I'd say, figger out the scrap price, per 500 and 1,000, and add shipping (Post office flat rate boxes). Don't need to process the brass (just keep the steel cases out). Ask the fellers here if they want to purchase any. This would clear your concious and you'll still make a little cash. I like to keep a lot of semi-auto brass on hand and I'm down to 1 thousand 45 ACP.
