    I am Looking at purchasing a couple tons of brass for reloading. It is all Lake City once fired brass. I wont need it all for myself :cool:

    I know both .223 and .308 rounds are next to impossible to find and reloading components seem to be just as scarce.

    There is alot i have to consider in this purchase. Government certificates shipping etc...

    If i were to sell 5.56x45 at 13 cents each for example 1000 for 130.00

    And 7.62x51 for 20 cents each, 1000 for 200.00 Is there any interest?

    Price may be less depending on the index on brass the day of purchase.

    Going out on a limb here but i think the demand is there. I need some idea in the next 4 days! thanks guys! :thumbup:

    Those are the higher prices. If i get a better deal i'd pass it along and i believe i might possibly get it down to 10 cents on 5.45 and 15 cents on 7.62. i'd still do pretty well, plus i'm looking to further my own gun and ammo collection, so trades are possible also. Its what i've found works for me. I'm willing to go out on a limb and take a risk just for the heck of it. And yes, i'd be looking at around 250,000 pieces of brass LOL
