Is There A Market For .50 BMG Brass?

I have been lugging this brass around for too many years and it's time to go so I am wondering if this is something that folks here would buy? From what I can tell it's once fired since it is all crimped and probably military. Got it from a buddy some years back and he was going to use it for a table or something like that. I will list it in the classifieds if good to go. There's about 40# or so and need a touch of sorting first.

Probably. See what once fired brass goes for and place an ad here.

A local gun shop sells them once fired with a projectile in them for $5 apiece. It would seam they should be worth half if that in the shape they are in. I have seen them used as handles for opening cabinets.

I knock the primers out then tumble shiny and sell them to other dealers for .50/ea. They like them to put them thru the rifle trigger guards to display them better.

LOL, or sell them to the guy that has time to make bottle openers. :D
I have the same issues using up or getting rid of it. I only load once fired stuff myself but right now I can get it cheaper already loaded and linked.
 
Everglades Ammo sells once fired Lake City pretty cheap with free shipping. Out of two lots of 350 there was only 3 bad ones, all of the brass was Lake City and it was actually pretty clean.
