    You'll probably have to turn necks. Just because it has a .232 OD doesn't mean it's .203 ID.

    I'll bet your right! I have to turn mine for at least 12thou to fit. For all that work seems the price is a steal.:D

    I have used his 221, 20 VT, and 17FB Brass. Comes exceptionally clean and uniform. Trim lengths are perfect. Necks are too thick unless you have a commercial chamber but you know that already. He can trim to custom lengths or custom size if you request it. Best part is you can get same year LC brass which really helps shrink the groups. He also anneals all cases after sizing with an annealeaz. It's the closest thing there is to "ready to load" for the VT. I've compared his brass side by side to high plains and his gets the nod for consistency.

    I follow him on Facebook, he generally has some sort of estate sale product going as a fire sale. He also ships very quickly. Usually have the package here in Fargo by the next morning.

    I wouldn't want to form it for that price that's for sure. I turn mine to 12 thou for a .232 chamber

    That is a wonderful resource.

    But alas, I do not see .225 Win brass. I know you can form .30-30 brass into it, but the thickness of the low-pressure .30-30 brass is not comparable to the high-pressure .225 brass. Nor are the rim diameters equivalent: .506 for the .30-30 vs .473 for the .225.

    (Many thanks to the poster who pointed this out to me.)

    Great inventory and selection of hard to find calibers, price and shipping. I've ordered several times and never had a problem.

    Bloc I worked with a guy back in the late 70s that had a 225, they couldn't find ammo back then. Either make it or rebarrel. I don't think you have a choice. How much brass do you have?
