Looking to buy 2,000lbs of 9mm Military brass for reloading, and I'm having trouble finding anything over 1,000 casings at a time other than the government liquidation site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I found this googling: https://www.google.com/search?q=military+9mm+brass

...but a lot of the military's brass has been sold to China-so much that our commercial reloaders haven't been able to buy components enough to run. That's another area the shooting industry needs relief in.

A ton of brass-you gonna sell your house? A range I frequent saves all the brass and once a year ships a semi-full to sell-with a shotgun guard...that stuff's done got pricey.

Actually, brass is very reasonable right now and easy to find. Scrap prices are very low too.

I don't know why they would need a guard watching over it.

They said it was because if it got stolen, it'd put them out of business...it was last year so I don't know the value of the load-it was valuable to them, at least.

It is a lot of brass. They would do better to sell it directly to reloaders. I believe there may be rules to prevent that though.

I didn't ask them if they were selling it to reloading companies or to scrap dealers...I dunno.

I wonder when that changed. It's been forever since I went to Carter's but the one thing I liked about that range was the tons of range pick-up brass, roughly sorted, that was always for sale, cheap. If you were willing to spend a while picking over it you could grab, say, enough decent, same-headstamp 30-06 cases to keep a hunting rifle running until it was disposed of via your last will and testament.
