    How much Brass is too much

    I started sorting a bunch of range brass last night,I probably sorted about 200 pounds of various calibers,and I didn't hardly dent the pile,I figure it's gonna take me at least a week maybe two to sort and clean this stuff so I can make room in my garage for my bike

    Too much is havlng stuff you don't use. As for "TOO MUCH" of what you use, there is no such thing.

    200 POUNDS??? And "hardly a dent"? Wow, I've got maybe 200 spent brass, not pounds, individual rounds, of .38/.357 and was thinking about buying a reloader. I guess that can wait a while, huh? LOL

    Brass is always fun to collect. I've got about 40,000 pieces of .223 brass right now. Little over 500 pounds. Then I've got a couple hundred pounds each of 9mm, 40, and 45 brass too. But only 38 pieces of .308 brass.:(

    Collecting brass is addicting. How much is too much? If your not selling it and you've got more than you will use in a lifetime then it's time to share with your fellow shooters and reloaders to perpetuate the sport/hobby.

    I wish I had your problem. I don't go to a range, don't even know where one is. I have to resort to buying brass or buy WWB for brass. Hope you have a bigger cleaner than I do.

    Y'all sound like you're having the kind of problem I'd love to have. I have about 1,200 empty .45 ACP cases and would love to come into more. I just now got my progressive press set up and am looking forward to using it. I'd dang-near give a kidney for another 2-4,000 cases that I can reload!!

    I love collecting brass. I spend much of my free time sorting brass, and just reloading. There is no such thing as too much brass. But if you do find yourself with "too much" just send it my way!
