In years past some casing manufacturers sold straight tubes like these, that they called “BASIC BRASS.” Peterson refers to its BASIC BRASS casings as Wildcat Tubes.
Each Peterson Wildcat Tube starts with the same brass raw material as other Peterson rifle casings. We process them using the same draw tooling. The headstamp is blank, except for Peterson’s “P” inside a Keystone (a nod to the fact that we are located in Pittsburgh, PA; and PA is the Keystone State.)
We then insert the flash hole into the primer pocket. And finally we anneal what will become your mouth, neck and shoulder portion, to make necking-down easier for you.
Dave Kiff at Pacific Tool and Gauge has designed tooling packs for you to finish the Wildcat Tube into the caliber of your choosing. The PT&G tool pack includes:

Warning: Only use Peterson Cartridge Co. casings in firearms in good condition, designed, marked, and chambered for this cartridge. Do not use Peterson Cartridge Co casings for “fire forming” or any other purpose other than what they were designed and tested for. Peterson retains no responsibility for the enclosed casings if they are used outside of the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Unlike most of its competitors, Peterson Cartridge has devoted its entire facility, machinery, and laboratory to producing only brass rifle casings. Specialization is the driving principle behind Peterson Cartridge only producing one component of a multi-component finished product.
In our mind, if you want precision projectiles, purchase them from a company that specializes in projectiles. If you want consistent propellant and primers, purchase them from a company that specializes in propellant and primers. And if you want extremely precise and consistent brass rifle casings, purchase them from us, Peterson Cartridge.
Peterson Cartridge is dedicated to producing the best casings for long-distance shooters.
Founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by Derek Peterson and his two business partners, Peterson Cartridge was built with one main goal. That goal is to produce extremely consistent, American-Made brass rifle casings which are designed around, and for, long-distance shooters
