I recently got a 218 bee from my grandfather that passed away, so i went to look for some ammo and couldnt believe the price. $59.99 for 50 rounds. That is ridiculous. Wondering if anyone knows of a place i can get some ammo, brass, loads that have worked well, etc. I have the dies and reloading equiptment but just need the brass and some specifics on loads. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks lyle

The bee is an awesome cartridge worth the time to reload for. You can buy brass from mid south, midway, sinclair pretty much anywhere probably looking @ 30 -35 bucks a hundred though....

For loads try

I spoke with a gentlman @ Sinclair about some case neck problems with my 22 Hornet. His 218 had similar problems. Having to due with a case neck thickness of .005 will sometimes give you grief.

I'm launching 33GR Speer HP with my K- hornet. You might find similar happyness with the same pill. 3200FPS don't suck.

BBF,

I sent you an email through this site, but got no response, so I don't know if you received it or not. Either way, I guess I can put the data here. I hope I am not breaking any copyright laws. I have some really old Sierra and Hodgdon books with data for the 218 Bee. You can also find info for reloading on the Hodgdon web site.
