the holidays. If you would like to make a Saturday or Sunday out of it with me we could Match prep all the brass.

I'll probably buy 100 or 200 so it will be a day long event...

I'll have 200 6.5x47 to do also....
