    It turns out that nobody has ever inquired about relieving them of some of that brass.

    I didn't inquire about handgun brass, just 5.56.

    They're being nice enough to give me some but not unlimited supply, obviously. I'm going to work out a deal for bigger supply in exchange for me returning recycled brass at the end of its usable life to them.

    (Note, my AR is still in pieces, sans a lower, in a box at home. :mamoru:)

    If they were giving me whole 55 gal drums full of brass, then I'd hook WMD up. However I'm really just being allowed a small personal supply, but completely free (free trays too). :hs:

    Thanks :bigthumb:

    surplusammo.com has pulled bullets from time to time, at around 50 bucks 1000 and it goes down as you order more.

    Well, someone on THR was kind enough to figure out how much brass per lb there is for .223 and came up with 73.5 cases/lb.

    If I go back and buy this stuff from them at the same price they're selling it to the recycler for ($0.89/lb), I could get 10k cases for about $121.

    Sweeeeet... :big grin:

    I do. We contract our security force and they have a range down by our adjoining hydro station where they train and qualify. I just found out that the county cops come to our range as well, so I think I know where I'll be getting some handgun brass as well.
