I have searched high and low for Federal brass and it's not to be found, so I came up with this. Go to Wally World, purchase Federal hunting ammo for $18 you get 20 rounds, for $36 YOU GET 40, use them for foul shots and fireform them at the same time. Now you have 40 reloadable cases. If you were to by 50 brass cases you would pay just about that much and still have to load fouling rounds. Before you say anything I have been using the same ten cases for the 11th time and have not had to full length size them for my Rem 700 .308 only neck size, and am getting 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inch groups at 500 yards. Just food for thought for those looking for Federal brass.

The only problem that I've had with any Federal .308 brass was when I used a near max load of Varget with a 165-168 grain bullet. The bolt would stick and I'd have to do some work to get it open. This was in a NIB Savage model 12. The near max loads of RL 15 didn't give me any problems..
I know it didn't take but one shot for me to pull the Varget loads.

My son won't use any Federal brass, in any caliber.
Nor will he use military brass...
