Is anyone so desperate for brass that they are looking for used brass and or loaded ammo that needs to be pulled apart for the brass (loads unknown) ???

Who was that masked man,,,

Unfortunately, when you gotta have brass, sometimes you have to roll your own.  I had to do this a few months ago to feed my 25-20WCF, but that was a trivial necking down operation.  Making AMP cases from scratch is more than I'm willing to do these days.  I'm glad I stocked up on brass when Midway had the 500 count boxes in stock.  (and no, I don't have any extra to part with).  Moral of the story is stock up when possible, especially on precious metal. ;-)

I sent an e-mail to Starline Brass on Saturday asking for an approximate date of delivery on 44 AMP brass.  I just got an email from Debbie Beischer saying they should be delivering by the end of January.  She did not say what year though, but I assume next month.  Let's hope anyway.

The Starline website is saying the end of January 2011 and Midway is saying early Feb for my now 15 month backorder. Just in time for my b-day.

As is this is crazy, I was looking to reload some 44 AMP and looked through my brass box and found 30 new Norma cases I purchased back in the day. Just goes to show you that hording sometimes pays off.
Have a Happy New Year, have many trigger pulls and a good time.

Ok, I just want to gloat to all of you that I have 1,750 New Starline cases bought 8 years ago. I'm having 1,000 loaded in .44 with the Hornady 240gr. HP/XTP bullet and 750 in .357 with the Hornady ????? bullet. I am very happy I stocked up when the brass was available. Of course, that was 8 years ago.
Allrighty then, what's a very good grain bullet in .357?

Conny,
 
are you going hunting or shooting?
 
For the 357 AMP, I use the Remington 158gr JSP.  It's easier to get the gun to funciton with the 158, and the one I shot the deer with did fine.  I know some will say you need a HP.
 
I have loaded the 125 and 158gr JSP Remingtons with good success.  And they are inexpensive to boot.

Thanks JW,
I'll look into Remington bullets. Actually, the majority of this ammo will be packed and stored for future use. Some of the ammo will be used for evaluation/testing. Some will be used for blowing up small game and some used for larger game for meat consumtion. I may sell some but that's iffy. Thanks again.
