Does anyone know of companies that buy used brass? Where I shoot is just an open "range" in the woods and nobody picks up after themselves. Its very frustrating but I was thinking that I might be able to pick up everyone else's brass that they leave behind and sell it to someone that could reuse it. I already have piles of .223 and .308 from my own shooting that I don't know what to do with, and I could easily collect huge piles of brass from there in one day.

These answers pretty much cover your question.
Add to this, now that the Army (military?) is no longer required to destroy spent ammo, there will probably be even more for sale.
If nothing else, it would seem recycling it would be a worthy effort.
Who owns the land? do you know it is free for the taking?

Thanks for the link. AFAIK the state owns the land, I guess I should call fish and game or somebody before I go up there with a garbage bag. I hadn't thought about that.

I'm sure the state (and others) will appreciate your cleaning up. .223 and .308 is fairly common brass, so there's no big demand for it. Perhaps you can find some gun club or local reloader who's interested in some. The public range here collects it and quarterly sells barrels full of brass to the recycler.
