    Hello everyone......

    I am in the market for a mass quanity of 308 WIN once fired brass (preferably federal gold match). Anyone know someone who is selling large amounts of 308 WIN brass? I am in the market for several THOUSAND rounds, somewhere in the range of 2000-5000 rounds of course depending on the price. anything will help, thanks in advance,

    SS308

    I've already played the ebay game and I'm not too happy with the results, so I'm now looking for other options.....:D

    I will be having some once fired LC .308 brass for sale in the next week or so. I'll have to check with my partner to see what we've got, but I know it's probably in the area of 2,000 or so. When I talk to him, I'll let you know, if you're interested.

    I just checked with my partner and we've got about 2,500 rounds of once fired LC .308. We'll have it all tumbled and polished in a couple of days. It's going to be listed on eBay, unless you're interested.

    can't help you with thousands, but since you said you were looking for fed gm match, i'll mention i have maybe 600-700 once-fired lapua brass. it's nice stuff.

    Federal isnt that great. You can only reuse it like 2 times, then the primer pockets get too big. I had a bunch from the Factory ammo i bought, but I could only use it once. If I were you, I'd just buy like 1000 new lapua brass and be able to reload it tons of times compared to cheaper stuff. If you need all 5000 at once, then just buy remington or winchester new from midwayusa, and you have all you need at a good price.

    Not now, but later

    At the range I work, I occasionally come across quantities like this of 1 fired FGM brass (the police seem to shoot LOTS of it). I usually find 1-2000 rounds. Unfortunately, the last lot if this I have I have already sized and primed and it's waiting to be reloaded for my rifle.

    I will keep you in mind the next time I come accross some.

    I also occasionally get really large lots of PMC brass (which is better quality IMHO) if you are interested in that.

    I have bought brass in quantity from the Wisconsin Cartridge Co. in the past and have been pleased with what they sent.

    I picked up some .308 Hornady brass at a gun show once and was very disappointed. After two or three loadings, the primers were falling right out of the pockets.

    Hope that helps.
