The reason is cost. It's about $40 for 50 new cases. That's all well and good for Grand Dads deer gun who shoots a couple boxes of ammo per season. I shoot a couple hundred rounds of .300 Sav per week so I was looking for a cheaper alternative to that in order to build up stocks of say 1000-1500 rounds at any given time. I don't want to do that at $39 for every 50 just for brass. I was looking to spend about half of that honestly.You lost me. I was referring to the OP who started the thread. Brass is available at two of the big online component stores, no reason to bother with forming from other rounds.
