    I need 307 Winchester (not 308 Win) brass. Anyone? I need 307 Winchester stamped brass. I have an old friend who's wife has run out of ammo for her model 94 lever gun. And they haven't saved their brass. Gunbroker has a few but we're are in AK. Not many people will ship here.

    Yeah I could use 444 but really would like to get 307 head stamped brass.

    All out of stock. Have already hit everywhere. Gunbroker has some but I'm not paying those prices and then there is the AK shipping issue.

    This is not the answer you are looking for. Sometimes trying to move the mountain is not worth the effort. Might I suggest you tell your friends you will help them with a work around, but they need to do their part. Several options. Find them a source for complete loaded ammo instead of brass, and tell them to religiously save all of their old brass as they can, as nothing is getting cheaper. That will be obvious from the cost of a relatively obscure cartridge. They are the problem here, by their actions, not you. #2 Try to convince them to trade/sell the 307 and upgrade to a more common caliber and rifle similar to match that meets their needs and tastes. Even then stress the need to saving spent brass.
    I actually spend a bit of time looking for ammo or brass for this rifle after posting above. when everywhere doesn't have what you are looking for and you see adds like this, it is time to change caliber/and weapon ... Winchester Super-X Ammo 307 Winchester 180 Grain Power-Point

    Well, hate to say it, but maybe she's better off ditching the rifle for one that she can get ammo for. This is a real problem with firearms that are chambered in oddball calibers, especially in a remote location. Imagine trying to find .348 Winchester ammo? Good luck.

    If she were looking for ammo for a rifle chambered in .308, there would be few issues. It's everywhere and in just about every imaginable bullet weight and configuration. This lesson was not lost on the last generation who purposely opted for rifles chambered in .30-06, probably one of the most common center-fire calibers.

    I should take that 307 model 94 off their hands...the thought has crossed my mind. Sweet lever gun. I am bidding on some 307 brass on Gunbroker now.

    Is the seller able to ship to your AO?

    Should be no problem with MT brass. It's the ready to go bang stuff that becomes problematic.

    Keep your eyes on eBay, sooner or later you will find a great deal. Case in point, I have a BAR in .30-06 (LOVE this rifle) and after a few moves I lost the magazine. Mine is one generation than the current ones and uses a different mag, which translated to hard to find and when I did was close to a hundred bux :eek:. I decided one day I would go ahead and suck it up as without a mag the rifle was useless.To eBay I go, and stumble across a seller who had run across some NOS mags and had them for 5 bux a pop. I bought all six of them...

    178 empty cases. He's got 30 loaded too but he can keep those or pull the bullets and drop the powder. Then shipping to AK s ok.

    I don't have any .307 brass that I know of, May have a few pieces of .444 ?

    Just have them ship in a USPS Flat Rate Box.... "If it fits, It ships, anywhere in the USA, for ONE Fixed Price...." This is how I get my Lead Projectiles... cheap @ 1/2 the Price....

    I have sent and received flat rate packages from Guam it is the same price as sending it to Kansas. Really flat in Kansas and flat rate everywhere..

    Delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, or the U.S. Virgin Islands at domestic prices.

    Yeah, .307 in the Winchester 94 big bore sucks as much as the .375 Winchester in the same model.
    Loaded ammo costs as much .. if not more than the .375 H&H Magnum or .50 BMG.

    Those extinct calibers are a serious drain on the pocket book.

    I almost ditched my 1906 Remington (pre model 8) in .35 Remington. Fortunately my 2 year old backorder for a case of ammo and 100 reformed from .308 brass. It was like they were crafted from Unobtainium as opposed to brass.
