    I wanted to ask if anybody wanted to trade a flat rate box full of reloadable .380 brass that is in good shape for a box of the same size of collected and tumbled 9MM brass?

    Please PM me if interested or reply here. I have far more than enough 9MM to last me a while, but only have about 300 pieces or so of .380.

    Thanks! :wavey:

    For that trade to be "fair"... you'd probably need to send FOUR boxes of .9mm to receive one of .380.

    .380 brass is hard to find, whereas 9mm and .40 is all over the place. In the time I collected 5 gallons of .40, I've only come across a small ziplock bag of .380.

    Let us know of what kind of responses you receive, but my guess it will be *none*. At least for the trade as you've specified.

    Yeah, I am starting to realize that now. I was not aware. That's okay though. I will keep scouring online to get some. I was not trying piss in anybody's cherrios. :wavey:

    Nor was I trying to be obnoxious, just letting you know the state of affairs regarding .380 brass. Heck, the places that SELL it are usually back-ordered. It is indeed hard to find. Good luck to you.

    I understand now. I appreciate you informing me a little more on the matter. I would never try to knowingly trade somebody something if it was not close to fair for both parties involved. Thank you. :wavey:

    I can get .380 brass locally pretty easily. I only bought 250 and I paid around $10. It is a fund raiser for our local youth shooting league so the price was not a huge issue for me. If you really need some let me know and I will check the price.

    The only thing worst than a 380 is a Markov. I round file them when I find them.

    I have come across a few of those before too. They go in the bucket to take to the metal recycling guy.

    I will take them! What would you like in trade? Do you need any 9MM? Anything else? Please just let me know. If you just want money, please let me know that as well and I will mail you a certified USPS money order.

    You can feel free to PM me if you prefer.

    I'll have to count but I also have a baggie of 380 from the range. I can vibratory clean them if you wish, just not decap. They *might* fit in my 9mm decapping/sizing die but don't want to mess them up somehow.

    I will take what you don't want or need. You don't have to go through the trouble of cleaning them if you don't want to. Please just let me know what you would like in exchange.

    Thanks! :wavey:
