    About 4 years now I think. It takes time to bring something to market and Buff (IIRC) has indicated that this is supposed to be a sure thing, according to Jay.

    I suspect that brass is going to cost a premium though when it comes to market. I hope is will be reasonably prices as I would probably buy 5K cases as a first purchase.

    I have pre-production samples inbound at some point in the next week or two. His originally journey was trying to source Starline to develop commercial brass from their movie blanks they provided for Hollywood 5.7 use. I have a prototype of that sitting at home; no headstamp, no coating. There were a few of those pieces that made it out to people for testing, but that never came to fruition.

    EA's own brass development is in-house production. They are moving(ed) to a new facility. They have brass forming machines, loaders, annealing, coating, etc. No clue on cost. EA talks a little about output capacity in one of their coffee chats. Mods would have to approve that video being posted here, as EA is not a vendor.

    I see this article was from a year ago. Is there any word on whether Sellier & Bellot will still be putting out rounds for us?

    I emailed them a while ago, maybe when they announced it at shotshow last year. They never responded.

    Nope, I haven't heard back from them. I sent them an email 2/17, and then 3/30, with no response. I'll wait a week or so again and email again
    ..

    Heck it took me a year to get two samples from Liberty with their Animal Instinct line
