Hi all, I have two 25-20 WCF rifles, a 92 Win carbine and a 94 Marlin CL.  Most of my brass is used up and I need to get some new brass.  Because of the so called ammo hoarding I have not been able to find any to purchase.  I have tried reforming 32-20 to 25-20 and it does work but I find the necks of the formed 25-20 brass gets inconsistent neck thickness.  Does anyone know of a source for 25-20 WCF brass?Bob 1B50

Thanks a lot!  The 25-20 Single Shot is not the same as 25-20 WCF though!  Thanks anyway, Bob 11B50

You might consider necking up .218 Bee brass if you can find it. I had about 600 cases of .218 Bee given to me several years ago since I owned a .218 Bee. This old .218 Bee brass was mostly original .25-20 and .32-20 and I necked it back to .25-20. There was some original .218 brass in this also. All of this was mixed headstamp, mostly W-W and Remington.  The one problem was the original .218 Bee brass split the necks. After several splits, I sorted these cases, annealed them and had no further problem. The reason for mentioning the need to anneal is that you might experience the same since the .218 Bee brass seemed stiffer in the sizing die. I have also necked Starline .32-20 brass down to .25-20 and that went well. The availability of brass situation seems to be easing, but .218 Bee might also be hard to find.
