Highest quality processed brass!!!


We offer fully processed high quality brass for sale.

We are a professional brass processing facility who sells brass to manufacturers throughout the US and now starting to sell to the public.

We hold a FFL and carry the industry standard insurance for firearms and ammunition.

We process to the highest standards for low prices.

What makes us different from other processors?

Every case is roll sized to SAAMI standards for perfect chambering (most processors don't have this equipment as it is expensive and difficult to acquire)
After that we full body size, deprime and swage our cases. (We use custom dies with minimal tolerances in sizing)
223/5.56 cases are trimmed to SAAMI specs.
We then wash the cases in a proprietary solution without any media to bright and shiny gold. (We don't use abrasives or LemiShine, we use a special compound that not only cleans, polishes but also protects the brass from darkening over time)
Every case is hand checked and quality controlled.

For unprocessed brass and other calibers please send PM

Prices are per 1000:
• 9mm $73
• 40 S&W $78
• 45 acp (large or small primer pocket) $96
• .223/5.56 $99
• .223/5.56 (annealed) $129

Bulk pricing is available, please contact us via PM.

We ship nation wide via USPS flatrate boxes and will combine shipping wherever possible.

WE NOW ACCEPT BITCOINS!

We accept all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover) at no additional fee.




We also accept USPS Money orders and certified Checks.

Please contact us here on THR via PM or at info@eastcoastarsenal.com

Is there any way to get strictly .223 Remington cases without any 5.56 in with them.

Unfortunately our 223 cases are mixed with 5.56 cases

is there a specific reason why you would like to have them separate / only 223?

thanks

Probably the average 10% difference in internal volume would be my first guess.

Thats a good rate- I will give you guys a shot some time.

the popular belief that firing 5.56 rounds in a .223 chambered rifle causes problems, applies only if the cartridge is a true surplus military round, as they have higher pressures due to the powder load.

Any and almost all manufacturers using the designation 5.56 on their rounds still load them the same way as a .223 cases would be loaded.

To keep this short and without starting a big thing here,

5.56 is the metric designation for military where as .223 has been adapted for civilian use

same as 9x19 being the metric military designation and 9mm luger the civilian.

It is trimmed to 1.755 +/- 0.01.
All cases are well within the SAAMI specs

Hi,
We actually did several tests and have acquired a lot of input from other manufacturers.

I will give you a well written explanation shortly.
Got to buy some groceries now

Atblis,

as you mentioned that link, I have taken the time to read that as well to make sure the information given is accurate.

As you read that article, you will see that the answers are very similar to mine and the overall information comes out to be the same thing.

223 is a SAAMI spec, so a 223 chambered rifle is under SAAMI Specs
5.56 is a mil-spec case and so the rifle is under mil-spec.

the main concern is always that a mil-spec 5.56 round (nato round) is hotter (more powder) and will result in a bigger pressure in your chamber, which may or may not be problematic.

now, the 5.56 case itself has a thicker base to withhold the extra pressure for nato rounds, but if you take a 5.56 case and use 223 load data with your rifle powder, it will be absolutely no problem if your rifle is chambered 223.

I have tested this myself, as well as other loaders and we came to the conclusion that either brass reloaded will be fine in either chambering.
However I want to disclose that everyone should do their own due diligence.

I will follow up with some powder measurements and different brands on mil-spec rounds and commercial brands.

Did you actually read the part about case capacities? Lake City 06 was the lightest case with the highest case capacity of the cases they measured. WCC 99 was the second highest capacity case. 5.56 cases are not always thicker, in fact it appears they are generally thinner than 223 Remington. This misconception stems from 308 v. 7.62x51 for which it is generally true that military cases have less capacity due to being thicker and reduced charged are warranted. I know Federal/LakeCity makes the statement that 5.56 may be thicker, but that doesn't generally appear to be the case. In fact, the 5.56 product they make, Lake City, appears to be one of the thinnest cases with the highest capacity. Again, people have measured this and found 5.56 to not be thicker than 223 in general.

PMP is the one to watch out for. Lake City is good to go.

Pictures of sectioned cases.

I was just reading on multiple other forums that the 5.56 case capacity is less then a 223 which would mean you need to lower the powder, but if you are saying that the case capacity is larger then a 223 than no change in powder charge would be needed.

Again, this is one topic that has been beaten online so many times and it still seams like no one has a specific answer to it.
All I can say is that we have clients that have been loading .223 / 5.56 brass and shot them with no problems.
Re-manufacturers have been doing the same as well.

Again, the only reason why "some" people say you shouldn't shoot a nato 5.56 round in a 223 chamber is due to higher pressure, but you will find an equal amount of people that will tell you that they never had a problem.
