    Thinking of building a 300 Whisper but want to see if I can find ammo or brass before I do. Had enough trouble finding 7 RUM brass. Don't want to start that again. I know I can find a barrel, just not sure I can find anything to shoot in it. If you've got some you can do without or know where I can find some I'd appreciate it.

    I think the 300 BLK is the same as the whisper and is now loaded as factory ammo from remington.

    300 Blk is more or less the same but it may or may not chamber in the Whisper barrel. Depending on how it was chambered... After all the Whisper is a wildcat...

    It's not a wildcat any more. Hornady is loading it in a subsonis and supersonic load. I'd like to go that way on brass and loaded ammo.

    I have a somewhere between 100 and 200 rounds of 221 Fireball brass and a set of 300/223 (300 Whisper) dies. All you have to do is run the brass through the dies and load up. I should have some formed brass around as well. I used this set up in two different rifles with no problems.
