.348 Winchester Brass and Dies Arrive

I got the dies because I could but what I really wanted was the .348 brass to become .45-75 Winchester brass. I'm so excited! Another step closer to fun times.

Another option for forming the .45-75 is to start with .50-90 Sharps brass. It is all a matter of cost and availability. If I found the brass, for less than the .348 or Jamison, that's what I'd do. I'm afraid that it is pretty expensive as Starline sells it for $1.16 per each or $286 per 250 cases. Jamison .45-75 is $1.25 per each or $124.99 per hundred (not including shipping) and the Bertram is $2.85 per each or $56.99 for a box of 20. .348 Winchester brass (when available) goes for $.59 per each or $29.49 per bag of 50. If the .348 Winchester is unavailable or you don't want to thin rims the .50-90 looks a lot better price wise.
