338 RUM brass availability

Does anyone have info on the lack of 338 RUM brass in the world? I have over 300 pieces on order, but they keep pushing back the ship date.

Re: 338 RUM brass availability

I think there are enough of us asking this question to warrant our own section. I we were all closer together we could start a club meet for coffee, and ask if anybody had new leads.
A lot of us have been "backordered" since January.
My last contact with Nosler got me an e-mail dated 8/30, that states it's in house and shipping within 2 weeks ( hey that's today). I was also told 7/15 etc. Nosler's credibility with me has expired.
Hope it helps knowing a bunch of us are in the same boat.

Yessir, you're correct about that... thank heavens I'm sitting on 400-500 cases I've got rat holed IIRC there was a thread on here where someone was reforming 300RUM brass with good success... might give it a whirl just for kicks... if not, welcome me to the support group! lol

Re: 338 RUM brass availability

As I was buying what seemed like the last 100 in the world, I asked my go too, where are all the 338 RUM brass? He said that they are out of production for a year. Remington said that production will start again sometime in very late 2011 or early 2012. I have 3 RUM's and have been buying all that I can find for the last year, which isn't many.

One of my "secret" brass sources is The website claims 338 RUM brass is in stock.

Just a suggestion! And good luck!
