He's saving you the time and effort of making your own 300 Whisper/Blackout brass. You would normally have to get/buy 5.56/.223 brass, cut the neck off, size, trim to the proper length, deburr the case mouth, and swage out the primer pocket crimp (from military brass). Basically it's your labor or you pay him for his labor. In my case, I'm retired and slowly go about forming my own, but at this price, I sure am tempted.
You would need to buy Blackout/Whisper/Whatever dies to load the brass the first time (to properly hold the brass while seating the bullet since the brass is shorter than .223 brass) and to resize the fired brass after that for reloading.
