    Default I NEED .284 Winchester brass!

    OK, guys. I know this is not a popular round, but I plan on taking my dads old Model 70 Douglas barreled .284 to RSA next year. Virgin brass is quite hard to come by now, talked to Win and no go until late next year, no help there. Been to all the sellers and GB and other sites as well, no luck. One guy has some on GB right now but wants nearly a dollar per pc. Normally it would be like most brass, about $70 per hundred. I need at least 50 pcs and 100 would be better of new brass. If anybody has some they could let go of for reasonable or knows someone who has some, let me know please. Thanks!

    Ses,

    Just checked at Midway and they'll let you backorder 6.5-284 Hornady. Says it's expected in November. From there you can run a 7mm mandrel to neck it up from what I've read.

    FWIW,

    Dawson Creek! Wow funny how small this world is spent several days there over the last few years, when driving up the Alcan. Lots of Black Bear in your Area.

    I got some brass! Actually have some loaded ammo coming too. Found 3 boxes of Win ammo on Gunbroker for a price I could live with and a fella on another forum helped me out with 50 pcs of new brass, both on the way. Between the 30 pcs of new I already had I should be good for some time. Probably wont shoot the thing much after the safari is over.
    Thanks to those who looked for me!
