How hard would it be to form .358 Win. brass from.308 Win cases. The reason I ask is I can't find any 358 brass on the internet or anywhere else . I can't even find any cartridges(you know , ones already loaded :) ). It seems to me it shouldnt be a problem, but I know that Drop or Lever could give me the details on this one. The one thing about it is I can find the dies but not the brass. The sights the carry the brass are all out of stock.

I don't think necking up is hard, my only experience doing so with bottlenecked cartridges was when we shot the 30-338 Weatherby back when it was a wildcat. Since the .358 is merely a necked up 308 it should be a simple and easy operation. I believe I saw that Hornady's New Dimension dies will neck up the .308s under normal operation. These are what I'm curently looking at.

I was in the Sportsman's Warehouse in Minneapolis (actually **** Rapids) and St. Cloud, MN and they both had unfired .358 brass in stock. Price was $18/50 with both stores having 3-4 bags each. I plan on forming my own from .308s which ran $10.50 a bag and once fired is about that per 50. I reload on aprogressive press so I like to run off at least a couple hundred rounds at a time to make it worth my while. If I used a single stage and did up to 100 at a time, then buying preformed brass would not be much of an additional cost.
