The subject says it all, where do you get your brass? Do you pick yours up at the range, buy off ebay, get from friend, etc.

I'm figureing getting 4000 brass from ebay for $46 shipped, its not worth breaking my back picking it up!

Range pickups work and the price is right. eBay isn't bad but every once in a while I get a deal where the quality isn't up to standard. Can't go wrong with http://www.hqbrass.com. Great product. Excellent price. Top shelf service.

There is a police range close that I pick up most of mine. With the coming about of the U.S. Postal single rate priority box, means that you can get brassed shipped to you for only about $7 or so.

You can literally ship a person two bricks that would weigh quite a bit for literally nothing :D

Border Patrol and LEO academy use our range, plenty of once fired brass.

New: MidwayUSA, Cabelas, Gander Mountain
Used: Pick up my own (even though I'm not pushing pressure limits on any of my reloads, I like to know the history of the brass).

What is brass?

I shoot Wolf ammo!

I know, most don't like it :(

When I used to reload, you just can't beat the feeling of scrounging up once fired brass, especially the good stuff! :eek: Sometimes I would pick up brass I didn't even have use for!

Yeah, what a scrounger! :x :lol:

I'd like to reload but like hobocircus I actually like the wolf stuff. Sure its dirtier but so far no ill effects on the gun. Reloading isn't going to save me enough over wolf prices to invest in the equipment and time.

my swedish mauser however... will probably get me using my dads old rock chucker.

I wouldn't reload either except that I cannot stand shooting 115s. The cheapest WWB 147s around run just a tad under $8/box. Shooting 147gr Zero FMJs on eBay once-fired brass using Tightgroup runs about $4.80/box. That adds up very quickly for a high volume shooter like myself. :)
