where is the best place to buy 300 blackout brass ?
Buy a jig and make your own. Pays for itself in the first 500 cases you cut.
You have to full length size and trim. So the only added step is cutting the 5.56 brass.
If interested, I will tell you my setup when I get out of the woods.
Also sells new 300 BO brass
This, I do the same thing. Easy and makes shooting 300 as affordable as 556.
I've been lucky enough to pick up a bunch at the range.
I believe everybody that I know makes their brass from 223/556 brass.
I'm going to start making my own soon as well, but until then I've had great luck with Carolina Brass.
@Tusker6N If you don't mind, can you PM me your set up as well? The reviews for available saws/jigs are all over the place.
This is the setup I got, don't remember the web site...Pretty sure it was less than $100 shipped.
The jig works great and took about an hour to setup and adjust so my cut brass is only .02 longer than needed for trimming.
There is a 300 blackout website that gives a list of all brass that works and the few that don't. (Case wall thickness will prevent the loaded round from chambering)
I cut about 500 at a time. Remove the primers, then sonic clean them. Full length size with a Hornady die, cut to length, chamfer, deburr and then I'm ready to load.
This seller ships it with an extra blade and a catch basket as well.
Takes about 5 minutes to cut 100 cases, if that.
I ordered my saw and jig off amazon. I just chop them off at the shoulder, because I have this little gem for trimming.
I highly recommend it. I chuck it my drill press and I can trim a whole bucket full of cases in no time.
I so need to upgrade to one of those...Been eyeballing them for a while. Trimming is the least enjoyable part of the reloading process for me.
