Where to sell brass

Anyone know of places that will buy sorted bit unpolished brass? I have about 2k of 9mm, and around 1k of .40 and 1k of .45. All once fired and mixed between Fed,WW, independence. Not even sure what its worth these days. Any help and guidance is appreciated.

Call a couple of local gun shops. They will probably be able to help.

You could most likely sell it right here on Glock Talk. There's a seller's forum. You could also post in the reloaders forum. I don't recall the rules on cross posting so you might want to check before posting in more than one forum.

I Googled some prices and 9 MM ran any-where's from $50 - $150 per thousand depending on how it's cleaned etc.

Weights & Measures on Brass

I got this from another source not my info but useful.

9mm, 59.46gr/ea, 117.7cases/#, 8.5#/1000

38spl, 68.06gr/ea, 102.8cases/#, 9.7#/1000

40s&w, 70.1gr/ea, 99.9cases/#, 10#/1000

.357mag, 78.3gr/ea, 89.4cases/#, 11.2#/1000

.45acp, 89.58gr/ea, 78.1cases/#, 12.8#/1000

.223, 95.28gr/ea , 73.5cases/#, 13.6#/1000

.44mag, 114.38gr/ea, 61.2cases/#, 16.3#/1000

50bmg, 865.26gr/ea, 8.1cases/#, 123.5#/1000

All weights are uncleaned fired cases with the primer remaining.

Individual case weights were derived using an average of mixed brass weights (except 50bmg)

So, if you picked up 8#?s of 45 brass: 8# X 78.1cases/# = 625 cases+/-

If you use 1gal ziploc freezer bags to store your brass, each (full) bag contains:

9mm, 15.6#, 1836cases
40s&w, 12.2#, 1219cases
45acp, 11.4#, 890cases
223, 11#, 809cases

or if you use the 5gal bucket method

9MM = 8500-9000 pieces
.40 S&W = 7000-7500 pieces
.45 ACP = 3800-4000 pieces

sell it on the forums that you frequent & just make the deals with shipping. I buy all my brass on different forums.

I recent purchased 3000 9mm, shipped for $60. I know it was an unusually good deal though.

Georgia Arms, and Freedom munitions both offer a brass credit programs. Around 2.50 per pound. They credit my account, and I use it like a discount off my bulk ammo purchase.

That is what I sell my range brass for.

If I'm not to lazy to pick it up.

If I had any spare money, I'd buy some brass off you.
