It's one of the more obscure cartridges, but it's still out there in limited amounts. I had some die sets, but they went fast.
Not even listed on gun-deals.com.
Three offerings on ammoengine:

Good luck.

Actually, the brass is somewhat readily available and not that out of range. Cabela's lists 500 pieces of R-P 221 Fireball for $190.99. Nothing in the 100 piece packaging.
Grafs: $44 per 100 (R-P)

If you're in the market for 221 still, a few weeks back there was some once-fired bagged up at Foster Bear Arms, RI.
Plenty of die sets at most sportsman tag sales, too.

There is 22 Rem CFM brass there, too (73 pcs for $6), as of Friday, 14 May. I'm guessing that this is 22 Rem Jet Magnum...?
