Assume it is Norma that will release the brass as they seem to be the only ones doing loaded for it, does Norma load all the blaser ammunition as well ?
I guess so. I have understood this caliber is cooperation between Norma and Blaser.

Answered my.own question and found some Norma 8,5x55 brass online, not in stock yet but €139 for 50 pieces, will contact the local distributor and see if I can order it here

Contacted Bruce Bertram over the weekend and he will be doing another run of 8.5x55 brass soon as he also did the first run for blaser. $250aud /100

That's a big tick for Bertam. Obviously no quality issues with their brass in this calibre if Blaser are buying from them.

I wonder if he'll ship to the UK? with the import/export difficulties of Brexit still settling down, trying to get anything from Europe is proving tricky!
do you have contact details for him?

I got my brass today from my local store.
If there had been it on the shelf, I would have bought a big package ... time to reload.
