I have been searching for almost 2 months and can't find any 300 PRC brass or ammo. Seems odd that people are hoarding it. I have a new build due to be delivered any day and won't be able to shoot it.

Bummer! Hopefully, you have some secured until they are available again.

I scored 2 boxes of loaded ammo Friday in a backwoods basement gunshop in Maine. It's 212 so not what I wanted but I just doubled my brass quantity. I do have a bunch of 375 Ruger to make but I haven't had time. If I was shooting this more it would be done.
With the crush of new shooters I believe I should have built the 30 nosler or 300win. The PRC is a sweet round but the man bun creedmoor crowd needed a big gun and this is their huckleberry. Once the gi brass comes out things should begin to loosen up supply wise

This is really good to know. I am good on 300 prc brass right now but if I needed some TODAY, it looks like I’d be ordering Sherman brass. Thanks for the tip.
Do you know if all this would take is a run through the sizing die and you’d be good to go? I imagine that’s all it would take.
It's prc brass with a sherman headstamp. The 300 needs to be fireformed to be 300sm and the 28 needs to be necked down then fireformed

I actually had some on backorder with Midway for 6 weeks or so, but they decided to cancel it. Thanks Larry.

If you’re really hurting, just form it from 375 Ruger brass. It takes a couple steps, but it’s not difficult to do.

Capt have you necked it down in the past? I’m in the same boat I bought 416 Ruger necked it down to 375 Ruger annealing it and next step to neck down to 300 PRC. That’s the step I’m sketchy on, that’s a big step! Do you use a standard 300 PRC die without the stem or is there a die between? Would love some help before I trash the 375 brass? Also ordered a .308 internal neck reamer. I’ve only necked down 8mm mag to 7 STW which is easy run it through the die and send it!!!
