    How do you get your brass?

    Just getting started in reloading and wondered your preferences. Do you guys buy new brass? Once fired? Pick up your factory loads after shooting? Range scavenge? Also do you keep track of how many times you've fired them or just keep checking over and using them as many times as possible?

    I have purchased brass new and used. Often times I pick up my brass and a little more at the range if a fellow shooter offers it up. I do inspect every case after cleaning and before handloading.

    All of the above


    Pistol brass is shot until it starts to split
    Rifle brass (from semi auto) is usually lost before I have any issues

    BK Bullet casting in Peru. It's once fired and cleaned. I usually buy them by 1000's. 1-765-473-7801. He has been doing this since the 1960's

    Rifle- I'm accuracy oriented, so I buy new brass as well as picking up my brass from factory ammo. I have a bunch of once fired range brass that I use for plinking only rounds in my .308.

    Pistol- 9mm I shoot budget factory. I don't shoot enough of it to spend the time reloading.

    Either virgin brass or from fired factory ammo. I don't pick up range leave behinds. Unknown history and IMO too much potential for problems.
