Custom Cartridge Brass
.219 Donaldson Wasp, 6mm Wasp, 7mmUS, 6.5mm US, 357 Herrett, 7-30 Waters, 6.5mm BR Magnum, 7mm BR Magnum, 300 BR Magnum, 30 Herrett, and 375 Winchester.We got into making custom brass when we introduced the 7mmUS cartridge. Since 7mmUS is derived from the .219 Donaldson Wasp, it's only natural to also make the .219DW. 7-30 Waters and 30 Herrett we added at the request of customers. And .375 Winchester we make up for our .375 Winchester Match as well as standard .375 Winchester guns.
Wildcat Head Stamp - We have made our custom brass from new, unfired 30-30 and 38-55 head stamped brass... From various manufacturers. The head stamp is not changed in the custom brass forming process. On this brass, the head stamp is different from the actual chamber.
Bench Rest Magnum Brass and Dies - These cartridges were developed to give big game hunting performance to small frame firearms like the T/C Contender, Brown BF Pistol, and Brown Model 97D Rifle. The BR Magnum philosophy is described in detail in our free technical reports.
Also Bench Rest Magnum load data is available... click here. We offer custom formed, ready to load brass for 6.5mm BRM, 7mm BRM, and 300 BRM. 6mm BRM and 224 BRM are made by full length sizing the 6.5mm BRM in their respective sizing dies.
6.5mm BRM Brass - Derived from the original 219 Donaldson Wasp bench rest competition cartridge, 6.5mm BRM has the same highly efficient shape only its slightly longer to allow for about 10 grains more powder... Which makes it a "magnum" capacity on the original bench rest cartridge... Thus "Bench Rest Magnum" or "BRM. The 6.5mm BRM cartridge is a modern, high efficiency cartridge with performance similar to the original 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser. It is our most popular chambering in our Model 97D Rifles, TC Encore Accuracy Barrels, and TC Contender and G2 Accuracy Barrels.

219 and 6mm Donaldson Wasp Brass - Originally derived from 219 Zipper, the 219 Donaldson Wasp is a .224 caliber Benchrest cartridge developed by Harvey Donaldson. It is often credited with being the "Godfather of Bench Rest Cartridges" because the case capacity and 30 degree shoulder have been carried over to the modern "BR" cartridges. Our brass is formed in four steps from brand new Remington 30-30 cases and then cut to length. It's ready-to-load like any standard cartridge brass. This brass can also be formed into 6mm Wasp by full length sizing in a 6mm Wasp sizing die.

375 Winchester Brass - Originally developed as a "Big Bore" cartridge for 30-30 style lever action rifles, the 375 Winchester has proven itself very versatile in single shot handguns and rifles. The availability of original ".375 Win" headstamped brass has been disappointing however. Currently, we make our 375 Winchester brass from brand new, unfired 30-30 brass. Reload life depends on the pressure of your loads and the looseness of your chamber. Our BF Pistols and Model 97 Rifles are chambered to fit this brass and high performance rounds get plenty of reloads.
