    Non reloaders

    Just a thought - and depending on what you do with your brass.

    I am not sure how many here reload, I know I do and Bud and a few others but - if you collect your empties then maybe see if anyone here wants to buy them at a modest price. I know shipping can be a downside of course.

    I have about enough right now but - just thought this might (or might not!) be useful to consider.

    Input? Worth bothering? Maybe not.

    Does anybody want my WWB 9mm brass?

    Actually a good idea, especially for those that shoot .45acp.

    9mm may not be as desirable but certainly .45acp just might.

    All depends whether it's worth the trouble for both parties I reckon. I have always been a brass packrat and get laughed at at the range - but somehow hate the stuff being trashed.

    Maybe best if any reloaders post and say what they might be wanting - that'd work best. I know Bud would love to have some empty 500 cases LOL!

    I'd be glad to contribute - but my better half and I shoot at an indoor range and they sell 'em.

    Yep - realize R&G that this is not uncommon - so might limit the potential just to the folks who shoot at home or outdoor ranges, where they have to police their own brass.

    It's only a thought anyways - may not be practical enough.

    For me, if it was worth the time to pick 'em up, I'd reload them. Color me lazy. ;0

    I am a range trash can picker also. I have some(allot) of brass that I don't have a weapon chambered in. For example,I have about 500rds. of .500 and .460 S&W brass that I don't even have a weapon for. I can't find anyone that wants it. I also have most calibers that are common but I kull my brass by mfg. or in the case of MIL brass,the plant that it's made at.

    I have a bunch of .30-'06 that I don't own a weapon for. Same for .22-250 and a couple of the Ackley Improved chamberings. I have a gazillion pieces of .38 Special brass,but so does everybody else. Same for the .308. I reload for the .308 but have more brass than I could ever reload in a lifetime.

    Same for Win "AA" hulls. Anybody need any of them. I got a "few" of those from "your uncle". Also "WAA12" wads. Got a "few" of those also.

    Seems that we could share some stuff. We all got reloading stuff that we're not using,and we'll never find the need of.

    Great idea,P95

    OBTW....... was just kiddin' ref the .460 and 500 brass. ---------

    I mostly shoot at an indoor range where I have to use their ammo, but I will keep it in mind as the weather gets warmer and I start shooting outdoors, again.
