Default Price of Brass

I'm wondering what the prices on once fired brass would be around.

I'm about to go out shooting...and I'm not a reloader so I'm thinking about selling off the 100 Rounds I'm going to fire.

80 Will be Winchester Brass from 45 Grain Hollow points that were bought because of a big pack.

And then 10 of it will be Black Hills Hollow Points 75 Grain....and then the remaining 10 will be Lelliar and Bellot 55 Grain bullets.

It all looks like brass to me...but Hell I could be wrong. I'm a noob when it comes to these things.

Anyway what would be the suggested price for what I'm saving up if I'm going to sell off the brass to well purchase more ammo from.

.06 - .09 per round for once fired .223/5.56 brass here in Denver.

So roughly around 10 bucks would be a fair price I guess...and with shipping probably 11-12 bucks.

Market prices would be for cleaned, deprimed cases. You probably won't get that. I save my brass I don't reload for a long time. I've sold 1000 pieces at one time, and I sell cheap. Not cleaned and not deprimed, and use USPS flat rate shipping boxes. $4-$5 per hundred depending. Just a word of advice.....save up 500 or more to make it more worthwhile for you and the buyer. I don't think many would pay $10 for 100 pieces of once fired/picked up at the range .223. I could be wrong though. It depends.

Default RamRod is Correct

For pistol brass, I never buy fewer than 1000 in .44-45. Brass is usually shipped in the USPS flat rate box for just under $10. There is no way I'd buy used brass and have shipping be more than 10% of the total in shipping.

In the smaller calibers, it's worse. Since every Law Enforcement pro on the planet (so it seems) shoots .40, there are TONS of it on the market, so the prices are way down. The last time I bought some .45 once-fired brass online, the seller threw in (for FREE) 1,000 .40 empties as a bonus.

When you get to 9mm, the brass is so useless I don't even pay a penny apiece anymore. I don't even bother to pick up my 9mm brass for reloading anymore, because I can get once fired brass from the local police range simply for picking it up.

Sorry....

I usually just save them up until I have 500-1000. By that time, I've found someone who reloads and mail them out for the cost of shipping. I've sent 2 different forum members spent .45 ACP.

I shoot on public lands. I police my brass to keep public lands clean. I don't reload, so the brass isn't worth much to me.
