Pretty self explanatory I just started reloading these 2 calibers and I dont know what the situation is around the nation but all the normal remote "out in the desert" shooting spots here in Tucson no longer are havens for picking up brass.. The last several trips I have made the ground was clear of EVERYTHING except steel case.. I cant prove it but I believe people are even picking up the rimfire brass for scrap.. It is completely insane... so im looking to buy brass in those 2 calibers.

Thanks Much

Down here .223 is all over the place(desert). there's this place know as the pit where we go out shooting and you can pretty much find any cal. you can imagine. the most common is .223, .40 and 9mm. wont be a while till i go out though.

10-4 that is how it was here about a year ago but for the last year its been ramping up being cleaner and cleaner (Brasswise) the best time to go used to be saturday night with flashlights and buckets because most of these spots are so busy on that day that people had to shoot n leave no time for someone to pick up brass... However Last 2 times ive gone up there on a sat night it has been very clean. Once upon a time I ran into an OLD curmudgeon up there who it was his hobby to go up there first thing monday morning to pick up brass he stated that he just saves it up until he has a large amount and takes it in for scrap!... All that usable brass down the scrapper. When I talked to him he said that it had been years but his last load over the scales was 18 Tons of scrap brass!... Anyhow if you decide to pick up any of that brass and dont want/use it yourself I will gladly pay you for it.

i will keep in touch. might be about two weeks till i get a chance to go out there. still stocking up on ammo little by little. 9mm is getting hard to find here even at wal-mart and academy unless you get brands like monarch and blazer, but i prefer wwb. i take my kids out there and they love picking up junk to bring home this time i will have them pick up some 223 and earn some money while they are at it. lol.
