    Hi Scott,

    The parent case for the Wasp was the .25-35. However, you can use the .30-30 to form it from. The good folks at Sierra Bullets have great load data available for it. Here at Sinclair, we keep the Redding forming, & loading dies, in stock. In addition to the loading dies, Redding is showing three forming dies that will be needed to form the brass for your needs. I hope that this will help you out with your project.

    Cordially,
    Bob Blaine

    Can't help either but it sure has a cool name! Shot well in its day so see no reason why it should not do the same for you with today's great selection of components and powders.

    Go for it and good luck :thumb:

    EA Brown offers preformed brass at $40@100 and there is a Yahoo group called the 219wasp group that has all kinds of info on it. I had one in a T/C from Bullberry, beware there are two versions, the original Red Elliott and the second, that is longer by the thickness of the Rim.
