In the Puget Sound area prices are anywhere from the low $2 per pound on up to $2.60 , some of the smaller guys like to take the brass in at around $1.60 which is too low but better than hauling it many miles to eek out the highest price. I never have to seperate "nickel" or chrome cases. I think they frown on .22 shells but sometimes I sneak some in , most time they go in the trash. Call around to your metal recyclers. My experience is the ones near the Port pay the best. In WA, they can only issue you a check for something like $35 on the spot. The balance you have to wait for up to two weeks.
How much do you have? I may be interested in buying a large bulk of it if it is once fired, calibers I can use, priced right and not rejects. If you want to talk about that feel free to PM me.
There is a post on another board in the Seattle area where a guy is trying to sell 30-06 primed at 15 cents a piece. His post has been up for a little while now, so I guess it's either too much or not that much call for it.
I agree with Doug, you are better off selling the 40 as re loadable brass. You should be able to get anywhere between $50 and $100 for it, if it's 2,000 pieces. I know, kind of a wide range, but all depends on what is available out there at the moment and what shape the brass is in. Clean, tumbled brass is more, just picked up at an indoor range would bring in less, and picked up outside in the dirt and showing it would be a lot less.
I'v tried a few times to sell the .40.Seems no one wants it unless it is dirt cheap and free shipping,so it went into the 5 gallon bucket along with all the rest.lots of 380 and 9mm,a hundred 30-30 cases and a few 300 and 300 h and h mags.
