    I have started reloading now and usually on sunday night the g/f and I will go to the local shooting spot and pick up spent casings. I am starting to get brass I dont own firearms for like 44mag 7mm 454 ect. I had intentions of saving it for scrap or cleaning and depriming then listing on ebay, then I had the idea of a brass swap thread for reloaders who have brass they dont need or just want to offer to others on the forum..

    Anyone else think this would be a good idea ??

    This is a great idea.

    I've got some spent brass (not a lot) but hate to pitch it.

    Not to tout my OCD behavior but I like to load all my mag loads (357 & 44) in nickel and standard (38 & 44 spl) in brass. This is not so much an anal activity as it is a safety visual-aid for these old eyes. This results in the off-finish cases being orphaned to some rubbermaid container under my bench.

    We should set up a "Brass Trader" thread and see what shakes out.

    I have no issue with keeping this among our selves, But there is a great site for trading brass and other assorted items, I have dealt with them on and off for over a year now, But like anything buyer/trader beware

    Ammo Brass Trader Forums - All Discussions

    Good luck with whatever comes of this, I will trade as I go anyhow, I knowI have at least 150+ .45acp brass that I dont reload, Just sitting around.

    I like the idea of keeping it among the FTF members. There are 26k + members here where as that trader forum is a mere 4k.

    Plus I like the idea of helping out people you know.

    I am going to start sorting tonight and see what I have that I wont use. If I have brass laying around that doesnt got to my guns I will have to go out and buy a gun in that caliber :p

    While I agree with the numbers, However, How many reload here as to how many reload there, They trade in reloading
    Agreed.
    Best of luck, I would be interested in what you have sorted out. :cool:
