    not sure if this is the correct place to post this ....but i am building my reloading bench ... i want to get 2 large caliber fired brass cartridges... at least 50 cal or larger would be preferred... i want to use the bottom part of the cartridge to use as knobs for a drawer on my reloading bench.. about the size of a 12 gauge shotgun shell..

    if you have any idea on where to get 2 large fired brass shell casings please let me know ..

    thanks,

    try a gun rifle range or gun shop. You might find that at one of those 2. But 50BMG components are not easy to find and most shooters save that stuff

    ebay would be your next option.

    Some gun stores have 40-millimeter casings - too big?

    40mm would be kind of big. 30mm "Apache droppings" would be perfect.

    You're right - 30mm may be what he needs.
