I have bought bulk brass off Amazon.com at incredible deals. There are dealers there that buy from ranges, sort and sell. I recently bought 15 pounds of 38 brass for $56. LOL, I didn't know how much it was until after I hit the purchase key. Looked it up and yep, about 100/pound. After getting it delivered and sorting/cleaning/inspecting, I literally had right at 1500 cases. Need to buy any 38's?

I like to just start out with new brass myself, I'm still looking myself for a good affordable sourse for 30-30 and 44mag. bullets.

Starline brass works well for me in 44mag., I know thay also make 45-70 not sure if they make 30-30? Winchester brass has always worked best form me in my 30-30's.

If Midway is not out of the brass you need. I'm having trouble finding .44 mag brass online. Starline is out too, as is Wideners.

The name brand brass in loaded rounds from walmart is good, same stuff as you can buy in bulk. If starline is out of 44 it shouldn't be long for them to have it back in stock. Powder valley may be another good source.

Berrys Bullets is all I use for now. Very happy with them. I have bought them direct from the manufacturer or from Cabelas. Prices seem to move around so I check both before ordering. Cabelas gets you them quicker though.

All my brass is range pickups. The only brass I've considered buying is a batch of 357 as I only have a few, never find them at the range, and new ammo is pricey for 357 in my area.

I would avoid buying Federal brass - it is soft and your necked brass (30-30) will need more trimming than other brass.

RdHwk45Colt is an unknown quantity at this point
I think buying the "less exorbitant" plain box ammo (is ANY factory ammo really CHEAP?) from places like WalMart and saving the brass is how most people build their brass stocks. I like to sort my ammo by head stamp for applications like hunting, competition, or practice for one of these. When I get 30 or 40 (or more) brass in which only a few have similar head stamps, this becomes my "plinking brass".

For working up a load for a particular caliber, I like all the head stamps to be the same. Once I am satisfied that the load is: 1.) Safe and 2.) useful, I may load it in the plinking brass. But I have to be very confident that I'm not on the upper margin of pressures before I will.

All of this may be too much superstition in the name of safety and uniformity, but it seems to have worked for me, so far. YMMV

Starline has become my main source for brass. Always good stuff and very good price. I favor Berry's and Rainier plated bullets for the present. A lot of good lead bullet manufactures out there. A good deal have already mentioned.

I like Midway and Cabelas, but rarely ever order from either one of them cause I don't like their high shipping costs.

I know for a fact they get deeply discountered shipping rates, anyone with a business account does, if they passed that rate on to me they would start getting orders often.

I'm with you on this one. I have a long list of items on my wish list at Midway. They have been sitting there for a quite a while. Every time I look at the estimated shipping cost I realize that do not need these items that badly.
