    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,
    Phil

    Thanks Brick, The Armslist one I have seen before, old listing. The other place I have never heard of and they may actually have some, but prefer not to pay a buck a piece for them. Gonna keep looking. Keep 'em coming guys.

    Where do you live I may be able to send it to you, but do you have import laws. I know with ITAR I cant import stuff with out paying a export permit.

    I spent 15 years 300 miles up the Alaska Highway [AKA the Alcan], living in Fort Nelson. Yes lots of Bear both types.

    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!
