Thread: Spent brass

    Spent brass

    What do people do with their empty cartridges? I have a bag full at home. Not a member of a club. Not a reloader. Can I recycle it somewhere?

    What make/calibre is it?

    Try sticking it in Classifieds, it might be of interest to reloaders

    i haven't seen any of the previous posts on reloading so apologies if this threads water.
    i went to see a mate who reloads, not sure if he is a member or not. jim, sorry i was not so enthusiastic ha ha see below


    he took me through the washing the cartridges the turning the heads primer removal the powder weighing the setting the primer the filling the shell the cleaning of heads the setting to the nearest 100000000000th mill to fit the head and then go to the range with three other types of batches then find which works best go reload them and save 20p approx per round

    YOU MUST BE MAD HA HA HA

    sorry but thats not saving money counting the time effort and yes unreliability of reloads no way.... never once with federals have i had a misfire yet seen reloaders with a few....not a lot.

    I buy 20 rounds of federal 100gn powershock for 21/25 box.
    to reload it will cost 14/15 approx maybe more or less but it takes hours and days to get the right batch etc etc... hours at basic rate of 5.75 no saving

    If i was to shoot target yes i would.. for extreme accuracy.

    opened three boxes of federals sunday. one round from each box of 20 to test at 100 yards these are 1 1/5 inch circles. top of a lucazade bottle the 500ml bottle. point of aim is the dot. .243 wetherby 2-12 meopta scope.
