    Spent brass giveaway?

    Strictly hypothetically--

    What would you do if you had about 30 lbs. of brass in a box and you don't reload, but didn't want it to go to waste? How would you find someone to give/sell it to?

    Do you have a shooting range nearby? Someone there will be glad to have it.

    Yes and no. The nearest shooting range is right over there [points to two trees connected by chicken wire about 100 yards from patio] so technically we do have a range nearby! But that's a great idea. I'll look and see where the nearest public range is. Thanks!

    I'm sure someone will be happy to take it off your hands.

    @Inor 's wife @MrsInor made Mrs Slippy some lovely earrings out of spent brass cartridges. You could do that.

    Or you could do like me and keep them on a shelf in the basement and everytime I pass by them I say, "I need to get my reloading station set up!" then I go shoot and when I come back from my range life has happened and I forget about the brass until the next time.

    Yep, give it to your local range or club. They will sell it for fund raising or you could send it to me. I'll use it.

    Emailed the local gun club.

    I'd send it to you, Chipper but shipping would cost a fortune, I'd bet.

    I pick up Brass every time I go to the range. If it is a common caliber, you might just want to keep it for barter.
    I consider brass a precious metal.
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content

    You too?
    I have been saving brass for 40 years.
    Finally, in 2007 I bought a Lee single stage press and all the necessary components. Plus dies for 30-06, 45 Colt, and 357/38.
    Bought some powder and primers, 45 and 357 lead SWC’s.

    And, it is all out in my barn, still in the original boxes.
    Someday I’ll get around to it.

    Meanwhile I’ve got enough brass in my favorite calibers such as 30 Carbine and 8MM Mauser that I’ll never run out.
