First of all, Welcome, from your neighbor state to the south! Drop into the intro section when you get the chance.

Second, I would throw 'em out. Not worth the time/effort, you'd kinda look funny too. I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I'd just toss 'em.

Are you a mod? If you are would you delete this thread. I have thought about it and that does sound stupid. I would look jacked up.

Default It seems like....

Seems like I have heard of people using the .22 RF brass to make jackets for cast lead bullets. I can't remember what equipment was needed but if it is possible it might be something to look into the way things are going.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

You have more time than money? I think this quailfies as 'something':

I think most just sell the brass. It's a $1 something a pound. The club I'm in tosses them into a 5 gal. bucket and uses the $ to buy more .22lr.

Maybe it's only good for people who have BOTH time and money.
