I have read of successful fire forming 22-250 brass, maybe a google search could get you going, Pretty sure 22-250 brass is somewhat available. You may need to buy factory 250 Savage ammo it may be your only route in these crazy times. Good luck!

Yepp. .250-3000 is obsolete and hard to find brass for. But its as simple as running .22-250 brass into a .250-3000 die to get usable brass. for that matter you cold also use commonly available .243 brass or .308 brass..

I personally would opt for milspec 7.62X51 nato brass because it doesnt have a caliber designation on the headstamp so you can minimize ammo confusion.

I answered in your other thread, but I'll post up down here too.

Both Winchester and Remington still have one factory load for the .250 Savage in the catalog. Winchester also has brass but it's a seasonal run item and quantities are low.

Necking up .22-250 brass is also a very good suggestion since the .250 is the parent case for the .22-250.

.250-3000 brass is listed as new component in the MIDWAY catalog. Probably not alot of demand for it, so there's a good chance they have some in stock.

Fortunately I still have a good supply of brass -
I obtained a set of sizing dies to make 250 from 06 base brass - Most 06 base brass is suitable - some better than others.
My few test cases, 06 to 250 have proved to be somewhat time consuming. But, of course, this is better than no brass.
I do prefer to squish and neck ream over the stretching 22 to 25 --
