    I have a lot of reloading supplies and no time to do any reloading. I have a lot of brass that I want to get rid of.

    $700 takes it all. The 223 alone is worth that.

    I estimated what I have this way: [full container weight / (avg weight of ten cases minus standard deviation)].

    1473 x Spent .40 SW
    160 x Primed, Widened .40 SW
    366 x Deprimed .40 SW
    554 x Cast .40 SW ball 155gn-160gn
    42 x Hornady .40 SW / 10mm 180grain XTP
    341 x Spent .38 spl
    587 x Deprimed .357 MAG
    659 x Deprimed .45 ACP
    946 x Deprimed .223 REM
    258 x Primed .223 REM

    So if I buy .223 at .30 a round and shoot it I can make a profit on selling the brass?

    Why has no one ever told me before!?!?!?:eek:

    You may want to go to Diamond K Brass.com and check your prices. Just my opinion but I think $150-200 would be more reasonable for what you have.

    Look guys, you are not taking into consideration the labor. He counted all pieces of the brass. Imagine how long it would take to count 1473 of .40S&W??? With the min wage of these days it gotta worth something, I am guessing;)

    He weighed them and used math. Seems very scientific actually. :confused:

    He might be missing a digit or two in front of some of those counts. If not, there's s fool born every minute that might think it's a deal :D

    It's so rare that it will only accept bullets made by Chuck Norris... They demand top dollar :s0010:

    C'mon you guys, you know he didnt really mean $700. It must be $70 because the last 8000 223 brass I bought were $49 per 1000. Got 3000 40S&W for $70, he must mean $70 not $700

    HOLY CRAP I got half a dozen coffee cans of pistol brass and at least a 5 gallon bucket of various rifle brass just sitting here. I need to call my insurance guy Monday and up the Household. I hope nothing happens before then. Course if it does I'll just have a little more empty brass LOL

    I think what we have here is a product of our public education system. Keep up the good work son, a few more visits to the range to scrounge brass and you'll be driving around in that new truck.
