I have lots of it and was wondering that since you cannot get any new brass anywhere but it's usually around $30+ per 50 rounds, how much could I sell 1000 rounds of once fired Lake City Brass for? If im in the wrong area, please move my thread. Sorry

wrong area and its going for 150 per k on gunbroker and its selling every time it comes up.

Check the EE or gunbroker to see what brass is selling for. Personally, $80/K would be my max, but I have enough for now......

thanks guys. Needed a quick answer

I just paid $150 for 1250+ mixed mil once fired (LC, WCC, PMC). I wasn't happy about it but I needed to top off my reloading bin. That Is my limit in this panic state.

It was $20 per 100 for new virgin lake city not that long ago. When the heck did it become $30 per 50?? Is that panic pricing?

These prices suck I was going to order a 55 gallon drum but they want $4200 that's $105 per 1000 this sucks

lol...so that really is highjacking....ok will do, my apologies everyone.

Trimmed, cleaned, primed .223 brass is currently going for $241 per 1k. It's just as expensive to load ammo now as it was to buy it three months ago. I have a bad feeling this "panic" is going to stick the prices higher.

Brass is going for 60 per thousand. I will take all the brass you have at that price

really? wow...it's jumped double in just a month glad i'm picking up everything i can find at the range.

I'd be willing to bet next panic will be on hunting gauges...not so much focus on those right now since hunting season is over, problem is if you think about it, all the companies will be geared up for small rifle/pistol to catch up the demand on them (bullets, powder, brass, primers). so......it's not over imo.

The current price of brass makes my head hurt.

sounds like i need to hit the local range EVERY weekend and try to scavenge all the .223 i can find! Of course all our ranges say you can 'collect your own' emphasis on 'own',

If I had only know. I sold several 1000 piece bags of once fired LC from a LEO range last November for $45.00 a 1000 plus shipping. That was good money then because I bought half a barrel at a $1.00 a pound!
Link Posted: 1/22/2013 5:24:17 AM EDT
before the election and shooting it wasn't uncommon to see in the EE around $55/1k for unprocessed. Add $5-10 for processed per k.
Link Posted: 1/22/2013 5:31:57 AM EDT
and to think for the last 8 months I was passing on once fired LC and Fed brass from work. other agencies come and shoot and toss their brass in the barrels.

I was too lazy and content with what I have stashed now.
