LOL

32,710 pounds of Fired Brass!

I can afford to buy it.

I just can't afford to move it or store it or figure out what to do with it.

That would be a good price if it also included free shipping.

That's a couple truckloads of brass. Maybe you could borrow some money to have it moved to a scrap place and sell it to them, and take the net gain and go buy some new ammo.

I am pretty sure you have to put a $25,000 bond down before you can even place a bid and the brass is not to be used for ordinance, recycling only. There is an "End-Use-Agreement" box in there, I think that is where all the fine print is. My friend actually went through all the hassle of registering and bidding and the brass went for like $2.00/lb and market was about $0.65/lb

do I smell a group buy?

You just had to post this didn't you. I've been waiting weeks for the bidding to start. Though, I'm not reloading.

And by the way, $50 is the minimum bid. It will go for thousands.

That is 16 TONS[ of brass. To put that into perspective, 8 Honda CRXs or 5 Mercedes Benzs.

Do people buy it, slag it, and sell it on the "brass" market. I don't know what else they make out of brass besides shell casings, light fixtures, and statues.


ETA: Does anyone know how much those ammo cans go for? I saw a lot of 40 40mm cans and was thinking of picking it up.
