Range brass delivery

I ordered 200 44mag and 200 357 brass on Sunday morning from Range Brass, received them in the mail today (Wednesday). Total including shipping $43.17
Very pleased with them so far lots of different head stamps to sort and inspect, but that's half the fun.
Anyone else order from them?

I've grown to enjoy the tedious aspects of reloading as well, unfortunately the only range brass I get is what my hands pick up

Hey after your recommendation OP, I just placed an order for (100) 270 winchesters, (400) 308 winchesters, and (200) .223 remingtons, $61 to the door. Thats a great value, now I wait so I can get busy.. The 308's are going to be converted to 338 federals.

Check you local shooting ranges . Here in Baton Rouge , local indoor range sells once fired 9 mm brass , reloadable brass, boxer primed no aluminum , steel or berdan primed, $12.00 for 1000 or $16.00 for 1500 ! Drop buy and buy it so no shipping and handling.
Indoor ranges have found they do better selling it to reloaders than selling it for scrap brass at the recycling yard .
You might be able to get a good deal from them.

Getting into reloading soon, I have a rookie question: How can a range know if the brass is in fact only "once fired"? thanks

if the indoor range only permits the shooters to use their store-bought ammo, then they know it's "once fired"

locally for me, that's what the indoor ranges do. they only permit shooters to shoot ammo that is bought in their store.

outdoor range you shoot whatever. run what you brung.

Yes here at one indoor range, you have to buy ammo there, and you cannot keep the brass. I do not shoot there. Another indoor range you can bring your own, or buy there, if the brass goes over the wall for the stall you shoot in its range property. Behind the wall its yours, if you choose to keep it.

That in mind I am a member and shoot at an outdoor range. Can keep all my brass, no problems, no fuss. Thats they way I expect it to be.

Many years back (early 80's) we had a range like that here too. It was one of the first indoor ranges to open in this area. And the first one to go out of business back then.

They can't guarentee it's all 100 % all once fired. They do sort and discard all damaged cases.
The dynamics of a range is there are two groups , one reloads and we pick up all our empties and bring them home. The others don't reload, go to the range or big box store , buy ammo , shoot it at range and don't bother picking it up.
Now we reloaders loose a few cases and those get swept up , but the majority of brass they sell is in fact once fired. The range also throws in extras , about 20 with every 1500, in case you get some unuseable cases.
I've been 100%+ happy with the cases I've received and will buy more from them. I discovered you can order it , precisionbrass.net is the site.

Yeah, that range I speak of, the first one just opened maybe a year ago. They have been a long standing sporting goods store, well known, but just recently put in the range. Think its 5 or 6 lanes. But because of how proud they are of their fees, and brass policy, I take my business elsewhere. Only time I even go in the joint is to buy powder or primers, if my primary local source is out. I have shot at the second several times, used to carry my dad for some pistol practice, but we have not gone in 4 or 5 years. It was nice to be in the A/C on the 90F+ days. But now I just shoot at the outdoor range, it has a covered roof, 10 or 12 pistol stalls to 25 yards, 6 or 8 rifle stalls with benches from 50 to 100 yards, a seperate 200 yard range, and a side range with multiple sections for bullseye, reactive, and tactical shooting.
In comparison I can shoot at my outdoor range unlimited with a 14 month membership for the price I would pay in maybe 3 hours at the indoor range. Plus I keep my brass.. Thats more bang for the buck......pun intended.
