375 Cheytac and 416 Barrett are VERY hard to find. Thats why I load my own. 338 Lapua is easier to find. But I like the 255 Warner Tool lathe turned bullets to load for mine. So I often have to wait for him to make them

I found some old 348 Win rounds a while back. I have no clue why I have them or where they came from lol.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Thanks again buddy. I looked there but you're a better "looker" than me. I'll get them bought.

I had been looking for Benchmark powder for a year. Rare as hen's teeth.

Couple of buddies tipped me off that Midsouth had some in stock today. It's on the way. The hazmat fee is a killer but at 20 dollars, where can I drive for that to find it.

I was talking hard to find specific ammo, not whining about me being too cheap to buy it, this time. laugh

Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I see a lot of off the wall calibers and brands at Dunham's Sporting Goods if you have one in your area. At least in my area. Just FYI.

All I could locate were a couple closed auctions, so it comes up occasionally, but very rare as I'm sure you know.

Just saw 7mm-08 in 150 grain. I prefer 139 or 140. Not willing to pay $60 either. Think they were Norma.

https://ammoseek.com/ammo/7mm-08-remington - several to choose from there. A lot of 150gr but there are a few others as well.

Small rifle primers are still thin on the ground here. Other than that I can just make everything I want. As i shoot some not so common calibers from the get go, rolling my own is the only viable option. Because good luck finding stuff like 223WSSM, 458 SOCOM, 454 Casull, 30 carbine etc. I have not seen any 357 SIG around here either 10mm a guy cold get now and then and I bought it just to get some brass.

Wisconsin Cartridge has alot of remanufactured ammo in many hard to find calibers.
I've ordered .444 Marlin from them for a buddy and he is extremely happy with it.

I havenít been able find any IMR 4831 to load up my 280 Remington. Hate to spend the time working a new load. Been shooting the same for about 35 years. Killed everything from antelope to moose with it.


20 gauge steel has been a burger to find by the case.

Also have some 20 ga steel that I'll never use
