Anyone know where I can pick up some .250 Berdan Primers. I know they are as scarce as hen's teeth, and Berdan casings are a ROYAL PAIN to reload, but I have a .303 British that I acquired and along with it came 100 casings all deprimed and cleaned up. Problem is they are the old Berdan style, but I'm chomping at the bit to throw some powder and lead in them to go out and "play"! I've got a tip online already about some, but you have to order them from, I think, Australia and you have to buy 5,000! I can't see having that many laying around for a long period of time, and quite frankly, I just don't have that kind of cash to throw around right now. The berdan are actually cheaper than boxer to manufacture, but the tariff fees for shipping from overseas is horrendous! And there are many different sizes of Berdan as compared to the Boxer's two (for rifle). Any help would be greatly apprediated!
If I only coulda' seen into the future!
