I have an opportunity to buy a few thousand pounds of spent brass in 9mm and 7.62. The price is near what scrap goes for about 75 cents a poound. Is there any other value to this such as for reoaders? Could I ask a little more than the scrap rate and offer it to reloaders?

What does a 1000 rounds of spent reloadable brass go for.

Thanks in advance for your input.

loaded 9mm and 7.62 can be purchased so cheaply that reloading is rarely worth it.


As to your question, I think you can find it for sale at eBay, gunbroker, and auction arms.

7.62 nato or x 39?

7.62 might be worth it depending on what type of brass it is personally i wouldn't reload 9mm because the rounds are already so cheap.

if you are into reloading you might want buy it you can never have enough brass!

When you mention 7.62, I guess you're saying 7.62x39mm Russian? If so, better watch out for steel cases mixed in, there is a lot of them made from steel.

The biggest expense or hard work is segregating out the reloadables from non-reloades. There are 9mm NATO cases that is not reloadable, ie berdan primed.

depends on a few things. Do you know what headstamp the brass has? Is it military or commercial? To give you some idea, I buy Winchester brass in 308, and its usually 13 dollars for a 50 round bag. That same bag will go for more on ebay, so I would search there and see what you can find out.

Personally, I reload 9mm because I am so cheap. IIRC, WalMart 9mm is abut 2 cents a round more expenseve than Midway new 9mm brass. Guess where I get my 9mm brass if I need it? I reload it in small lots when there is absolutely nothing else to do or when I want to try a new powder/bullet. I can do it for around 6 cents each. If you decide to reload 9mm, weigh a lb of cases and see how many you can get for 75 cents. Make sure there are no "Amerc" or other some such crap in it. I'm also reloading 50/100 Gold Dots a month for my Hi Power in case the Repubs self destruct.

This is USGI spent brass. I thought they were asking too much. I wouldn't reload 9mm either. I am passing

Thanks all,
