In search of 225 Winchester brass. I have some brass to trade, let me know what you might be looking for.

Only way to find that stuff is if I actually make it. But you might find some on GB or places like that.

Chances of finding 225 brass are slim. To make them, my book The Handloader's Manual of Cartridge Conversions by John J. Donnelly says:
"Make from:
30-30 Winchester. Anneal case. 219 Zipper or 219 Don. Wasp progressive necking dies may be used to slowly reduce neck dia. Watch shoulder location! FL size in 225 Win. die. Trim. Fire form in chamber. Reduce rim dia. as required. I have never had to thin the 30-30's rim, for 225 Win. but, this may depend on the actual weapon."
Hope this helps,

The 2 on the right have the necks sized down and then run through the sizer die. The 2 on the left are after Hydroforming and brings the gauge dimension to spec without fire forming. Then I machine and anneal the case very last.
