244 Remington brass


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I recently pitched about a dozen pieces of 244 Remington brass and it just dawned on me, somebody on hear might woud have like to added some to their collection. So, my question is, if I come across anymore would anyone be interested. Don't know if any is still left around or not, a couple might show up. If so would anyone like to have it. Most of these are leftovers from the first couple of bags of brass I bought for my 6mm. I bought mine the first year they renamed it to the 6mm and a lot of the brass floating around still had the 244 headstamp.

Is there a reason you don't want to use the 244 headstamped cases in your 6mm?

The brass is used up and pass it's safe life. I've had several split near the base and just don't trust it, so I pitched it and a number of my older pieces of 6mm that have been around forever. The stuff is too cheap to mess with for the problems it can cause when it gets too brittle.

Cool

I have a .244 REM. Yes they are rare now. I have a Remington carboard box for 244; 20 round but the ends are in terrible shape. I took it home and dried it. I,ll hang onto it till I get something better. Who knows, your brass 20 years from now might be a hit.

I hope every shooter has a 'throw it in the can' can for selling for scrap..

If you belong to a club, Ill bet the club sells brass. On the other hand there is not much brass around-everyone is now a 'collector'.
