I wonder what Weatherby does with their once fired brass they get, when they do their accuracy testing. It would be a sweet deal, if, say once a year, offered it for sale on their website or though here somehow.  I'm sure they would have no trouble getting rid of it.   8)

I'm sure there are employees that reload that get 1st pick on that
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I bought some off GB years ago and the guy said it came from Weatherby that they had used. Don't know if he had bought it from them on contract or an employee etc.

Years ago Weatherby sold it themselves but when I called to order some two years ago I was told that they stopped doing that and they were going to sell it to some store(s) and the store would sell it.  I know MidwayUSA use to sell it but I haven't seen it on there in a long time.  I wish Weatherby would start selling it themselves again.

Brassman brass sells them, and they are in the Weatherby boxes.  I've purchased brass from them, and I was told that they do get it from Weatherby.  Their prices are not bad either, and good people to deal with.

I'll second the recommendation for Brassman.  Best prices around (for 6.5-300 anyway) and a stand up guy.
