Looking for 45 long colt brass

Was wondering if anyone has any used 45 long colt brass for sale and if you do what would you be asking for it.

I also shoot 45 LC and it seems to be awfully rare. I bought some factory brass from Remington at my local Sportsman's Warehouse and re-loaded with that. It was definitely more expensive but between those 100 (actually 102, they must have given me a little bonus!) and the 50 I got from the Ultra Max I bought I feel pretty well set on 45 Colt atm.

It's probably going to be tough to get your hands on since 45 Colt is a popular cartridge to reload and like any revolver cartridge, they don't get flung all over the range, people typically keep them either to re-load or give to friends that do.

If I was you I would bite the bullet (no pun intended) and just buy a bag Remington or Winchester brass. It's on sale at Cabellas IIRC right now, and available at a few other places online.

You can get it from Starline...

Might share with you for small fee over what I paid.

Or you can order from them... tho it is always backordered for awhile.

I recommend Starline. Starline brass most noteably in 45Colt gives you much longer case life than WW or R-P and at less cost!. I waited 6 months for mine.
Starline just mfg a huge lot of 45Colt brass and it is readily available now.

I much prefer Starline over the others. But Winchester brass is still decent and much better than Remington in this particular caliber. It's been tough to get Starline .45 Colt for a long time. Although I see Midway at least has the nickle version for sale now. Starline says it will be available from them on 3/7/11. That's what I would do. Although I found a dealer in Albuquerque who usually has it for a very good price and his shipping charges are reasonable.

starline is worth the wait unless you have to have it right now. I would check your ranges and see if they have any range pick up for sale and or if they have a buy and sell bulletin board. Usually the used I've seen on the internet goes extremely fast. good luck

Buy Starline

45 Colt Brass - I get mine in less than 2 weeks. But I have been buying from them for 20+ years.

I found (200) Starline 45 Colt cases at a gun show, snatched em all up. Brand new too. I have shot the normal cases I have a lot, RP, and Winchester and even loaded hot over and over I have yet to crack a case neck.
