bj,
I would form from new 300 H&H brass just like i would do for 7mmSTW, a little more work but well worth it because of the availability of Norma brass. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Does anyone know where I can buy Norma 300 H&H Brass. I looked on Normas site and it was not listed.
Thanks
Baylor
