Greetings,

I found out there are roughly 107 brass of 9mm per pound.
How many 45acp brass per pound does it have? Anyone weighted it?

Thank you

7000gr in a pound.

Weigh a case.

Divide 7000 by that number.

.45 CCI brass with spent primer weighed 89.6gr.

7000/89.6= 78.125, so 78 pcs of brass in a pound of .45 brass.

38 SPL-10 lbs.
357 Mag-12 lbs.
10mm-11 lbs.

4000 rounds (in two flat rate boxes) was around fifty six pounds. That math on that tells me that each pound contained approximately 75 rounds.

45 ACP-12.5 lbs.

That's the number of pounds per 1000pcs of brass.The math on that says 80 rounds per pound.

On mixed headstamp I figure 75 per lb to be fair. Could be a couple more, but why skimp on a deal?

There will be variances in brass weight that will effect the per pound rate. That was a guide, not the gospel.
