    Hey, reloaders,

    I thought at one time I would get into reloading so I saved a lot of 9mm and .357sig brass and nickel plated casings. I have them separated by manufacturer and packed in 100ct. ziplock bags.

    What's a fair price per 100ct. for these once-fired casings?

    9mm sell for about $17-$25/k of 9mm around here. brass and nickel are the same price. Dont load 357sig so no clue there.

    9mm is so common, anyone who shoots at an outdoor gun club probably has all they care to pick up. .357sig is far less common, so I suspect there could actually be a market for those. I can't imagine anyone bothering with buying pistol brass 100 at a time though.

    I have a bag of 357 sig too. Figured I would trade it for something when convenient

    SouthernBelleBrass.com has 357 SIG at 300 cases for $25.99. Her prices included shipping when I last bought in August of 2011. I'm not sure if shipping is still included in the price. These prices seem reasonable to me. ?

    $25.99 - 300 cases
    $57.99 - 1000 cases
    $106.99 - 2500 Cases

    Buying brass in less than a flat rate box full increases overall cost.

    I totally agree with you. The smallest batch of brass I ever bought was 45 Colt, and that was 500 pieces. I bought all my 10mm by the 1000ct, and buy all my 223 and 9mm by the 5 gallon bucket.

    justreloading.com runs specials on 9mm every couple of weeks.....$54.95 for 3000 cases, lightly polished. I've bought probably 10k from them with no issues at all.

    I just purchased a package of 6000 (9mm) clean/tumbled mixed headstamp once fired for $131.00 delivered. That's 2 cents/case which at that price would rather leave it on the ground. If still available in the fall I think I will get another.

    I sorted out all of the Federal and Winchester brass. This I use for my 9mm revolver with moons so I get all of that brass back even in a lost brass match. The rest of the headstamps I will use in my G17. If I'm practicing of course I will pick up the brass but I'm not going to obsess over it at a lost brass match either. I have picked up lots of range brass in the past and have quite a bit in my reloading supplies. If it's easy to pick up I will but I'm not going to get myself twisted up in knots doing so.
