    I have a sizable box full of various calibers that I've been collecting, but I don't think I'm going to do anything with it.
    Mostly 5.56, .45 and 9mm. Some 12g and .270 as well as other stuff.

    Brass might be worth close to $2/# at the scrap yards.

    I don't think there is any way we can know what your brass is worth until you take it out of the box, separate it and count it.

    Almost full? Half full? Enough to cover the bottom?

    It's about 2/3 full.

    And I won't be counting it, don't feel like putting that much effort into it. Worst case scenario, it just takes up some space while I add to it.

    If it's not worth the time to sort out then you're probably better off selling as scrap . I buy a lot of used brass but I know what it is before I buy it. Not trying to give you a hard time but not too many people want to buy something and then find out wether or not they can use it.

    Anyways I weighed the box, came out at 15lbs. I'll open it up to offers now, but no, I won't take $5 for it lol.

    Looks like a healthy bit of copperwashed comm-block steel cases in there. Looks like x39 when up against a .223. Can you sort out the steel and then weigh the box?

    If you go to the 13" line and come down in the picture just almost against the cardboard, that copper colored case, thats not 7.62x54r?

    God, reading this thread means that I just wasted 10 minutes I will never get back...count the brass, FFS, and perhaps you will be able to sell it. Otherwise, delete the damned thread and put the box back wherever it was previously.
