Range Brass: selling price?

We just opened up our new indoor range a couple months ago, and already have enough brass to start sorting out and selling. What's the current range of pricing for the different calibers?

The common ones we're getting right now are:


9mm
.38 special
.357 mag
.40
.44
.45 ACP

You will get to a point where you just start selling brass for scrap instead of sorting. A buddy of mine works at an indoor range too and will usually sell off a 5gallon bucket of the brass (75lbs) for about 100-120 dollars to the local reloaders and just sell the rest for scrap. I am not sure about your area but IIRC they get ~1.50-1.75/lb and it saves them the hassle of sorting, cleaning, tumbling, bagging, selling.
9mm= 15-20/k
40= same (if you can even sell it as most are afraid of glock brass)
.38/.357mag= 30/k
.45acp=50/k

all are priced without shipping AND cleaned and tumbled.

Aren't clowns supposed to GIVE things away? A free bucket of brass would certainly bring a smile to my child like face.

9MM ought to go for 3 cents in 500 or more count
40 ought to go for 5 cents in 500 or more count
38/357/45 ought to go for 8 cents in 500 or more count
10MM ought go for 10 cents per hundred
380 would be a premium price as people want it......8 cents per hundred.....

get a set fo Shell Sorters www.shellsorter.com and you can sort a lot of brass.

Lousy web page, nice range. 15 lanes with electric returning targets and a separate 14 point pellet range for the kids. all put together by volunteers and donations.

I'm guessing you mean xx cents per piece in 100/500 lots sizes?

Got a set of the sorters. Man, they work great!

Check out http://www.reloadersauction.com/index.php? and also http://gunbroker.com/. They are both auction sites. You could sell on these sites. Mailing brass is best in US Post Office Flat Rate Boxes. The above sites should give you a good idea what brass is going for.
Sorted once fired sells more that mixed brass. 44mag, 357 mag, and .380 are selling pretty high, too high but .38, 9mm, and .40 brass is everywhere and prices are lower.

I have payed as much as $30 a K for clean, sorted and inspected brass. I have payed as little a $20 for a five gallon jug of that is what we swept off the floor with no steel or aluminum or 22's mixed in.
One range I go to if you will sweep the floor you can have the brass you sweep up. they charge $9.00 to shoot but I have always ended up with enough brass to shoot for free.

Just paid $33 per thou and about $70 per thou for 9mm and 45 ACP @ Midway for once fired brass. My local range gets more than that. I'm getting my friends to save them and I'll buy the brass off them. Saves us both $$.
