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.

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.

Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out.

General education should not be mere training of the hands to work, but training of the mind to properly reason. http://www.welltrainedmind.com/classed.php

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