went threw all my brass this past week on my RCBS single stage de-capping and resizing, finally got done and filled up a large box with it all. weighed it real quick and came up with just over 50lbs todal, about how many pieces are in there? don't want to go threw it all and i figure a few people here will know off the top of their head. thanks
I did love my job, working hard is what K9s do…. I was born for it, I lived for it, and died for it; for my country….but mostly for you.

62gr - 25.0gr of H-335
55gr - 26.0gr of H-335

7000 grains to a pound.

~275 rounds per pound

3,900 cases to reload = 14+ lbs of H-335

Wc844 = $85 / 8lbs

I haven't ordered any from them, but I read somewhere they will pay the hazmat if you order 4 kegs our more. You could load those cases twice and then some.

the word you want is "through"

"threw" means you have completed the act of throwing something, like a baseball.

And ..... that's enough of that.

We will give MRW some slack, he's a teacher and succumbed to his natural reaction.

The question was answered. Everyone can find a list of case weights in the Resources at the top of the forum.
