In need of brass to reload for Oregon grandson. Carries and shoots great little Browning A Bolt .243 WSSM. He has a reasonable amount. However, like this grandfather, he'll likely keep it for his lifetime. So, starting the search in his behalf. Cash on hand. Preferences for all the same head stamp, or at least good enough condition to reload safely.

243 WSSM brass and ammo is only made by Winchester and it doesn't look like they've been giving too much love to that cartridge recently. I did see an auction at gunbroker.com for 100 pieces of brass at $100 with about an hour remaining. That sort of thing may be your only option other than just getting lucky.

Good luck. You may be able to find someone who will sell you a bit of their personal stash. Don't be surprised to find FC headstamped brass. That huge batch was indeed made by Win, as the story goes, for FC to experiment with prior to adding that cartridge to their line of loaded ammo. It never worked out and the leftovers were released to retailers. Some of us were able to take advantage of the huge savings offered by a very few online retailers when buying 1000 pc. boxes. Sorry I cannot offer you any of mine but I have already shared out more than I should have with my son and a friend.

As Steve mentioned, haunt the sites like gun broker or gunsamerica--possibly E-bay and again, good luck-oh and I think everyone who has that brass knows all this so don't expect to find any bargains.........

Gavlweld, Diamond K Brass has some once fired 243wssm cases for sale "Now" I get all of my brass from them and they are great to work with.

Well that's real heartwarming and all but good luck with that. A boutique round such as that is hotter than the .243 Winchester.. the classic barrel burner of all rounds.
That barrel will probably go 1000 rounds.
