    I got raped for $120 a box locally last week. I thought that should have been a felony.

    I believe they’re located in Australia.

    Then I would really not like the shipping cost.

    If anyone wants some for $120 a box, let me know and I can see if the local guy still has some.

    A little more reading on the web-site, say's they don't ship out Lapua brass or Berger bullets beyond Australia.
    All for NADA

    It's loaded ammo. I was kinda kidding, kinda not. It really isn't a bad deal. If you have a new straight 6BR barrel or BRA with a no turn neck, you could break in your barrel/ fire form with it. I did it about a year ago, and the brass that came as loaded ammo had necks about .0005" thicker than the new blue box brass that I have. Who knows, it may shoot great, too.

    My experience with the Lapua 6BR ammo is it is a great deal if you have a .272 chambered BR barrel. All that I did was to partially pull out the bullet & then reseat it to get the correct SD. It was accurate enough to compete with in 200 yd matches. Then sent the brass to DJBS to hydro-form to 6 Dasher.

    My son in law bought 500 Lapua bullets with the 90 grain Scenar for $1.65 each. I did the same thing, pulled the bullets out slightly, seated them .010 back from jam and they went from 1/2 MOA to 1/4 MOA. Very high quality bullet.

    Anyone able to contact Brad about brass? I ordered 2 boxes when it said it was in stock. Card was charged. Tried calling after to confirm it was in stock....no answer. Left a message and no call back yet...

    I just called to verify, while looking at his site at the same time. Just as he answered, the site loaded and said out of stock now. So I imagine yours should have shipped. Though they do answer the phone. He said they expect more in about two weeks.

    Bruno's Shooter's Supply sent me an E-mail about a hour ago.
    Web-site showed Lapua 6mm BR as IN-Stock at 0.89 a piece.
