    hi all,

    while i'm not interested in reloading yet, i am interested in trying to sell some of my brass to pay for a new pack. my question is...

    how do you know if brass is reloadable? i know my .308 prvi partizan is reloadable because it said so, but what about my winchester (180gr power point) and remington (150gr core lokt)? how about 9mm pmc?

    thanks in advance (and if you want some let me know ;))

    yes all are. PMC brass I've found (well just the X39, .380acp and 9mm is what I've shot) is good stuff.

    Look in the case, if it has a single hole in the center it's boxer primed and reloadable, if it has two or more holes, it's berdan primed and not usually reloadable.

    Usually, just about everything that is brass cased is reloadable.

    Nah, all of that is worthless. In fact, it's an environmental hazard.

    Fortunately, I am qualified to dispose of your environmental nightmare. Send all that brass to me and I'll take care of it properly.

    Of course I'm kidding, trade the brass you listed for the ammo you need. All of it is reloadable. Best of luck, friend, and thanks for thinking of us reloaders. We need to reload all the good brass out there. In fact, why don't you save that brass and get interested in reloading? It's a fine hobby...

    "...just about everything that is brass cased is reloadable..." Nope. There's all kinds of brass milsurp cases that are berdan primed. Reloading berdan primed brass isn't worth the trouble. All U.S. made commercial hunting ammo uses reloadable brass.
    "...I'm not interested in reloading yet..." You will be. And you'll kick yourself for selling once fired brass you won't get much money for anyway. Reloading lets you tailor the ammo for your firearm. While it doesn't always cut your ammo costs, it will be less expensive than any generic factory ammo.

    Just shine a small flashlight into the case mouth and count the flash holes...one is reloadable, two is not reloadable on standard reloading equipment. Some brass is much more desirable for reloading than the others. All American and Norma brass is desirable. :)
