    Where is the best place to get once fired 223 brass? I prefer non-military brass. Quality is more important to me than price. But I am also up for a bargin.

    Jeff at gibrass.com also has stocks of WC844 surplus powder at $115.00/8-lb. jug. I just bought two. It loads like 335.

    I bought from these guys a few times and have always got good service and fast shipping.

    Their inventory changes weekly I think so if they don't have a deal going on right now look again next week.

    I have bought 1000 Winchester .223, 200 Winchester 30 06, and 500 38 specials from them. All brass looks to be good in shape, cleaned, polished, sized, and packaged nicely. They also seem to regularly have used military and match brass. As far as price goes I would shop around with the other linked already posted and find the best deal.

    Sometimes you can find new Lake City brass at cheaperthandirt.com. I have bought two batches of 500 .223 from them. I don't recall the price now but it seemed reasonable for brand new brass. (Even though it's new, be sure to run it through your resizing die.)

    hi-techammo's price isn't too much more than gibrass. they offer completely prepped, ready to load LC brass for $105/k
    (but since i have a tool to swage the primer crimps... $69 is a heckuva deal these days, even though it's twice what i paid last time)

    Here's one other site that sells brass:http://edsbrassandreloaders.com/main.sc
    I'd give him a call or email as some brass advertised is not in stock. Great to deal with by the way. I've bought lots of brass from him in the past. He also sells once fired on the GunBroker Auction site and maybe others (handle is "46silverfox" on GunBroker). I'm just a satisfied customer by the way.
    Here's another auction site: http://www.reloadersauction.com/index.php?
    I'd not recommend Federal .223 brass unless a real bargain or it's all you can find. I'd also closely check all once-fired brass for case stretching or signs of separation. I typically find 2-10 per thousand even on good once fired that are questionable.
