    I've always wondered, how do you know its only been fired once? what if some reloader dumps all his shot 20 time brass and sells it to these guys?

    Does it have a factory primer, or a reloaded primer? Factory primer =once fired, handloaded primer=who knows? Of course, if the brass was bought as brass only and loaded once by a handloader, that blows my theory out of the water. Kip.

    I've seen guys at Gun shows buying brass, and I guess the big concerns operate the same way. They don't ask how many times the brass was loaded they just fork over 4cents a piece. The large shooting ranges sweep up whats left and sell to the guys on the net. I've seen ads where they want your brass and they don't specify one time brass.

    I pick up some brass a bit ago from them.. It was not one time fired .. 60% of the brass was un useable .. most looked like range brass that had been outside for a bit ..

    Got my order BrassMonkeyOnceFire.com today. Their website says they ship 105% (by weight) of each item ordered, and I'm happy to say that statement is correct. I ordered 150 pieces of 6.8mm SPC mixed brass and I received 154 pieces of mixed brass. Looks to be in good shape, with the typical shipping dings on the case mouths.
