What is the going rate for .50 cal brass? The reason I ask is that I found someone that has been taking it to the recycler instead of reloading it...
Thanks,
Jack

$.50 on the low end, some paying $1.00. Scrap price is down. Used to be a little over $.50 each scrap weight value.

If you pay him current scrap value then you'll be able to flip it for a bit of a profit no problem.

Also it depends on whether the primers are crimped also. Typically, I have seen around .60 to .70 per LC brass (one fired).

Assuming he is talking about .mil fired brass, it will be crimped. Do you have a large source for non-crimped once fired 50 brass?

Thanks guys I will see how much he has and if he wants to sell it instead of taking it to the scrap. It seems like a waste to me to scrap that stuff.

Again, Thanks.

No I don't have a large source for the non-crimped brass,but I have been fortunate enough to have a few hundreds that are not crimped.
