Okay, question for you guys.

I've noticed that brass manufacturers make this brass, but last I heard, nobody's ever offered a commercially available firearm that uses it.

I didn't think all that many WWII leftover StG44's were extant.... so where is this stuff used? I'm sure it's a fun cartridge to play with in your Contender or something, and would have made a cool choice for something like a Marlin Camp 8 or maybe a modified AR10, but I've never seen any articles in the gun rags or anywhere else about loading it. If brass is available, there has to be a demand somewhere for it.

Please shed some light... thanks in advance for your answers.

I was not aware of anyone making brass for it, with the exception of Privi Partisan.

The only demand for it I can think of is shooters with registered machineguns, and probably more importantly, WWII reinactors who shoot a lot of blanks.

WWII Germany was the last country making guns chambered for it.

having said that, I've heard of at least one account of a STG-44 being found in an arms cache in Iraq.
