Looking for a source once fired 5.56 NATO

I'm about to use up the last of my once fired 5.56 NATO brass, some time ago I bought a steel 5 gallon bucket full of once fired Lake City 5.56 brass. I cannot find (or remember) the dealer I purchased it from, but I am very pleased with this brass.

Anyone have a good source for once fired?

I like gibrass.com, but when I'm at Fort Knox it is just a hop skip and a jump over to Jeff's warehouse to pick up a load.

There was an ad in Shotgun news for 1000 rounds of 5.56 for $80.00. It is once fired, sized, swaged and cleaned.

TJ Conevera has once-fired processed military cases for $85/1000 + free shipping - http://www.tjconevera.com/onfi223miprb.html
Quote:
This brass has been processed using Scharch machines. They check the round for cracks and it removes the primer, and reams the primer pocket. The brass has not been resized. The brass has been polished.
