Boss Hoss,

No there is no problem getting brass, there is just no brass to get!!!!

That situation will be hopefully in the past soon.

We will see if Jamison actually will listen to those of us that test the hell out of this brass and will actually be selling it for them.

BD408,

I told my contact at Jamison that if they did not reduce the diameter of their primer pocket down to at least 0.2070" they would just be ******* their investment in the air because no matter how hard the cases were, they would not handle multi reloads.

Unfortunately, they do not really care about multi reloads as their main customer, Chey Tac only wants one firing and trash the case. We will see how important civilian orders are to them.

If they would make the cases to the same specs as the TTI brass, they would be in business. Never used the european cases and really have no reason to use them as they are not easly attainable for my customers and I have no reason to test something that they can not get or will not be able to get in the future so hopefully Jamison listens to us and does what we tell them to. We could have saved them alot of money if they had alot earlier.

Kirby,
Chey-Tac is not happy with the primer problem either as they have many customers that reload. Chey-Tac is coming out with hunting grade rifles next year so the general public will be needing a supply of high quality brass, 408 and 375 with a possible 338 version.

Dont get discouraged guys, there will be plenty of brass soon.

Are you sure they are 0.2050" in diameter? Make sure your calipers are zeroed. If so, that is great, as long as you can get a primer in them. IF there is a good bevel on the primer pocket mouth, they should work.

Shoot some with upper pressure loads and tell us what happens after the first firing as far as primer pocket tightness is concerned when you seat the primers for the second firing.

New 408 brass

Yep checked the calipers it was at-0- I necked it down to 375cal with 2 bushings and then trimed. Seated the primer and all when good it also had a good bevel. Max load will be around 3080 fps with RL-25 130 grs. 375 Lost River Soild. It's going to be late next week " I hope" b/4 I can test them. We are all in the same boat and I'll be more then glad to ship some of this brass to you if someone can test b/4 that.



Thanks for all the help
