You can find 218 Bee on Gunbroker, but it's expensive - both ammunition and brass. Starline sells 32-20 brass that can be formed into 218 Bee, and it's less expensive.

32-20 or 25-20 can be turned into 218 bee. Fun little round. Saw some 218 bee from PPU not long ago at Cabela's. Not sure if they have any more now or not

Fun Little Round .... Back in 1959 was growing up in W Texas, learned to reload with old Lyman "nutcracker" while shooting a .218 Bee. Seems like Winnie 43 if I remember correctly. Only other calibers I remember "varmint" were .220 swift, .22 Hornet, and the new hot bench record setting .222 Remington. Can't remember ever checking barrel twist or discussing it. All I wanted to do was bust another jackrabbit. I could see ticks on the rabbit ears with that 4x Lyman scope.

As the old expression goes, "it was the berries"
