Further to my old post (above) and a number of most helpful responses to same (re: Proper head-stamps) I am pleased to say it would appear I have, finally, after an 11 year search managed to source properly head-stamped brass (fingers crossed)

Once it arrives (the properly head-stamped brass) I will "roll a few" test loads . Once done I will have no excuse!! Europe , I have my eye on Croatia (Boar) and of course AFRICA

What I say to DR addicts like me who may have an obsolete calibre - Persevere and get them back in usage. The journey is maybe frustrating but fun and worthwhile.

Fingers and toes crossed.!!

Congratulations! I'm happy you've got a fine running game rifle!

I'd imagine if you needed brass and were willing to buy a reasonable amount, these guys would make it for you:

They do make 8x60S so it wouldn't be that difficult for them to add a rimmed run to the line if there was sufficient demand or order #s.

Where did you find brass tentatively speaking?

(I have sent you a PM answering "Tentatively speaking")
Rimless properly head-stamped brass would be "relatively" easy to source. The rimmed version is a completely different animal . All the usual suspect need not apply - Bertram et al
I have been all over this for years. It is like rocking-horse poop.

Hopefully my source will come good. I will let you know.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
