RIFLES = HARD TO FIND AMMO OR BRASS?

Lets try to get a list of newer model chambered rifles,that are really tough to find ammo for.
We can do this to help new gun buyers from the problem of getting a rifle and not being able to get ammo.

Not so new, but always looking for 222 Rem Mag ammo.

Re: RIFLES = HARD TO FIND AMMO OR BRASS?

The 7mmWSM is a tough one to find, and not easy to form from it's siblings (270 and 300).

If one finds brass or ammo, they'd be wise to pounce on it.

I have one for my daughter and I got 100 Winchester brass (new), so she's set for a little while.

It's a pity it's dying out, because I think it's a great chambering. And scary accurate.

I have a box of 222 Rem Mag ammo. Remington green box. We have a 222 Remington and bought the mags by accident many moons ago.

Anymore you could put just about any cartridge on here. If you have any given round that you load for and you find brass, you better buy it.

While we're on the topic, if anyone has some 7mm-08 brass they let go of, I need some.

7-08 is widely available.

Find me some 257 brass for a reasonable price. I have no choice to but to make it or spend a small fortune.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Nevermind, I just found some. I've had a bear of a time locating it.
