    There is a gun shop in Connecticut that selles it's once fired brass in 45 only they scrap the rest. $5.00 per 100.

    9mm goes for $35/K shipped.
    40 goes for $40/K shipped.
    45 for some reason goes for $60-80 shipped.

    Lots of people shoot 9mm, .40 is mostly police range stuff so it's readily available, and the .45 varies. Very popular but not as much as 9mm, thus a higher price. I bought .45 brass for $60/K shipped for several years up until a few months ago when I streamlined my handguns and decided to stick with 9mm and 10mm for now.

    Thanks for the website tip. Brass is even hard to come by in Phoenix.
    Be prepared

    $0.00 per 1000. Realistically, one bottle of horse liniment for the back. I pick up plenty of those calibers free at the range.

    When I get the time I can go to a local gun shop/range and sort through their boxes of brass swept up from the range to get exactly what I want for 6 cents each. At gun shows I've found sorted, cleaned brass as cheap as 4 cents each. Happy hunting.

    This is my glock. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    I don't usually buy brass, but last year I did buy 200 once fired 38spl cases at a gun show for $16, IIRC .40 cal was about the same and 9mm a bit cheaper, with .45 costing $20 for $200. I do remember the price of the .45 since I thought about buying some, but then decided I didn't need them. I don't know if these are "market prices", but it seemed fair to me.

    A guy in the local paper hereabouts was selling .45 acp for $5 per hundred a couple weeks back. I called him about some other stuff he had, and he told me he sold about 4500 rounds of .45 acp in one day. It was all that he had. So the demand is definately there, at least at that price. I bought 200 once fired and cleaned 30-06 cases from that him about three weeks back for $20 per hundred.($40).

    The best price of course is free. I worked at the range this weekend and the cops had been out doing some training during the month. They of course don't have to pay for their ammo, so they leave it on the ground. I picked up 148 once fired Hornady .223 (5.56) cases, and well over 100 Fed. 40S&W cases. Now that's the price I like:-)

    At $5 per 100ct for .45 ACP that's $100 per thousand for fired brass. For that price just buy new. Fired brass goes for $55-65/K shipped on the forums.

    $5 per 100 is $50 per thousand, not $100 per thousand.

    You're right. I had 20=1000 in my head for some reason, probably counting ammo in the 50rd boxes I was shipping out.

    Nearly all my .45 and 9MM were picked up after the police practiced. I don't know what they do now, but several years ago they left it on the ground. I picked up several thousand cases. They shot late, and so I had to get out to the range at daylight to get plenty of cases. I was not the only one scrounging them. It was cold some mornings but worth it.

    I did buy 1,000 Starline brass cases in both .45 and .357 10 or 12 years ago, but have not needed them so far. I planned to use them for SD loads if necessary. As for range pick up brass the .357 has been the least available.

    Regards,
    Jerry
