    I`m curious what shooters that don`t reload do with there rifle brass..please tell me your not throwing it in the trash or in the brass bucket at the range..
    Keep that stuff and someone here on the forum will gladly take it off your hands, myself I`d gladly pay S&H for some 30-30 or 30-06 brass. I`ll bet no matter what caliber you shoot someone here reloads it and wants your brass..Perhaps we need a brass bucket on the forum..You post your brass and I bet it won`t last long..Think of it as recyclyng :rolleyes:

    Totally agree with this. Save it someone will want it. At the HP site we have a brass trading thread. It isn't worth much, but if you have enough lots of folks will make a niffty little trade for it.;) Nearly all of the brass I've been loading and shooting for several years I got in trades, or picked up off the ground. When I have to buy new brass that screws up my cost per round calculations, and I don't like that.:D

    I know that they are in high demand - but I could use some 45 L.C. Brass.
    Wishful thinking on my part.
    I traded for a NEF SB1 Survivor yesterday. It's a 410/45LC.

    At the club personally shoot at, rifle brass disappears almost after hitting the ground ! Only exception is 5.56/.223... It's not that those who don't reload won't give it to you it's because there are enough "Brass Rats" that one has to be there when it's actually fired to ask for it. There are some that won't give it up even when it's obvious they're simply hoarding it with no real intention of doing Anything with it. They're the ones who also buy up as much ammo as they can for the same reason - Hoarding ! :rolleyes:

    I save all of my brass...even the rimfire.

    It will become a scarce commodity real soon...

    I also save my RF brass.. Kinda half being because I always like to clean up after my self, and half because... well I have a scrap bucket also, and being I save my normal brass for reloading, the scrap bucket is kinda lonesome....

    At my range, there's a guy that cleans it up for a living. We are only allowed to pick up what we shoot.
