    I'll check Buffalo Arms thanks Musket Man.

    Hey CC, when u get a chance can u let me know where u found the dies and hopefully some brass for sale. I found lots of information on line on how to make the brass and good load formulas, but it sounds like a big pain in the butt to make the brass from raw .348 Win brass (gotta trim the rim and cut a groove with a lathe, Arg!). So hoping I can find a company or someone that already has some brass for sale. I called Custom brass and bullets Co. yesterday and they told me they might be able to make some brass for me, but still waiting for a price quote from them. It doesn't sound like its going to be cheap.....

    I just looked on line again and can't find the site. I think it was a UK site in England as they are more popular over there. I look some more. Buffalo Arms is a good place to start. Call RCBS and ask them, they make almost any die, but might be a bit pricey.

    I saw some 4D dies when I googled it but they were over seas somewhere too but you might call 4D (formerly CH tool&die). Old Western Scrounger might have something too. You might want to call Buffalo and talk to them. If they dont have anything they should atleast have some ideas for you. Their main focus is obsolete calibers. I have dealt with them a few times and they been real good.

    This article has alot of good info too!

    Thanks for posting that article Musket Man, I already had printed it out and studied it for the past week...lol Here is a picture of the rifle. Its a Roy Gradle Custom. I love the wood on this rifle, they just don't make them like this anymore. It's built on a Mauser 98 action.
