300 RUM brass is everywhere...the 338 RUM is impossible to find. I have some back ordered at Cabela's and they just keep moving back there expected receiving date.

Re: Brass Availability, Fustrated!

Well, If they quit making STW brass, There are lots of other cases to make them out of, 8mm Rem mag is first, .300 H&H, .375 H&H, .416 Rem Mag, .458 Lott. The list goes on, and the price goes up. I guess my rant may have been some what petty. The more I think of it the more I just grateful that Remington still makes the Brass.

I usually keep 300 Rounds for each rifle I have, I don't think I'll be able to do this right away for this one though.

Sanjuan...I see your fustration! That's gotta suck.

Just sharing your pain-Cabelas told me about a month ago mine was "on the truck". Not so much-computer glitch. I sent Nosler a negative e-mail (stopped short of mentioning anything about anybodies momma) they replied it's "in house" and "shipping to distributers within 2 weeks". I'm embarrassed to even repeat it, don't know if it helps, or if misery just loves company.
What do you do with a $3000 paper weight?
I considered months ago just having our smith just ream it out to the "Edge", he's got the reamer, and a few of my partners run it, but decided the turn around time was too long. LOL.
My order is about half paid for, I tried to cancel the order, but I paid with gift cards I got for christmas the clerk got an "oh hell how do I do this look" that I interpreted to mean if it went any farther my deposit was toast as well.
Only in America-Everybody have a great Labor Day, I'm working, but taking heart hunting season has arrived. I've got friends bear hunting, and my Foxpro just left for Idaho with my partner, his boy, and wolf tags. It's a small bump life is good today.

Re: Brass Availability, Fustrated!

The Law of "whats up with this" firmly states that when new rifles are available components are not and when components are availabel rifles are not. I have a nice only 7 rounds fired 300 RUM SPS that is very seriously getting traded for a nice used action (probably an older Bat)
