Was just looking at my wish list at Midway and noticed that 100 count 444 brass is $80.00... Any one have ideas on why this is so expensive? It must be because it is a low volume item...
If they did, it probably wouldn't be any cheaper than Hornady brass.I have always wondered why Starline isn't making 444 brass.
It must be. I bought my 444 new in '07 and two 100 piece boxes of 444 brass from midway for reloading. $40.00 @ 100. The box of nickel plated was $45.00 @ 100.I have also been paying $40/50 pieces for about 11/2 years. So if you see it buy it because I think its now made from the rare earth mineral unobtainium.
Price looks about right. The casing manufactures only make 444 between July and September each year. Seasonal stuff for the most part. I have been collecting the casings each year with a 100 units each year. The 444 casings last along time, and in a season, I may fire those casings may be twice in a season, evening checking out the drop dead center. Have fun with the 444, you are going to like that rifle.Was just looking at my wish list at Midway and noticed that 100 count 444 brass is $80.00... Any one have ideas on why this is so expensive?

I can't imagine any brass maker producing short 444 brass when all the reloader has to do is trim the brass down. Remington was the only one making brass for the 444 and then Hornady offers ammo in both 444 brass length so probably trim their own as needed. IF you can't here try Guns for Sale - Online Gunbroker or other action sites.Does Hornady sell the short brass as a component or does a guy have to purchase loaded gummy tips to get some? Does anyone here have maybe 20-40 cases thay would like to sell?
