Interesting thing my wife showed me.

Wife got interested in a few crafters who use the bottoms of casings to make jewelry. I saw the possibility of getting brass pretty cheaply for reloading off the site called Etsy. For example here is a link to some .223

My wife has used etsy for artsy stuff like that before. It is kind of like pinterest mixed with ebay. But the particular link you shared doesn't seem to be that great of a deal. Almost $14 for 25 pieces of brass? You could just about get two boxes of brass case ammo (40 total cartridges) for that cost. So unless it was about 1/3 of the price, I'd probably pass. But if you were desperate for brass I suppose it could do. I know we are living through an ammo/component shortage, but that is still a large premium to pay.

100 casings for $50 shipped? woah! if anyone is that desperate, shoot me a pm. I can pick up a couple hundred once fired 223 from the range I go to in minutes. I could probably pick up 2 buckets full if i spend the day out there. thats some money ;)

Looks like a good place to sell brass, not buy it.

I might have to create an account to get rid of some .40 brass!

Wow where do I sign up to sell at? No worth a buyers time, though.
