Used Brass

Has anybody used this website before
http://www.once-fired-brass.com/products.htm
They have pretty good prices on used brass, but I do not want to buy from somebody that nobody else has used before.

I have purchased brass from here and a number of other sources online. I do not recall having a problem with any I have used yet. I just do not remember the specifics of my purchase from this source.

No idea, but the prices seemed a bit high for brass in that condition. Quanities also seem a bit odd, I could see 500 or 1000 cases.

I say this because it does not appear to be Remington or Winchester brass, but a lower grade of brass. My rule of thumb is 5 cents to 8 cents per case for pistol brass when I buy at the gun shows. And maybe 10 cents percase if it is rifle brass.

If you shoot at an indoor range, you should be able to get all the brass you need for free.

This appears to be range brass (unpolished and unsorted) and prices are to high. Try these guys for range brass.

Try this guy for clean inspected brass.

Yes, I have purchased from Once Fired Brass. I bought a bunch (1k) of 45 ACP and some .38 Special. Nope, I didn't count 'em, but I believe 99.9% were just as advertised; once fired brass (no alum or steel cases).
