Types of Cases and Things We Don't Want
Always check back on this page before shipping us your brass. From time to time we may stop accepting brass for certain calibers and will likely change our prices occasionally to adjust for scrap brass values and our demand. 

  • Live Ammunition - we do not accept live ammunition or dummy rounds of any type.
  • Steel or Aluminum Cases or Berdan Primed Cases - we do not accept steel or Berdan primed cases. If we receive them mixed in with other cases, they will be removed and discarded before your brass is weighed and a credit is issued.
  • Dented or Corroded Brass will not be accepted.
  • Belted Magnums will not be accepted.
  • Rimfire Brass will not be accepted.

How Much Brass Will You Buy From Me?
We will accept up to 100lbs per customer per year for store credit. If you have more than 100lbs of brass a year then please contact us we might be interested.

How Long Does it Take to Receive Credit?

It depends on our volume, sometimes the same day, usually within 3 days, sometimes up to a week or a week and a half. If we are behind, we will attempt to communicate with you about the delay.


How And When Do I Use The Credit?

You will receive a unique coupon code for each box of brass we receive. If we receive multiple boxes at the same time from you then you will receive one coupon code with combined totals. The credit will be issued upon us receiving and inspecting your brass. You will be notified by e-mail when the credit is issued.

The code cannot be transferred to another entity.

The codes must be used within 365 days of the coupon's issue date.

Unfortunately our website doesn't allow for multiple coupon codes to be used on the same order so if you end up in that situation, please call us to place your order and we will combine your coupon codes for you.

How to Ship Us Brass

1. Washing your brass- If your brass is filthy and dirty it needs to be washed. There are a lot of ways to easily accomplish washing. Youtube is a great resource for suggestions if you don't already have a cleaning method.

2. Sorting your brass - if your brass isn't already sorted and you wish to receive more per lb than unsorted brass then it will need to be sorted by caliber and or by caliber and headstamp.


3. Packing your brass. If you are using USPS Flat Rate boxes pack them as full as you can to receive the most value for your brass. We strongly recommend double boxing or reinforcing the box with straps or heavy duty tape(especially at the corners and seams) and putting the brass inside of a heavy duty trash bag. Please include a note with your full name, email address and phone number inside each box.
