    I can get 50 count Noslers for $80 from the local Sportmans Warehouse. I haven't seen Remington around my area in WA for a couple years.

    I've been told you can neck up size 7mm ultra to the 300. From what I can tell from sammi drawings it has the same sholder angle and its the same in all other dementions except the size of the bullet diameter but I have not tried this.

    You may have to buy factories and shoot them for brass. I found some 7rum through cabelas over the winter but it was out like a flash. I've bought the town out of 7rum and will probably have to steal brass from my 300rum if I need more.

    Keep looking, but I'm betting most of rem's brass supply at present is dedicated to factory ammo.

    I'm curious about what your actual cartridge is. Do you have a 300 and a 338 RUM or are you shooting a Wildcat?

    There is a guy over on 6brass with the screen name of doubleg.He is out of Texas and builds rifles. I bought a rifle from him a few months back, and in our conversation he told me he had .300 RUM brass that he would sell. I do not recall want brand. I think Remington guilt making it, just kidding , but it sure seems like it.

    A wildcat that I am working on. :) The 7mm RUM won't work for my application, I NEED some 300 RUM brass and don't want to spend an arm and a leg unless it's of bench rest quality.

    If Shawn had some of his .338 Edge Bertram brass, I could make it work, but he is sold out as well.
