    I shoot a lot of 9mm. I also shoot a lot of Winchester White Box value paks/Winclean too. I don't reload, nor have plans on reloading. (The only one I know of who reloads is a friend of a friend)

    How do I know what a reloadable casing and what's not? Or is any centerfire brass casing reloadable assuming good condition? (ie. Is the Winchester stuff reloadable?)

    Should I take my brass home at the end of my range time in the event that I will get into reloading? Or should I just collect it to place in the large circular file of life? I have to pick it up regardless, so I can place it in a bag and take it home or place it in the garbage...no difference really.

    What would you do?

    I don't reload either - but someday....

    I have buckets of brass, including 9mm. Most centerfire brass fired only once should be good for reloading, however the 9mm is at the bottom of the list value wise.

    If you check the reloading forum there is sometimes debate as to whether it's worth reloading 9mm.

    I will continue to save it and in the future either reload it or sell it.

    5 gallon plastic buckets are cheap; so therefore police up all
    your spent brass, and sort it into the 5 gallon pails by caliber.
    In the event that you start handloading your own ammo, you
    may want to sort the 9m/m brass by head stamp; as
    this brass varies greatly from one manufactuer to the other.

    Georgia Arms will give $0.01 per piece of 9mm brass, so when I have a good quantity, I trade it for loaded ammo at a gun show. I imagine you can find a similar way to make it worth picking up.
    Reloadable ammo needs to be made of brass or nickel and when you look into the fired case if it has one flash hole in the center then it is boxer primed and thus "reloadable."
