    Does someone know if Bloomberg has controlling interest in Remington Brass factory or does he own the buildings and lock the doors? I have look and not found any Remington brass in size from 17 Fireball thru 45-70 and all the metric size. I have looked at least six different online suppliers - not any.

    Maybe Remington found out that their brass is some of the worst made in the industry,and stopped producing it.

    I must respectfully disagree. Strongly. I prefer military brass to any commercial, but if forced to use commercial, I prefer Remington.

    The reason you're having trouble finding it, I believe, is that all of the brass their mills turn out is being used to make Remington factory ammunition.

    I also prefer Remington. But I am new at the reloading, I only started in the late fifties, so you see I am new at the game. In all that time Remington and Lapau have been my go to brass. LC is good but very limited on calibers. I have reloaded 221, 223, 260 7-08, 300 Savage, 308, 30-06. and 358 Remington cases up to fifteen times. I do anneal neck at least every three loads. I weight and sort cases. I do not load hot loads. Remington cases weights overall closer to the same weight than any other including Lapau and LC.

    Remington is not the only one that is short on some brass. When I started reloading it was about 1/3 the cost of factory ammo. Today at times you can purchase factory ammo for less than reloading. Not saying it is good ammo, but it goes bang.

    first of all, Bloomberg, nor Soros have any interest in Remington, Freedom Group, or Cerberus Capital Management. one of those silly internet myths that got started several years ago, by who knows who.

    if anything, they are probably focusing on their own ammo production, rather than supplying reloading components. they could be having a supply issue of some sorts.

    I have a friend that is an expert on generators and motors and a few years ago someone came to him wanting a ball stamp machine to destroy fire military brass, he basically said that there are people that don't want us to have re-loadable brass. I don't know if he set it up, I hope not but if he didn't I'm sure someone has. Like Dallas I believe the Bloomberg/ Soros thing are a myth, I did some research and that was my conclusion.

    Out of all the different brands of brass that I use in the 15 different cartridges that I reload for,only Remington brass has ever plagued me with split necks.
    223 - 25/06 - 308 - 30/06 - 44 Magnum brass from Remington has always split necks on the first,second,or third firing. And I'm religious about annealing my brass.

    No other brand of brass splits the necks like Remington brass. If you guy's like it,then buy all you want,I hate the stuff.

    Where did you get any Remington brass since Obama took office?
    I have RP brass that is almost 50 years old without splitting.
    The only splitting brass I have is some ancient .221 Fireball boxed component brass.
    It is cracking in the box without being fired.
