243 WSSM Nickel Plated Brass

I've been doing a little cleaning in my workshop and have a few hundred pieces of once fired nickel-plated brass. I have saved both 243 WSSM and 25 WSSM nickel-plated brass to reload with but now that I anneal and neck turn my brass I will never use this nickel-plated brass. I know there are a lot of you out there desperately trying to find any brass to reload with. If you could use some drop me an email and we can work out some way to get it to you. I'm thinking $30 for a hundred pieces or $20 for fifty pieces plus some shipping would be fair.

Hopefully Winchester or someone else starts making some brass soon. It's been a joke at how long we have gone without any WSSM brass. I'm sure it's a supply and demand issue and Winchester is making their money off the masses that need the bread and butter ammo and brass but us WSSM lovers don't have any other options. Winchester, will you please make us some brass? Please!

All the 243 WSSM brass is gone. I still have several hundred pieces of 25 WSSM left.

Word on the street is that Winchester Ammunition is telling people that they are going to produce a run of brass for the WSSMs in July of 2015. Let's cross our fingers.

Still no brass from Olin (Winchester Ammo). I'm really starting to think that Olin has no plans of producing any more regardless of the demand. I am hopeful that some other brass manufacture will see the opportunity to own the brass market for the WSSMs. There are thousands of Browning and Winchester WSSM rifles out there and more WSSM AR-15's continuing to be made right now. Let's all pray someone starts making the brass soon.

I have been getting many requests about WSSM brass and ammo. If you are in need of brass or ammo, like so many of us are, I recommend that you contact Winchester and ask them what is up.

We have a supplier of WSSM brass! Bill at Hill Billy Brass is forming WSSM brass from WSM brass. Thank you Bill!
