For those of you reloading 300BLK, what brand brass are you loading?

I've made a bunch from LC brass with the mini chop saw and a jig sourced from evilbuy. Click the link and scroll down for video.

Creed are you planning on loading subsonic, or super? What do you plan on using it for-varmints? Pigs? Target practice?

If you are wanting to make your own, the setup that Okie posted is the best way to go in my opinion.

I have been using the exact gear for about three years.

As for Brass, I have been using LC.

Do NOT use S&B Brass!!! It is too thick. It will not chamber once converted.

We sized & sectioned at least 5 mfr's of Brass when we started setting up for making 300blk.

Long story short, LC & Win. had a good case wall thickness for yielding good 300blk cases.

I use lc brass. I never bought the jig though. I measured out where it needed to stop an put a little plastic block there with 2 sided foam tape.

It's worked well for around 2000 cases so far, may get a wild hair and make some more in the near future though.

Edit to add, I did notice that if I used the 9mm shell holder that I have(it holds the brass fine) that the shoulder was always off by a little bit compared the the rcbs .223 shell holder.

Just something to remember to do right because I wasted about 50pcs of brass before I caught it. Since then I've kept the shellholder for the .300 brass with the dies and not on the little rack I built.

Supersonic, likely 125 grains to start.

Thanks for all the info guys.

Has anyone heard of or bought from Everglades Ammo? I may have screwed the pooch, but I just ordered 500 "Gemtech" headstamped new brass from them. Reviews looked fairly good. For $84.00 I thought it would be worth the chance.

Okay 125'ers but what are you going to be sticking them little pins into?

You hunting, or just plinking?

Hunting. Coyotes, hogs, bobcats.

What does that have to do with the brass question?
