Does anyone reload .40 S&W?

I have several hundred rounds of empty brass. Fired once. Is there anyone in the East KY area who needs or wants this brass?

There's someone in the Central Texas area who wants and needs that brass.

Well I can't find anyone in my area who reloads .40. Im willing to give this brass away if I can reasonably get it to someone.

I'll pay for shipping, and a reasonable price if you will ship. How much would you want

I have 200 so far. I'd be willing to send them just for the cost of shipping. May have another 100 by the weekend. Are you interested in 9 mm as well?

Thanks IGF. I just can't stand the thought of throwing away perfectly good brass if someone wants to reload it.

Another hundred would be awesome. 300 should fit in one of the cheaper flat rate usps boxes. I'll check the prices and send you a pm.

A LOT of people reload 40.

I've just got way more brass than I need, so I figure I'll let someone in on it that really needs it.

Plain ole FC .40 brass was rumored to be weak. From the stone ages.

I have found newer FC08 .40 brass, I doubt it is weak.

I agree with you in spirit, but I have had one case bow-out in over 20 years of reloading. It was a piece of the old FC 40 brass that found it's way into my cache. No damage to me or the gun. The head came off like the top of a Tylenol bottle.

Reloading

Figures that a flatlander would get a manicure prior to taking a picture holding a mangled piece of brass caused by his shoddy and dangerous loading techniques.

Did you get a pedicure too just in case you dropped the brass and had to point it out with your toe?
