Midway sells it for $147.99 per 100 pieces. It's made by Norma.

It's much cheaper than any other magnum brass I've seen right now @ only $1.50 per new case.

It isn't always available, but then what is these days? I think you can get RWS too, which is really tough brass. All the Euro brass is spendy, but worth it in my opinion.......Rich
p.s. You might think about getting some Norma .270 brass for your Sherman, It's good stuff....

It is 8mm (.323") google wikipedia for 8x68 RWS and there is a diagram with specs. It has been wildcatted a lot and I'm sure you could find info on that. It has 87 gr. capacity. I considered it when I designed my 30/375 S.I. but wanted more capacity and easy to get brass......Rich

It is one I developed a couple years ago based on the beltless 375 Ruger case. The case design is very similar to other Sherman designs (like yours) only it has a .530" diameter head and holds 96 grains of H20. I can reach 3100' with the 215 Bergers and it shoots one hole if I haven't had too much coffee!
