    Once fired 223 brass

    I'm looking for a batch of 200+ cases, ideally all the same brand, for conversion to 300BLK.

    This conversion requires specific brands to be used (many brands are too thick), so I am needing specific makes. (I've got ~2000+ fired cases sitting in the garage but they are mainly all Geco and unsuitable for conversion )

    Suitable brands are listed as 'Good' below - but judging by commonly available ammo here in NZ, I 'd be expecting to maybe be to find FC, PMC, Winchester or Hornady. Or ADI if anyone can source ex military surplus....

    Let me know what you have got...
    Cheers
