"Hello, I'm BK and I'm a brass hoarder."

"Hi BK!"



I was hauling some stuff that I had been storing at my sister's to my storage unit (not having a garage bites, BTW). I decided I maybe ought to figure out exactly what I have, and found some brass I had forgotten about.



Now if I could just find enough primers to get some of it loaded.

Not really.

I have 8 x 5 gallon pails of brass - full.

8 x 2-3 gallon Rubbermaid containers, 6 of which are full.

Plus 4 x 1 gallon Rubbermaid containers each ranging to 1/2 full.

About 80% of the brass is clean and ready to be loaded.:)

I have 9mm, 40S&W, 45ACP, .223/5.56mm, .308 and .338LM.

That's a lot of brass, but I sure there are a good number of people that have more.:)

FWIW I don't pick up my pistol brass at matches except the 45, which I shoot from a 'clipped revolver. I do pickup my rifle brass.
With the exception of the 45ACP brass, I get the other calibers for nothing. Yes, including .338LM.:D

Certainly shows the difference between you guys and us. I dont know of any aussies that have that amount of brass laying around. I have about 90 Win .308 Brass and 15 Federal .308 brass and thats it. But i dont reload and im not at the range as much as I would like. And im still building my SPS Tactical up.
