    Thanks BillM, It is expensive as scrap brass, copper and other metals have risen in pricing . Then Foreign countries are buying whatever they can get.. Our recyclers are sending as much as they buy to China.. the reprocess and we never see it again.. The current days of alot of anything are gone for awhile..

    Yes old news, and even the reversal is old news.

    We had some old brass that was Berdan primed from the LEO range. It was taken to a scrap dealer for whatever could be gleaned from it. Per pound, unless great amounts, it doesn't pay for the gas to deliver it. I begin to wonder if lead/brass/copper prices may not be another one of those scams?
