Get the brass ASAP. It comes in waves- lots for a few weeks then MIA for 6-8 months. (This was my experience 7-8yrs ago- haven't shopped for it since)

I have a small collection of vintage ammo boxes, some with live ammo. I happen to have a box of Savage .303Sav with the Indian head. It may have a couple fired brass cases but the rest are live. I own an M99 but in .300Sav. If you guys with M99s in .303 would like to have it to go with your rifle, make me an offer. I’m open to most anything. I’m just nostalgic and believe some things just belong together.

My friend doesnt have the rifle yet.The guy who owns it now,says the last time he tried to shoot it ,the gun misfired.He has the dud cartridge and says it seems it had a good firing pin strike.I want to disassemble that round to see if the powder has spoiled.If that looks good,I will pull another bullet and see if the primer goes off.If its a firing pin problem,my friend might pass on the deal.

If all works out,I will ask my friend what he is willing to pay and I will see if you still have some available.
Thanks!!!!

I have only loaded for bolt action rifles and never messed with crimping.Since my friend's rifle has a rotary magazine and not a tube,I can forgo crimping these hand loads also......correct?

ps....I want to give 6Den some props.He has helped me out a lot!!!

Thanks, remrug, it was my pleasure. I don’t crimp for my Savage rotary.
