Default I have 25 pieces of 7.5 x 55 swiss

I have 26 pieces of 7.5 Swiss brass and I'm not sure if I should keep them or sell them for scrap? Any ideas?

Look at the brass trader thread in the ammunition and reloading section, if you hand load I'm sure you could make a trade for something you want.

Depends on the country of origin. Swiss GP11 is berdan primed, so not many could reload it. If it is commercial brass, the shipping would be more then the brass is worth.

You can shine a light in the shells and see if you see two flash holes. If so, it is Berdan primed. If there is a single hole it will be better for reloading.

Unless it is reloadable and you reload, Buck, it is rather worthless.

Ya I kinda figured it be worthless just wasn't sure. Found it lying at the range the other day so I picked it up. Was gonna just throw it in with all the rim fire to sell for scrap but wanted to make sure I wasn't tossing something valuable away

Check the headstamp. If someone was dumb enough to leave Norma brass behind, it may be worth a look. Even Prvi(nny) would go for .35 a case.

Ok so it's prvi according to the headstamp. Anyone interested? I have no use for it. Maybe trade or something idk. Just hate to scrap it if someone has a use for it
