Of course is RWS selling brass in all countries where you find them, and they do in the USA as I know for sure. 6,5 x 68 is usual stuff in Europe, and when you're ordering it in the USA they will deliver! The USA are the most important marked in the world.
Yes, and I called the RUAG distributor in Tampa Florida and they supply the dealers. They said they don't sell brass or components, they only use them them for production of ammo. Also called 3 of the dealers on the link you provided and they said they don't sell or can not order RWS brass. I do know that RWS rifle brass has become very rare here in the US and Midway no longer sells any at all. They do sell hand gun brass. Too bad because it is good stuff. Thanks anyway!

Sorry to hear that! It's not very smart of RUAG/RWS treating the US - marked as they do.

Yeah, I'm sorry too because RWS is good brass and they had a good market here. At least we can get the Norma 8x68S and neck it down... we like to tinker here in the US

Always a positive attitude! Like to hear that, and I hope you are going to make progress converting 8 x 68S to high powered 6,5 x 68. You'll love it!

Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

I really wish they were selling 9.3x64 Brenneke brass here. . . I know, it about the rarest of the rare factory rounds. Which totally sucks because it is one of the best, most balanced cartridges there is for big game.
