    How much is once fired, uncleaned brass worth? I tried posting this in the classifieds but since I didn't have a price I was told it doesn't belong there. So, I'm not trying to sell, just get an idea of what different calibers are worth.

    If you are selling, it's worth whatever you are willing to get for it. If you are buying, you can probably do some checking online at some of the ammo manufacturers and see what their going rates are. It'll depend on the caliber that you are looking for but you might be able to do a FTF for somewhere close to the going rate that you find online.

    FWIW, some places you could try are: www.cabelas.com, www.midwayusa.com, etc. for pricing

    For 1x brass, check cheyenne brass to find general prices, they don't list their out of stock item's price, so it makes it a little harder at the moment.

    An easy way to get a ballpark figure is to search completed auctions on gunbroker. You'll definitely get more if you tumble and inspect it first. Otherwise you may be looking at scrap brass prices (around .70lb).

    I don't really have the room or the time to get into reloading so I was asking about how much do the reloaders out there pay for once fired casings? Not cleaned, not deprimed, sometimes I kept the box and shell holder plastic thingy, sometimes not. Probably got over a thousand casings sitting in the garage taking up shelf space. Just want to get rid of it but I'm not going to give it away. I think it would be funny if someone offered to buy it by the pound and I delivered the brass as ingots...:)

    Here's one place for you: http://www.oncefiredbrass.net/brass.html These places all clean the brass for you.
    You can Google as there are other places that also sell once fired brass. I sent a PM to you.
