I find it necessary to make a list here on the Home Page of new additions, postings, and updates to the B&M Site so that you do not need to hunt, and search for everything added.
Currently there are over 75 pages listed, and far too much for one to search out new information added. New additions, posts, photos and other information added can be found on the links below. Thank you for your visit.
B&M Head Stamped Brass
We have struggled for years in our attempts to procure properly head stamped B&M brass. We have not been successful in our attempts. Due to this, I had given up all hope of being able to obtain brass not just with the proper head stamps for the various B&M Cartridges, but it also has to work properly, holding pressure, have the correct dimensions and live up to B&M Standards!
Recently however this might all change. I learned about a company that might be able to bring us not only properly head stamped brass, but brass that will live up to all B&M Specifications. Roberson Cartridge Company, or RCC Brass. Owner is Jeff Roberson, and from our conversation it seems to me that RCC will be able to provide us brass that is going to meet our expectations.
To get it right I will be sending samples of all the B&M Cartridges, from these samples Jeff will be able to copy specifications exactly. I will be having him make a run of every single B&M Cartridge we have. Once I receive those we will start extensive testing to get pressures and data from the new brass. Once the brass is approved Jeff will be able to start taking orders.
I am working with Jeff to get all B&M Owners a discount, and hoping to get something along the lines of 20% off of advertised retail. RCC has all the B&M's listed on their website currently, but the specs come from various sources. I want to lock those specs down solid and have test data before B&M orders can be filled. I will be working on this in the coming weeks, and as I complete data and pressures, I will get this information to Jeff and lock specs up for each cartridge as we progress. I will also post that data here and update as we move forward with the project. Hopefully within 6-8 weeks this can be completed, that is our goal.
We are very excited about this project.

In addition we find in the 2017 Big Book of Ballistics, by Phillip Massaro that Phillip was kind enough to include a section in the book that we discussed at length with him, concerning the Cutting Edge Bullets, BBW#13 designs. Something of note. I also found the book to be very well done, and just full of brand new ideas, things like Raptors! If you have not seen this book, find it on Amazon, it is a worthy addition to your reference books, and I believe you will be very pleased with it. Below please find our small contribution to the book.....................
