Not positive, but don't think you'll find primed cases available. Primers require hazmat fee when shipped.

Pat's reloading has LC cases, unfired at $65 per 500. Rem is $23 per 100, Fed is $28 per 100

Midway sells Win for $90.99 per 500

Thanks.

Any opinion on Winchester vs LC. I assume both are pretty good?

Both are very good cases. Except for cost I much prefer the Win. However when using it in a semi-auto the LC probly withstands the slam bang better.

Quite a bit of difference in internal capacity between these two. The powder charge is about 1.5~2.0 grs. less in the LC brass depending on Powder used. Recommended is 10% ~ 12% reduction.

Black Hills uses Win cases in their Match loads.

There's a guy in So Illinois that does commercial reloading who will sell it but I'm not sure if he'll ship. You near Illinois?
Just bought 100 new primed from him for $32. He had buckets of new/primed as well.

www.gibrass.com is also a source of unprimed brass, if you go that route.

Nope. 7.62x51 = OOS

It could be he's been sold out for a little while, too - I only remember looking at 5.56 recently. Note to self - check link first...

He does have projectiles, though. ;)
