Not sure if this helps you but Unknown has Norma 300 WSM brass in stock. https://www.unknownmunitions.com/product/norma-brass/

I have been religiously looking for the Hornady 300 wsm brass for 18 months with absolutely no luck.  You can randomly find it on gunbroker for a premium.....3-4 times what it should sell for. 

On another note......We have two Savage 300 wsm's and both shoot Hornady brass.  Because hornady has been in such short supply I was going to switch to Nosler.  I worked up the same load and much to my surprise, it shot the exact same as hornady.  POI, velocity...everything was the exact same.  Nosler brass has been more available. 

Hope you find some....and if you find a lot of it, PM me so I buy some too.

Whatís the appeal of Hornady brass, case volume? Iíve always avoided it in favor of Norma or better (one less variable)

I would rank the newer Hornady Brass on par with Nosler Brass.  I personally do not like Norma at all due to how soft it is.  I would say that Hornady and Nosler are mid range brass that is affordable and overall very nice brass.  If I wanted to step up to a top of the line brass I would look at Lapua, Peterson, ADG, etc. 

Specific to my 300wsm, it is what I had so I tried loading it and it loves it.  I am on the 4th or 5th loading and it is still going strong.  I anneal my brass every firing which helps a ton.  Using this brass, my two 300wsm's are half MOA factory rifles.....Savages non the less.   :tup: :tup: 

I'm not sure there is any more case capacity...or at least not enough to be the deciding factor.  Just good solid brass that is affordable when you can find it.   :chuckle: :chuckle:

From my experience Norma brass is the best there is for the 300WSM. Iím on the 10th firing on mine and still holding low 20 ES. But good luck on your search.

Like said above my 300wsm likes hornady Iíve tried other and not the same consistency. Have not tried the Norma but at this point not sure I want to re-sight in or change out what I know works but then again the Hornady supply is not there
