    WTT for 7.5 French brass

    Looking for 7.5x54 French boxer unprimed cases.
    Only looking to trade for 20 to 100 7.5 boxer primed brass cases.

    I have many different calibers to trade.
    Other than the brass that's listed below, I have a "few" of 24 more calibers. So if you have some 7.5 brass and don't see the caliber you need let me know, I may have a "few" of what you need.

    Here are the calibers I have in good quantities.

    222 new old stock unprimed Norma cases-2 boxes of 20
    5.56 once fired military brass
    223 civilian
    223 once fired Win nickel brass
    250 Savage
    257 Wby Mag reloaded once
    257 Ackley improved
    6mm Rem (maybe some 244 headstamped)
    7mm Mauser
    7.7 Arisaka (from 30-06)
    300 Blackout (from 5.56)
    LC 7.62x51
    LC 7.62x51 match
    308 civilian
    32 Win Special
    30-06 civilian maybe some Mil.
    350 Rem Mag
    35 Whelen (from 30-06)
    35 Rem
    50 bmg once fired military brass

    I'm not into the 577 Snyder but my father-in-law's son is and I find discussions with both of them quite intriguing.
    Over the holidays during visits I awarded them with a set of 460 or 480 Ruger dies for which I had no use.
    I'm told that a 28 ga. brass shotshell trimmed and necked with these dies will permit loading and fireforming the 577 Snyder
    A lot of places show out of stock but here's a place that's got 'em:!l=MAG&i=SBR28
    The conversations with these guys touched on a lot of topics. I could be confusing this process with the .577/450 Martini–Henry, so take this with a grain of salt.
    Good luck in your endeavors

    Thanks for the info Jimmy.
    I think you must mean the dies you mentioned are for reloading the 577/450. The neck dia. on the 577 is .602. I can't see how a 460 or 480 die would work considering the base diameter is only .504 for the 480 and .478 for the 460.
    I know that there is new 577 brass available but at the prices they are asking, I was hoping to find a trade. I don't really want to use shotgun hulls to fire the old girl. I have 28 ga. hulls I could use but I prefer having the correct head-stamp for my old rifles. That's just me though.
    I would very much appreciate it if you could ask your guys what bullet/ball they are using.
    Thanks again,

    sorry for the delay
    I need to get back here more often
    I've got feelers out for the bullet he uses in the process
    I've got a feeling that he casts his own
    He's quite resourceful
