I've been looking over the specs for the 7x64mm cartridge and haven't come up with a cartridge that I could easily transform that brass into. Making 7x57mm from that brass doesn't look viable to me.

Any ideas?

I was chatting with a bud who manages the rifle & ammo section of a big box sporting goods store. I finally asked what possessed him to order up all that Core-Lokt 7mm Brenneke ammo that's been sitting there for now over a year?

He said it had been 'foisted' on him and he was now ready to offer a screamin' deal if someone would take all of it off his hands. Hmmm...

Problem is I can't figure out what to do with the brass, and he's not ready to unload it for the price of the Core-Lokt's. Not yet anyway. Probably in another 6 months though.

I saw a pile of the 7x64 Remington ammo on the shelf in the Harrisburg Sportsman Warehouse a few days ago. Seems like they had it marked around 25 a box.. Darned good deal if you had such a rifle and needed some ammo!

Are you talking Harrisburg, Pa?
I have a Savage 110 in 7x64. I bought 5 boxes of Sellier & Bellot, 158 gr. Don't know much about them, never shot them. Also about 100 handloads.
Would like to have a few boxes of Remington. Core-Lokts, I assume ? Where is Sportsman Warehouse in Harrisburg? I'm about 1 hour away.
Thanks

The Sportsmans is technically in Camp Hill I believe. At the intersection of the 581 and the 15.

https://www.sportsmans.com/shooting...140gr-psp-rifle-ammo-20-rounds/p/1681094

Here is the address

Sportsman's Warehouse Camp Hill No. 607
3500 Capital City Mall Drive
Camp Hill, PA

I know it says out of stock, but there were 10+ boxes of the stuff there Tuesday morning. I highly doubt it got scooped up.

Thanks. That used to be Field and Stream, I think.
Maybe get up there over the weekend.
There is a Sportsman Warehouse at exit 20 on I-81. It's closer, might check there.

The Sportsman's Warehouse in Federal Way, WA has had 12-15 boxes of Remington 7x64 ammo on the shelf for a couple of months now.

My bud the manager also mentioned the growing pile of 6.8 Western ammo on the self. They started out offering a box with every new Browning/Winchester rifle sold. The pile kept growing, so now they're offering 2 boxes with each rifle sold.

It's not looking good....

I saw that as well! A bunch of 6.8 Western. While not a huge deal it seems like it’d be right in line with everything else. A 175 at 2850 or 165 mid 2900’s in an easy shooting rifle. Oh well, can’t win them all I guess.

I turned a 30-06 into a 6.5-06 last year, and these were perfect to neck down, trim, load and fireform. Easy, Peasy!

Same here at the wasilla store they have a bunch of it. Didn’t ruger do a run of the 7x64 years ago?

Not sure. But the right rifle would be enough to try one.

Ruger made 252 of them.
