    I currently reload for my 1907 which is in .351 WSL. I use 350 legend brass and trim it down to the right length and it works but it gets tedious after a while. I have about 15 head stamped 351 JBA bullets that I got with the rifle. Wondering if anyone knows where to get any cheaper 351 brass. RCC sells it but it is like $5 a case and that’s just unreasonable in my opinion.

    A faster way to cut them? Chop saw? Nice looking cartridges. How do they work.

    I know a lot of people trim 223 down to blackout using a tiny chop saw from harbor freight. And you could buy the starlne 223 bAsic brass instread of 350 legend. Might be cheaper and work better. https://www.starlinebrass.com/223-basic

    The Qual price is for 50. The Bertram price is for 20.

    The qual price is $1.36 a case, the OP said he was seeing $5.00 a case.

    Ok. Thought you meant the BA.
    They are formed and might not last as long, though.

    They work great. 17 gr of 4227. 180 gr soft point bullets. I used a dewalt drill and loosened it all the way up and they put an unprimed case in there and tightened it on the case (it will not hurt it) then took a pipe cutter and put it on the case and turned on the drill on so it spins the case as it is being cut. Then just trimmed the cases after that

    If you do not shoot the 351 all that much, as a brass scatterer, I would just make my brass from 223 military brass and process it. If it gets lost, no big deal, like the commercial high dollar fodder might be..
