BRASS AND ONCE FIRED BRASS
Here at The Old Farts Gun Shop I have had a service for the re-loader for many years as well as when I was on E-bay with once fired brass casings. I take pride in what I offer for once fired brass as I have carried once fired brass that I have got from indoor shooting ranges. Now we all know that the term once fired is a term and not absolute as if it was guaranteed once fired brass, I would have to have fired all myself and my arm would be mostly torn off if I had! I carefully sort the brass for head stamp names as well as calibers that the shooters like to use and then inspect, clean and polish the brass so as it is ready to use. I leave the spent primers in so as the postal services can not say the brass is live and ship with the United States Postal Service as for they are the quickest form of shipping. Larger orders are shipped by an overland service that is about as quick as it can travel because many re-loaders want their product delivered fast and efficient.
Since being an FFL license holder I'm always buying reloading
components and get all the information pertaining
to such supplies from my wholesalers. If you haven't heard about the
new prices let me tell you what has been happening. With many
of the major manufactures of loaded ammunitions
they all have government contracts to supply the
war efforts and or troops to fight in the Iraq
War. With this in mind all have shut down manufacturing
ammunitions for the private sector
or for the everyday shooter. In doing this
and with the supply and demand being the driving force that all new brass
casings took a 15% hike in
wholesale prices the first of January 2008.
that is not enough bad news, they are planning
another raise in Primers, Powder and Brass Casings
again sometime in April and then again by mid
summer and the percentage will be again at
15% straight across the board.
