    I'm thinking of selling my stash of .45acp brass. It's mixed headstamp, some is range pick-up and some is once fired, but it is all mixed together. All together, it weighs approx 49 lbs, which means there is approx 4000 pieces.(figured at 12.1 lbs per thousand) Can anyone give me a ballpark idea what it may be worth?

    Just bought 1500 rds of range brass 45 ACP last week. Good brass, cleaned and bagged. $15 per 500, 3¢ each.

    Anything you are interested in in trade? I can ALWAYS use more 45 brass!!

    Limited supply---one guy picking it up at a range here in the valley. Cheapest I ever bought 45 acp brass was .5¢ (yup--half a cent) per round. It was some nasty stuff, about 5000 rounds in a feed sack. Probably tossed 5% of it, but the rest cleaned up well enough to load. With the exception of AMERC. it's ALL good brass!

    I normaly pay about $60.00 per 1000 cleaned or $50.00 per 1000 dirty.
