where can I get reconditined LC brass. appreciate your feed back in advance.
Top brass is who I use. Brass seems good and price is fair.
How many do you need/want and what exactly is re-conditioned??? I have a metric schidtt ton of once fired and it has all been cleaned. I can do anything else you want done...but need to know what that is. Any particular year???
Edit: Top Brass is getting $177.00 for mixed stamp recon per 1000...I'll do it for $170.00 and it will be all the same head stamp. Cleaned, crimp swaged, FL resized and trimmed.
I look at this differently, you can get loaded Lake City ammo for 300$ per thousand. Do the math, buy new and use that brass.
By the time you pay for shipping top brass it's 200$ for 100$ more you get loaded ammo to start your own arsenal.
Try Rockey Brass.
This is what I have used, no complaints whatsoever.
I've bought a lot from mrfleetmaster on GunBroker back when I had a Dillon.
Very nice brass. Fully prepped Lake City is around $80/1000 shipped. I couldn't find a better price.
Not trying to sell my own brass with this post, it is not costing me anything to stay right where it is, but.......this makes perfect sense if all you want to do is send bullets downrange.....not so good if you need/want ammo that is loaded with the powder charge and bullet your rifle shoots best. If the later then you now have gone $100 in the hole and still have to go send it down your barrel just to get some cases to reload.
I buy the loaded ammo and hand it to the kids I take to the range. They blast away with my bolt guns and have a great time! If they want to get serious after a few trips, they get my reloads.
Used them 3 times perfect brass every time. Usually a couple extra. More often than not one headstamp prevails, one bag had 10-20 of a different headstamp. One had abut 20% different. Loaded and shot well. Right now they want 100.00 per 1000.
For what it's worth, check out Starline 5.56 brass. Look through my post history. I took h20 measurements and it is the most consistent 556 brass there is. LC is all over the place (even with the same year/headstamp)
Starline is cheap. Once fired LC brass usually has borderline primer pockets in my experience.
I recently purchased 1K processed once fired LC brass from msprocessedbrass.com. Very clean, no crushed necks, etc. This is my first try at purchasing bulk once fired brass. I'd buy from this vendor again.
They have a premium option for a few bucks more.
Not an answer to the question but I have purchased Nammo new 556 brass primed from Powder Valley. A bit over $90/500 less in lots of 1000. Excellent quality, have had very good results with it.
Graff's has used brass for 69$ per thousand.
Jeff Bartlett @ GIBRASS.COM: $75/1k. + $25/1k and he'll tumble and remove the crimp
Georgia Brass , prices seemed competitive. There was a member on here that could get LC brass. I will look for his name. His name is navyrad8r , good guy. He gets unfired brass.
Jeff is a good guy. Shot a few matches with him before, and talked for a while after.
