80% (or more) of my handgun brass is picked up out in the desert.
The rest comes from factory ammo (rare), or brass purchased when I get into a new cartridge (uncommon).

Ditto what Frankenmausers said.

I often spend the same amount of time, or more, on shooting trips picking up brass other shooters left than I do actually shooting.

I live in the sticks where there are no actual shooting ranges, so my brass comes from a whole bunch of different places.
I am always browsing the online auction sights ( not nearly as much these days, prices are rediculous ) and I go through all of the want ads on a weekly basis , either for ads with brass or estate and yard sales that list sporting goods .
I have picked up quite a bit of reloading supllies and equipment for cheap this way.
I will also buy new ammunition or brass if I find a good sale.
