Cash for brass...

Here's your chance to get rich, if you can suffer the indignity of scavenging your fired brass...

... Dang, 71 1/2 pounds of brass and you'll be a hundredaire!

Local scrap price is around $1.05.  You have to pay shipping, you would have to fit over 57 lbs into a large flat rate box to make up the difference.  Plus they will only take what they reload.

Ill pay more than that as long as it is clean and not mixed with aluminum and steel.

Yes, most reloaders will give you a better price than any scrap yard, but we can only handle so much.
Scrap yards won't be phased by berdan-primed brass, however.

Or .22 or weird calibers.

The weirder, the better!

Although these aren't that weird, I'll take the following off anybody's hands:
6.5x50/52/55mm
7.35x51mm
7.5x54/55mm
.35 Remington
Prices vary, but I'll give you better than scrap yards. Boxer-primed preferred, but I may still purchase berdan-primed cases, too.

I suppose I should have posted this under  the reloading section, since Capital doesn't seem to be an ammo seller.
Move it if necessary, thanks.
