    Why is it that nobody other then Remington that makes 338 RUM brass? As for factory ammunition I only know of Federal that makes them other then rem. I don't expect any body to be able to know the answer. Just want to know what you guys have heard.

    I kind of felt the same way you feel about my .300 RUM but i found out that nosler makes some good brass for it maybe they make some for the .338 Ultra ?

    just a thought.

    im sure its all about the $$$$$$$$. If they are the only ones that make it you have to buy it from them. Being they designed the cartridge then im guessing they have not released the right for anybody else to make it. Makes business cents i guess:D (sense mispelled on purpose for the play on words effect about money)

    Since Remington is dropping the models that are even chambered for the 338 RUM, I don't see it as a big seller. Why would other companies jump in and retool to make it when they know they can sell the popular chamberings?

    At least he has a choose. The rem brass works fine for me right now, but it would be nice down the road some day. That I could use some nicer brass. I have only been reloading just shy of a year. So they will do me just fine for a long time. Just wanted to see if any body had found or was using something else.
