    Once fired brass

    Just wondering if there was much of a market for once fired brass? I have been collecting mine for the last couple of years, and I have a decent collection building up. A whole stack of .223 (mostly fiochi but a few boxes worth of h&f bulk too)
    Various brands of 708, mostly hornady from memory. If there is interest Iíll have a count up. What would they be worth each?

    There's heaps of 233 around since Aunty crashed the market..unless its something special it's not worth $1 a case. Other centrefire stuff is fetching that - at least that is what's being asked.
    I know a lot but it seems less every day...

    All brass is worth something.
    223 being so popular is not worth a lot but a large quantity of all the same headstamp is definitely worth something.

    There's a bunch of 223 brass auctions on TM at the mo including 200 Rem with reserve $100 met. So definitely some interest. None of it is mine.

    There are also a bunch of top fellas on here who give it away free. I have been the appreciative recipient a couple of times, fantastic when you are starting out on your reloading journey and have a heap of other costs. I've given a fair bit away myself now. If you need the cash then have at it, it's worth whatever someone will pay. If not, then pay it forward
