I had bought a new Remington CDL-700 in .300 Remington Ultra Magnum about seven years ago, intending to use it for a elk hunt in Idaho, but was in an auto accident, and had surgery to repair my rotator cuff and splintered right collarbone. I never fired it. My surgeon said that I would be lucky to one day work up to shooting a .22 LR off my right shoulder. After working up with heavier rifles over time, I can now shoot a seven pound .30-06 now, and that will meet my needs. I fired one round out of a friend's .300 Win Mag I knew that the .300 RUM was never going to be a regular shooter. I sold my it today, but the new owner is not a reloader. I am left with just over 300 rounds of new Remington brass and a new set of Hornady reloading dies with a micrometer bullet seating stem that I will never use. If I had been in his shoes, and knew the price of factory ammunition, I'd have bought the brass and dies, bought a good press and taken up reloading. With careful reloading practice, staying away from maximum loads, resizing as little as possible and annealing case mouths occasionally; 300 rounds of brass would last a very long time. I've been doing that for a long time with a lot of Norma 6.5x55mm Swedish Mauser brass; still one of my favorite calibers. I have searched the web and have found that companies like Midway, Cabela's, Natchez and others list the brass at $120 to $140 for 100, but no one has any in stock, with no back orders and some listing it as no longer being manufactured. I want to sell the brass and dies but don't have a clue as to where to do so. eBay doesn't allow sale of brass and I don't have any experience any where else. I don't know where to sell it, whether to sell it by the 100 lots or 50 at a time or what to charge. I'd appreciate a bit of advice. Thank you in advance.:)

Hello,

I would like to buy them from you. From my experience. ..they generally go for around $1.00 each. If you have a price in mind, please let me know, as I am in need of some .300 RUM brass. I just bought a Remington 700 Sendero SFll.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks!
Rob
