I prepared a report about Winchester rifle brass calibers and their avalability. This can range from currently in hands of suppliers ready to ship if my supplies run low, they are listed as“available”. Available usually means always available so generally I do not break the bank on these and filling large orders is retaliative easy task. Examples are 30-06 Springfield, 270 Winchester, 30-30, 223 Remington and all the rest what the industry considers common calibers.
“On hand, limited quantities” refers to stock on hand and once sold out may be a while before I can restock. Winchester appears to make periodic production runs that may take three to six months to fill. “Old stock on hand”, this is calibers I managed to find, quantities are limited to supplies on hand and in all likely hood there will be no replacements because this is packaged in vintage Winchester-Western 20 piece boxes and are twenty years or longer when last made so there is not large amounts around to find. Finding them in virgin brass is even rarer.
25-20 W.C.F., 30-40 Krag, 32-40 Winchester, 348 Winchester, 358 Winchester, 35 Remington and 375 Winchester was originally considered to be never again. This in turn is not completely accurate.

30 Remington, 32 Remington, 300 H&H Magnum and the 375 H&H Magnum are no longer listed in Winchester’s catalog. Look for Norma 300 H&H Mag.(click to view) , currently on special pricing of $52.50 a bag of 50. The 375 H&H (click to view) is currently available in Remington.
As of the time of this article the 458 Winchester has not been produced yet and holding on to hopes of seeing more Norma at competitive pricing.
