I bet this is expensive!
$5 a round is way beyond what any shooter with a tiny bit of common sense would pay.
Federal either knows a whole bunch of idiots with a lot of money,or they really don't plan on loading very many "Custom" loads for anyone.
Yeah I’m not sure if there’s much of a market for it
I saw a site one time that makes custom brass. Some of his prices were more than 5.00 a casing.
brass for old obsolete rounds?
I just looked at their website and laughed!
The only thing custom about this custom shop ammo is being able to choose a few different bullets from other manufacturers.
Truly custom ammo is just that,custom made to the exact rifle that it's made for,not just seating another bullet into a case. You have to load and shoot for each rifle that the load is being built for in order to find the most accurate combination of powder,bullet,and seating depth.
I spend a lot of time,money,and effort finding the best custom hand loads for each of my firearms. The way I see it,if Federal isn't testing any loads out of your particular firearm,then you're wasting your money on their so called custom ammo. It may shoot good,it may not.
I wouldn't be willing to spend $100 to find out!
Been loading my own "custom" ammunition since 1954. Don't need Federals very expensive stuff.
I found the site.
I wanna know who's stupid enough to pay $233 for 50 pieces of .223 Rem brass. Actually, it would be $268.80 after taxes and shipping...
Just why? Why would anyone need that? I can understand charging $5 a case for some long obsolete round that cannot be easily formed from some other kind of case, but .223 Rem? Why?
