Default Selling Spent Brass

I come across quite a bit of spent .40 caliber brass throughout the year. I know it can be sold as scrap brass but, with all the hysteria surround ammo these days, I wondered if anyone knew of someone (business) that buys brass to reload.

Thanks

You buy ammo, send your brass back and they give you a credit towards your purchase. Only place I know of.

I have bought a lot of once shot spent brass in .338 lapua. Pistol ammo not so much but I would save it. You will get way more selling it to a reloaded than just for $/Lb

people buy once fired pistol brass all day long. Put it on "the sniper's hide" website is www.snipershide.com I know guys that are using dillon turret presses and cranking out 9mm and 45acp ammo. I'll ask around if anyone need .40 cal. how much brass are we talking about here?

Right now about 125 - 150 pounds worth. Not sure what that translates into number of pieces. Thanks for all the info.

put it on sniper's hide. Check around for what brass goes for on the market OR have them make you a reasonable offer. It'll be gone within a week.

after scouring the net everyone seems to be charging/paying $50/1000. I don't know what that equates to in weight, but its a start.
