I guess if you don’t reload, it’s better than nothing. If you do reload, much more valuable to hold on to!!

Is this a no derail thread? I have some brass, I don’t reload so I usually give it away.

A few years back I give a friend two pretty good sized boxes of machine gun brass, was mostly 30-06 and 8mm. there was a lot of 223 too. he was excited. don’t know why he didn’t have a 30-06 or an 8mm. he did have an m-16.

I got buckets of brass and copper sitting and waiting. Not cashing out with these prices!

Agree, got about 1k lb #2 copper setting down the shop. It’s not in the way, might as well sit on it a bit

I got a bunch of wire to strip still. I seen a guy on YouTube take a flaring tool that has multiple size holes in it stick a razor blade in it and tighten it down. Then you feed the wire thru and pull it and it puts a nice cut down it. The you just peel the coating off and boom precious copper! But now that prices are trash the pile has sat lol

Yessir, I’ve never had to buy brass, with all the folks who don’t reload themselves, there’s plenty laying around at every range I’ve been to.
Many Thanks to all those who don’t reload.

I save all spent brass and any laying around with range permission, it adds up quick and helps offset ammo repurchase costs.

I used to swap my extra brass and range pick up like 40 sw, with Freedom Munitions for fresh ammo, now there is a company called Capital Cartridge at the same address that pays $1.40 a pound right now.
