    7x57 brass and Large Primers

    While having a clean out, I've come across 26 rounds of once fired S&B 7X57 cases and a new packet of Winchester large rifle primers (100).

    Wouldn't mind doing a swap for some .277 140gr Accubonds (or 270wsm brass), if anyone is keen.

    Picked up a nice pile of 270wsm brass tonight so I am only after some pills now if anyone wants to do a swap.

    I think I've got some 140 gr Accubonds here spare. Do you want a whole box or some to try?
    I'll have to check how many I've got actually

    Perfect!

    Whatever you want to spare.
    I am going to stick with the 140gr accubonds as they are working well so far.

    Cheers

    hey cambo, do you have any other .277 projectiles to swap? I've only got 35 of the accubonds left. Im using them up then swapping to bergers (currently working up loads). What speeds are you getting from the 270wsm? Im using 2213sc and getting 2850 fps ave, this is my first lot of loading and have since learnt its a the lowest node of accuracy as the vlds are going 2860fps. Neither have any pressure signs, but are loaded towards accuracy and low ES, rather than speed

    I don't have any pills left.
    Dunno what speed I'm getting as I haven't shot over a chrony with it yet. I'm just concentrating on groupings and accuracy at the moment.
    I'm also just using up the 2209 powder I have before I try something else.

    If anyone wants the brass and/or primers, and you can pick them up they're yours.
