Does anyone know when Winchester or any other companies are going to make a run of 25-20 brass?

Probably about the time .22RF prices drop to what they were a year ago.

If you can find some 32-20 brass it forms easily to 25-20…….

 Yesterday my local Fleet Farm had 32-20 new Winchester brass in 50 count bags. Is that hard to find? T/R

In normal times it seems Winchester makes a run of many of the old “hyphenated” cartridges about once a year. I can’t recall who I’ve bought mine from but it’s a small company and they’re good folks. As I understand it when they make a run of these less popular cartridge cases they have to modify the machine significantly for each cartridge. It’s not feasible to make a small run now and then so they make a large run and when they have enough orders they make another. Quite honestly I have no idea when “normal” times will return. I’ll check my notes when I get home, maybe someone else will remember the seller I’m thinking about.

No time soon, I’d say, considering that the Aguila SV LR I’ve been shooting for several yrs is still SIX TIMES its pre-panic prices.

Yes the 32-20 is much easier to find, and I can resize them to the 25-20, but it just goes against my grain to shoot shells labeled for a different caliber. Every once in a while you can run into some that are 25-30 years old that are factory loaded. Sometimes you can get them reasonable. I have about 250 rounds but would like to have another 200 rounds of brass to reload. I think we can forget starline brass. They have no intention to make any. I would think with the cowboy shooting they would be a good seller.

250 rds & you’re seeking MORE???  Guess that’s not many if you have a .25-20 Gatling Gun.  I was almost thinking I had a box I could afford to part with for someone in dire need, but nix to that.

Well Clarence I do appreciate the offer, and that would have been greatly appreciated but I am not in dire need. I suppose I should elaborate a little on the numbers. I have two very old antique boxes of loaded ammo (100 rounds), that I will never shoot. I also have 3 boxes (150 rounds) of relatively modern ammo that I have been reloading. I am thinking one day those will have reached their limit for reloading, thus the need to start looking for some replacements when they can be found. I am a shooter, and have 2 boys that love to shoot also. I am an antique myself. Just like to be prepared.

The 25-20 is a fun cartridge to shoot.

Nice, I’d expect to pay that for brass today. Saw several 1892’s in 25-20 at Cody. The ones I looked at even had decent bores.

Saw several of varying conditions and I’d characterize most or all as reasonable. I try to avoid buying rifles I don’t already load and cast for so I didn’t look too critically at them, just enjoying the view.
