My 9y.o. son is making a cartridge display as a state fair entry for Cub Scouts. He has several calibers already, but he wants as many as possible. If anyone has an empty case or two that they would be willing to part with in traditional calibers (.30-06, .260, 9mmMak, etc.) and different variants (Grendel, 300Whisper, WSSM, .458SOCOM, .338Lapua, etc.), my son would be very excited and grateful. Just post here what you would be willing to donate (we're only looking for one case in each caliber), and I will IM/email you.

Here is a list of what he has already or is being sent by some other folks:

I can contribute

30-06, 30-30, 35 Remington, 35 Whelen, and 7mm STW. I can send 2 each



Edit:

I knew picking brass up at the range as a kid would pay off someday.

Also I can add: 221 Rem, 25-06 Rem, 358 Win, and 6.5 x 55. Unfortunately these are individual.
Link Posted: 6/16/2008 6:19:47 PM EDT
I can do .45-70 and .45 Colt.

If I can find one of my .338 Win Mag cases I'll send that along also.

Thats all I can think of that I don't remember being on your list.

I have a gun called a 9mm flobert. It's a 9mm rimfire shotgun. It has solid brass casings not plastic.

Let me know and whenever I get home I'll check the safe and add anyhting I forgot about.

ETA crossed out the ones that were on the list. What about .22 shorts?

Loonybin,

Why did you post this in the Deer Hunting Forum. Try posting it in the Reloading Forum and you probably would get more responses.

BTW, I mailed the envelope to your son today. If Child Protective Services takes him away because of his dangerous display, I hope they don't take me away for "aiding and abetting" in the corruption of youth.

Um... yeah. That would probably be a good idea

If that's corruption, then I'll be put away for life! Thanks for the cases!

Well, the cases y'all offered are starting to arrive. Michael got back from Scout Camp last night, and was amazed at the number of cases waiting for him. When the rest arrive, we should have enough cases that we will be able to split the display into two because my 8y.o. son wanted to do one as well (we just didn't have enough variety at the time). Now both boys will be able to make one! Michael will do a rifle case display, and Brendan will do a handgun/shotgun display.

The boys got back from the grandparents' house today. Here are a couple of pics of them sorting through the brass. This is about 2/3 to 3/4 of what we have! You all have been so generous!
