The people I meet at work - Obsolete brass resource

-I sell and support lab equipment for a living. Recently I was asked to assist a new customer in his search for the right lab balance for his business. Turns out his business is manufacturing brass for custom and obsolete ammo. I'm leery of posting for a commercial enterprise but after looking at what's available in his library (including my beloved Webley .455 Auto) I think they could be a valuable resource for those of us who want to occasionally shoot crazy rare stuff. Not cheap but when you factor in everything I think it's a bargain. For example, I'll be ordering brass for my .280 Ross M10 Sporters. Ross forming dies cost a fortune and have to be made to order. So for the limited number to times I'll be shooting them it makes sense to be able to buy brass.
-The company name is Roberson Cartridge. Check out their vast Library and Process section. They can make brass to your chamber dimensions, custom mark the headstamp (easy since they CNC engrave instead of stamping), make wildcat cartridges of your own design.

I can see a cadet rifle coming out of this already. Thanks for posting this information.

Well crap. I have always told myself that I am not going to buy a Chicago Palm Pistol because there is no way I'm finding ammo for it. I guess that excuse won't hold water anymore.... they have .32 rf extra short. Whoda' thunk it??
