    What caliber brass is in demand here?

    disclaimer: this is a discussion thread, post your offerings in the PIF forum.

    I just looked thru some of the PIF brass offerings, and I've noticed that certain calibers don't move to quick.

    please post what brass you would jump on if it were posted.

    BTW tinhorn, I don't have any of that. But if I come across any I'll be sure to post it up. Thanks for the quick reply!

    444marlin, 44-40, 32-20, 327fed, 32H&R mag, 32 S&W short or long, and 22hornet. I'm just not on here when most of this type stuff comes up.

    Agree with dagunut.

    .444Marlin seems to always be in demand.

    The .32's I watched for 3 weeks and gave up, bought 500 new from Starline.

    .44mag also seems to fly fast, as does .303 british.

    I'm in good shape for most brass. My local range sells it reasonable. Pistol brass is essentially scrap brass price. Bit more for .45acp brass. I have 25 lb boxes of 9mm, .40sw, .45acp.

    Rifle calibers only thing I am what I would consider short on is .444marlin brass. I have 150 and have been practicing some restraint, letting those who have none have first shot.

    .223, 7.62x39 I have over a thousand of each just waiting. Most of my calibers have around 300 rounds loaded and brass waiting for need. So I can afford to be fussy.

    .45 acp – they seem to have a way of flying farther than I can find them.

    On every question of construction let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.

    Brass that raises my eyebrows:
    41 Swiss CF (or 348 Win and 8mm Lebel to form 41 Swiss)(I'd love to have an original rimfire or 2)
    .38 Special Wadcutter brass
    7.65 Argentine
    7.62x54R actual boxer brass.
    .38 Super, .38 Super Comp, .38 Todd Jarrett
    .303 British
    7.62x25 again, actual boxer brass
    6.5 Carcano

    I wouldn't pass a good deal on 9mm, .40S&W, .38/.357, 30-30, 30-06, .223/5.56

    I can think of more that i don't have the gun for but am planning on acquiring.

    25-20 Single shot
    32 Long colt
    30-40 krag

    I don't need the .32 colt brass, but when I sold some it went quick.

    I would also love some 360 NE 2 1/4" or 9.3x72R (NOT x74R)

    I collect all things .32. If you have something you don't need, please let me know!
