    My normal supplier of once fired .223 military brass (Barrlett Reloaders) is out and I would like to buy some more. I also called hitech ammo and they did not have any. Does anyone know where I can find some?

    Thanks

    eBay. The sellers can't give the stuff away.

    Try Scharch's at http://www.scharch.com/

    They sell as is, semi-processed (i.e. ready for full-length re-sizing) or fully processed brass. How does $35.50 for 1,000 semi-processed cases sound?

    GI .223 brass is as common as gravel, but a little less expensive.;) If it weren't so expensive to ship, you could almost get it for the asking.

    I've got a bag of it hanging in my garage. I haven't counted it, but it looks like about a thousand rounds. For the price of shipping plus $3 (for packaging it up) you can have it. PM me with an address if you want it.

    i think that i have between 1 and 3K rds laying around. if you want it, i'll try to find it and i'll give you the same deal that old fart is giving. between him and i, you'll be reloading till your arms fall off.

    Thanks for all the input! I thought that it should be common and cheap , but doing multiple searches on the web I could not find a supplier. I knew I asked at the right place.

    Thanks
