I don't know where Hydesville is but if it's anywhere near Oroville I'd drive over and talk to Fred or Buzz Huntington. Or phone them. If they can't help you or give you some leads then you're in big trouble.

While expensive, I would agree with Ray. You can make the brass from .30-06 with the proper dies. I didn't check, but I'd bet good money you will find Huntington Die Specialties (RCBS) already offers tooling for this. Good luck!

If you just want a case with a bullet I can help you with that, if you want quantitys of brass It must be ways to order this in US? It is a lot cheaper to use 8x57 dies backed out.

Thanks guys. I have 40 something pieces of brass but would like some new as well and the correct dies.
Huntington will do so on special order, just hoped someone had something on hand.

Frank,

You can buy new RWS 8x60mm brass from Natchess Shooters Supply, the brass is in stock as I write this. I have been buying it from them over the past couple of years. They are usually less expensive than Huntington, and they give good service too. Natchess stocks most RWS brass, I just wish they would stock RWS bullets too.
Oh, is your 8x60 a .318 or a .323 bore? Makes a very serious difference, and you will need the smaller dies from Huntington. I have been using 0318 bullets from Woodleigh, Norma, S&B, and RWS.

Thanks for the extra info. apparently the magnum is a little longer and I can get by with a shim. I am thinking that the brass will flow to fit once I put some together. 8x60 3.23
