I say you better make those 550 pieces of brass last. I sold my Martini Cadet in 218 Bee for several reasons. One was hard to find expensive brass. I switched to 222 Rem as a replacement for 218 Bee. Here is some 218 Bee brass on GB if you want to bid on it: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=526406897Anyone know of 218 brass runs being made? Would like to get about 100 more for replacements when I lose some. Have about 550 or so now.
here is another listing:
That looks like an acceptable price ($1.00 per round). Unfortunately, they have none in stock. When they do get more in stock, they may keep the price as is or, as I have seen happen, raise the price.When these guys have them in stock they use Winchester brass at a decent price. Might wanna save the link.
