    ****** UPDATE 9 April 2019 ******

    Lake City did not work out, the primer pocket was too tight to swage properly on the equipment I am using at any kind of speed. PMC is now available

    ****** UPDATE 13 Feb 2019 ******
    Processed 308 / 7.62 Nato should be available by the end of the month. I just got a notification that my back ordered parts are on their way to me.

    First batch will be Lake City '16 and following that PMC. It is all subject to what the ranges are using at any given time.



    ******************************
    I am looking at adding 7.62 x 51mm Nato brass processed. I probably have 50,000 pieces of Lake City '16 sitting around

    It would not be Camdex processed. So no ringer check or crack check like the .223 / 5.56mm

    Hence it would be

    Deprimed
    Swaged primer pockets
    Resized
    Trimmed to length

    Pricing would be representative of the base cost of the brass, in addition to tooling, and labor expenses.

    I am happy to hear constructive feedback.

    I have to run and see what the throughput and consumption of parts is like before I can provide an accurate pricing. It will be attractive enough to justify loading your own ammunition.

    You know I'll be in for some. Thanks for continuing to try and make this available.
    My wife calls me a pessimist. I claim I'm a realist. But I'm probably just an a$$hole with an attitude problem.

    Would you be interested in selling it unprocessed?
    I find lc to be very consistent for reloading, but I have the automated press in my basement to process already.
    Thanks
