    How much is .38 Spcl and .357 Mag once-fired factory brass worth?

    I was thinking about learning how to reload, but I'm not so sure if I will take the plunge.

    In the mean time I've been saving factory brass - Remington, Mag Tech, SB, whatever.

    I have maybe 3000 once fired .38 spcl and 1000 once fired .357... what do you think is a fair value for this?

    I would go to Midway, or Natchez and look it up and see what they are/were selling it for.

    Before this panic my limit was .04 cents, brass is higher now than it has been in a longtime. If you want to part with some of the 357 I'd take 500. Read a lot about reloading, it is very rewarding and a good hobby. Read some of the thread on various forums. There is a vast amount of knowledge shared out there.

    $40/K for the Specials and $50/K for the Magnums. That's my personal limit.

    I have a secret source for used brass. I pay 5 cents each. I get mine from a custom gun builder that has a guy hired to do nothing but shoot for testing purposes.

    I'm in the .05 each limit,If you shoot a lot you may consider just saving it until the panic subsides and reloading equipment becomes available.Then get either a single stage or progressive reloading setup and even bullet casting equipment to cast 38/357 bullets,stock up on some powder and primers and never worry about running out of ammo when the shelves go bare again
