    I used to buy once fired brass on ebay when I needed a resupply. When doing a search I couldnt find one listing? Did they put a stop to the sale of used brass, if so what was there reasoning?

    No more brass, bullets, barrels, triggers,etc., I believe it had something to do with th Virginia Tech shooting, the guy apparently purchased one of his magazines on ebay (though I could be wrong about that part).

    Yup, no more components on eBay. A scientific study was conducted and the results were that ammo made from eBay-purchased components was 500 times more likely to hurt an orphan or a nun.

    Check Gunbroker.com and the Marketplace here on THR.

    The thing that really sucks about the whole issue is that there really aren't any more deals on components. You can check GB, AA and other auction sites, deals like stuff on ebay are few and far between.

    What calibers and how many are you looking for? Thought the price of brass has gone up substantially in the past year or two, there is still a lot out there looking for a home.

    all hunters and reloaders should refuse to buy anything on Ebay and let them know so!

    As stated,

    E-bay used the fact that the VT shooter MAY HAVE purchased a magazine via E-bay as their reason for banning many components. Not all, just many.

    You can still buy reloading presses and dies (gee, the brass and bullets can't be turned into cartridges without those), scales (for weighing out the proper powder charge), manuals (gotta have recipes to make those cartridges), ammo boxes (for storage of the cartridges), lead for cast bullets (self-explanatory), bullet molds for the cast bullets (self-explanatory) and other various components. Just not the brass.

    So there is a little background on the E-bay ban (or partial ban).

    That said, you can check the Reloading Components and Gear section of the trading post here at THR. There are various opportunities to purchase brass being posted all the time.

    Try ammobrasstrader.com, I've gotten tons of stuff there recently and met some nice like-minded people as well.

    eBay banned it this past summer. A feel-good move on their part since they are anti-gun anyway, it was the excuse they wanted.

    No real good deals on AA or Gunchoker. Best deals so far are on the forums. I am sold out of anything worth having until the range reopens and I can get back started sweeping brass again.

    http://www.brassmanbrass.com/ is a good place to go. Never had a single problem with him and got a free t-shirt once as well. LAtely I've bought brass from a local commercial reloader. He gets is roll sized, cleaned, and deprimed. It is gorgeous stuff and cheap too.
