I may not understand here but does "recycled" brass mean it was melted down and formed into brass cases again, or just cleaned and reloaded?A lot of stuff on their main page is from recycled brass.
Are you taking that into account with the comparison shopping?
I probably should have said "once fired" brass, but unless you're the one re-loading, I guess you never really know for sure.I may not understand here but does "recycled" brass mean it was melted down and formed into brass cases again, or just cleaned and reloaded?
Well , quite a while back in years , i bought some off of Gunbroker site .. It is quite difficult by the eye to see anything different .. However , the primer pockets on some were used so many times , the primers would be quite loose going back in .I probably should have said "once fired" brass, but unless you're the one re-loading, I guess you never really know for sure.
I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with recycled brass, but I don't buy it myself.
Not out of any need for economy or availability - I'm just already well-stocked up on everything except .22LR (new handgun caliber for me).
I'm a Glock fan boy, and Glock is pretty adamant about using new factory ammo only, and not reloads.
There's the famous Glock "smile" in the unsupported portion of the chamber, where allegedly weak brass from prior firings could be a problem if the reloaded cartridge just happens to line up perfectly, and the heaven and Earth conspire for the ensuing malfunction or tragedy, but since I'm not into handgun caliber reloading either, it does not matter to me.
When I do get into reloading (some future time TBD), I will definitely want to start with .338 Lapua Magnum, as that is an expensive round to shoot.
Fun. But expensive.
When the firearms market returns to some sort of normalcy, I may even start "building" a 6.5 Creedmoor or maybe a 7mm-08 platform. (?)
Sounds like a good deal on the ammo, Bob.
I hear that .45 is hard to come by at all in a lot of places, much less at "reasonable" price.
Don't mind buying reloads from an FFL 06 or FFL 07. I won't touch amareur reloads and will not allow others to use my reloads; I couldn't live with the liability in case something goes wrong.Sounds like a decent price. I guess if you’re out, you’re out and you need ammo. I have just always been a little hesitant to buy reloads if I don’t know who was reloading them.
