Do you mean 4-6 thousand pieces? 4-600 is not that much. Shipping would probably cost more than its worth.
As above, so below.

google once fired 45 brass and see what its going for

Im saving all my 223 and 9mm for when I start to reload, or Ill just sell it.
But I know I can get about $35/k for 9mm and about $65/k for 223/5.56

I pick up all the 45ACP brass I can find at the local range and give it to a friend, as I don't own anything in 45ACP. I usually get about 100 pieces of brass per visit to the range.

Maybe you should look around at your range.

About .05 each. Ship it in a flat rate USPS box. I got 2000 45 brass in a medium flat rate box.

I am a big time cheap bastard and never miss the chance to pick up brass.
Several times I have considered blowing out some of my excess for some extra cash.
Lots of the guys at my club do this and I believe it causes some hurt feelings and some serious competition.

I steer clear of the buying and selling , trade a bit but mostly give my extra away to guys I know are reloading for themselves.
I believe I do better than the guys who sell as I get favors and great deals fron the guys who have got brass from me .

5 or 600 pieces of 45acp is no big thing, toss them in a zip loc and hang on to them untill you find a use

3-5 cents each. Lower end of the scale if it's mixed headstamps, higher end if it's all the same.

That's exactly what I do. A big bag of brass usually pays for work I need done to my daughter's Argentine Hi-Power...

About a nickel apiece is average, assuming it is clean, once fired and not of the small primer variety. I recently liquidated my hoard of brass and found the common pistol calibers hard to move at anything more than giveaway prices. With the price of scrap brass being what it is locally, it's not worth the time to sort the range pickup brass I get other than to pick out the calibers I reload. Everything else just goes into the scrap bucket. USPS flat rate shipping is the way to go. I think I got 250 pcs.. of .45 ACP brass into a small flat rate box. Shipped 500 pcs. in two small flat rate boxes for less than one medium FR box...
