    I'm not looking to gouge anybody, so what would be a fair asking price to sell 300+ rounds of .380 brass? I know ammo is hard to find these days and figured somebody might need these more than I do.

    Get a magnet, you have a lot of steel cases in there that are worth nothing.

    The copper washed steel cases look just like brass. check them with a magnet. I do this for all the 9MM range brass I pick up. Occasionally I find a copper washed steel case. (S&B) if S&B is doing it with .380 I need to check them as well.

    My S&B .380 (marked 9mm Br. C) is brass FYI.

    Yeah, $20-$25 shipped is about right, I'd say.

    They are the gray colored ones, could be aluminum those too are non reloadable. But you will find steel cases in there you just have to look, I only see one chrome case there.

    Jim

    As Walkalong mentioned, there are what appears copper washed cases in there too.

    I recently purchased 800 once fired .380 cases (tumbled, deprimed) for $20.00. I know the seller and they really are once fired. I think I got a good deal :D

    I'm looking on a 32" screen. I don't see any steel. There may be a couple nickel plated in there or it could just be a reflection.

    Poorly lighted picture through a plastic back lots of reflections on a computer monitor. :confused: I'll give the OP the benefit of the doubt and say they are all likely brass cases.

    $20 sounds like a reasonable price as long as they are all reload-able.

    Thanks for the info guys. I don't think there are any steel ones, but I will do the magnet check just to make sure. And Ill get my dslr camera and take a real pic of them and repost it here. Thanks :)
