    What brand? I'm sure you could find a few guys on here to split it up with. I'd be down for a few hundred.

    I've also spent hours searching the net & calling stores within a 300 mile radius of my home here in Colorado with no luck.
    broke down today and bought a bag of 50 Rem off Gunbroker for $ 52.65 plus shipping.
    Thats expensive I know but I needed it.
    Seller says he still has 3 more bags
    sorry I'm not more help.

    How many rds you get out of your brass depends how hard you drive it. I am on my twelth loading on Rem brass, 300 SMK, 105 gr US869, vel 2830, ES single digits. I ordered some from Midway at 42.00/100 and found 3 bags of 100 at my local pawn shop for 32/100. I reckon he had them for a while, anyway that will be enough to wear out a couple of barrels. By the way I love the Edge, it may be the biggest bang for your bucks and it goes WHACK when you hit something with it. Also its no slouch in the accuracy dept. I shot a 4.108 at 1022yds from a harris bi-pod and a sock.

    Hello Augustus, if your getting that kinda use out of your brass i may not even worry about getting any soon. I shoot a 300 SMK, 92 gr h1000 and the brass looks to be holding up well, just would always like to have a few around, also the bullets arent that easy to find either. Also i have a box of 250 gr bullets if someone would like to trade for some 300 gr. I really dont have the time to try and mess with the 250 gr. I also love my Edge, I have shot a 4 shot group at 5.6" at 1140 yrds off harris bi-pod in the back of a pickup truck.

    I don't know if this is a good price, but Cabela's has it for about $72 per 100pc. They had 5 bags at the local store out here in Lacey, WA.
