I see that this cartridge seems to be getting just a bit more "available" in factory offerings of rifles

it has always caught my eye, but I've never dove in yet

Brass--is it just Hornady and Nosler? or is there another good source of brass?
Factory ammo- still seems like not very many offerings and pretty pricey, but that doesn't concern me too much as I reload (though it is nice to have decent priced factory ammo to shoot for brass in the beginning)
Fire-forming--I have limited time, so I don't care to spend my time fire-forming cases, so "full size brass" cases are a must
velocity-- if you have one, what are you velocities from a 24" barrel?

any thing else about this cartridge I should consider?

Hornady and Nosler are it and not very good choices IMO. I have been encouraging people to call or email ADG to make A.I. and Sherman brass at the same time. This would fatten their sales if done together and benefit both groups!

I have. I am really liking my ADG brass.
I know, and I got word my initial order was shipped today!
Seriously though, the reason we got ADG brass was because enough people asked for it and they knew it performed! The same is possible for the long action Sherman family.
