This may sound like a silly question, but...

When you're shooting at a range that doesn't have a specified place to dispose of brass, what do you do with your non-reloadable brass, or any reloadable brass that you don't plan on reloading?

I ask because I clean up after mysyelf like a good Boy Scout, and I'm accumulating a bunch of 7.62x39 steel casings and 7.5 Swiss GP11 casings. I figure I'll probably just put the steel stuff in the recycling with the cans, but what should I do with the Swiss? It seems a shame to just throw good metal away.

Um, sell it in the trader? :confused:

I seem to recall that brass is relatively valuable stuff. Surely there must be some salvage place that would take it, in sufficient quantities?

There's a fool to buy most anything on ebay....

Brings good money at recycling yards. Got a friend that runs one, sopposedly is the purest brass one can find, pays the highest. Not sure how much though. But save that non reloadable brass! Stick a 5 gallon bucket in the corner and see how long it takes to fill it up.

Amen. An excellent idea!

Been told primers are brass, too. Keep a coffee can under my press. Some "recyclers" won't take "ammo".

Stay safe.

Um, read the question more closely.

your non-reloadable brass

I chuck mine in the recycle can at home.
