    Sell it to a scrap metal merchant. Just this morning I received an email from one of the committee of our rifle club to inform me that he had weighed in a couple of bags of mainly .22 cases and received a cheque for 136 in return. The same dealer is offering 95p a kilo for lead bullets that we have recently recovered from the sand in the bullet catcher but isn't interested in the remains of jacketed bullets.

    I said mainly .22 cases because very few usable centrefire cases make it to the scrap bin at our club with so many avid reloaders about.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I would but have a huge amount of brass which I am no longer happy to load/unsure of its history hence it's not for sale. I don't fancy the bad reputation.

    This is why the local scrapmen won't take them!

    It's carefully checked before it leaves the range. This time only one live round was discovered but last time I found a handful which quite frankly really annoyed me and a severe warning was issued to the members of the club.

    I'm surprised any scrapman takes them.

    Yep it mounts up we haven't weighed any in for about two years. All helps to go towards a load of sand to top up the butts.
