    Just in "case" you didn't know, .310 Cadet brass alturnitive.

    Tired of paying Bertrum Brass prices? No lathe on hand?, too lazy to hand trim .32-20 brass rims down?
    7.62 Nagant Pistol brass trimmed back works in all my .310 rifles very well. Trim the brass to the length as there are two lengths you need for your bullet type being used..
    Privi makes the brass and you can find it on sale for far less than .310 or .32-20 brass.
    No base bulge when fired,extracts like butter, and I've reloaded cases ten times so far ( annealed after five sizings
    Give them it a try.

    Thats a nice to know tidbit! I look for the .310 Cadets off and on, but usually get outbid. Todd

    That is a handy thing to know but I think Nagant brass would be a bit like the proverbial rocking horse manure in Australia. Regards Stephen

    Good to know, wish I had known earlier, I passed on some super cheap figuring I just didn't need them.

    Several years ago they imported a bunch of those little pistols into the U.S. There is a fair amount of loaded ammo and brass available. I bought one for I think $129 from the local Cabela's and they have had ammo ever since. Someone else at the club must have one also because several times a year I find a batch of once fired for it in the brass bucket. That doesn't get sold to the scrap dude to fund range improvements.

    Compared to some catridges, Bertram 310 brass isn't too bad for the cost, average of $27/20. There is also the odd box or more of Super 310 factory ammo that turns up for reasonable prices. Last I saw Super factory was $28 a box of 20.
    Certainly beats paying $176 a box for Remington 25-20 factory!
