Look what I found: Berdan-primed brass (once fired)

Post by professrh »

Came across this while out wandering around the internet: http://www.diamondkbrass.com/Berdan-Primed-Brass.html

Since we've been talking on and off, this spring and summer, about working with Berdan cases, I thought I'd post it. Prices seem reasonable, and I do have a few thousand suitable primers on hand.

Anybody got direct experience with this vendor?

No experience with the vendor, but thank you Prof for the link. I wish he had 7.5x55 swiss.

I would be very leery of buying once fired .303 Britt due to the problems with large chambers.

Do you have the .250" Berdan primer specific to most .303 Berdan brass? Not sold in the USA for 20 years or so.

And site shows "out of stock"..so?
