Sent you a PM
I didn't get a PM... Mind resending?
Ok, I've responded to the PM's received on this. From most responses, I'm actually pretty good on pricing.
It has been recommended that I give an option to take less at a little higher per case price. So I will offer 100 round lots at 16 cents a case, and 200 round lots at 15 cents a piece.
Please note that I am still only interested in trading though, so apply though prices to your trades.
And since I'm not asking crazy prices for my brass, NO I won't pay you 10 cents a round for bulk 22lr or jacked up crazy prices on 9mm or 223 either. If you want October 2012 pricing on your brass, then I will ask the same on the ammo I am getting in return, either way works fine by me.
I'm just doing this to get someone some brass if they need it and pick up a few more rounds ammo. If it becomes a complete hassle, I'll just pull the ad, it's really not all that important in the grand scheme of things. Which means I won't be driving out if my way to make deals, etc.
In general I like to meet people at the Fisherman and Marine off exit 9 of the 205, hope that works for everyone
Not trying to thread crap but october 2012 pricing for 223 brass was 5-7 cents a piece.
I totally understand your point. I made sure to ask some very knowledgable guys I know on this because I have no reloading knowledge to make sure I am not gouging anyone.
Now, I agree it could have been had cheaper October 2012. My best analogy is 22lr ammo. Could have had bricks all day for 15-18 back then.... It can still be had retail now though it is mostly 25-31 per brick when found.... Then you have the gougers trying to fetch 60 a brick. I'm trying to stay away from gouging anyone, but also making sure I am getting appropriate value for my brass, so I'm trying to be in that post October 2012 but not at all a gouger type pricing.
I am confident I have priced accordingly. But I really do appreciate your input. Zero sarcasm, I really do, and I respect the opinions of people in the community,
Bump - forgot I had these still.... since they're just sitting ill bump the price down to $0.12 a casing. Please apply that to ammo I'd like in trade from my first post. Reckon ill take cash too, but prefer ammo, mainly 22lr and 223 since I just ran about 1,000 rounds of each at the range this week and need more
I'll keep it short because I don't like thread crappers either. But you seem pretty receptive to advice. Like the other guy said pre panic prices on 223 brass were $50-$70 / 1000pcs all day. People couldn't even get rid of the stuff for that price back then sometimes. What I do to avoid gouging/scalping my fellow shooters is TRADE. Exactly what you are doing. However, what I do is post exact qtys and their trade value and what exactly I'm looking for in return in exact qtys. And add the explanation that you are trading pre-panic for pre-panic value. Selling just isn't the way to do things anymore. People have flat out lost their minds....
