    Ok, so I'm just about at wit's end trying to find 300 Win Mag brass.

    I've looked everywhere online that I know where to look. I can't even find the really expensive Norma or cheap Privi brass... or anything in between.

    My option right now is to buy relatively inexpensive (for today's market) 150gr Hornady ammo and shoot it for the brass. The downside to this option is I'm gonna use up my barrel 'makin' brass' to reload. This just doesn't sound like a 'win-win' situation to me at all.

    Most of you know how I feel about this contrived ammo and components shortage, but that's another topic.

    So searching for alternatives... is there any other caliber brass that I can either trim down or reform to work for 300 WM that will be relaible and accurate? Just a thought.

    I'm not looking for anyone's brass ... you are going to need it so thanks anyway. Just ideas on making or locating good 300 Win Mag brass.

    Thank Fellas...

    375 H&H OR 338 WIN MAG would work, but prob'ly cheaper to just buy good factory ammo and re use brass, 100 or 200 rds is not going to harm bbl.

    If you do not want to put wear on your barrel pull the bullets and dump the powder. I would recommend a collet bullet puller used in your press. You'll get tired of the "hammer" pullers real quick. Then remove the depriming pin from your sizing die to size your brass for uniform necks. Should be ready to load at this point.

    You might try over on the snipers hide. Seems to be some go through there every 4-7 days. Might try posting on the items wanted forum. Good luck. Bruce

    have some once fired brass out in the garage. You can have it! Think there's at least twenty pieces and maybe over thirty. Think most of it is Federal.

    You're going to need a good case stretcher if you use 338 Win Mag brass.

    Just registered with GunBroker. A quick look (it's going on midnight and my eyes are giving up the ghost!) shows there's quite a bit.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I think my definition of "do able" is different than yours.

    Midway is showing Remington brass in stock.
