Product Testimonial

"Went over all the brass and got them prepped for me to load. NONE were too short, so I sized them to "my standard".

Even though they were not all LC, I think they look great. 

Let me load/shoot a few and run them to the point I can reload them. That will show how they really hold up to pressures/resizing/etc.

So...  how 'bout them 9mm and 44Mag brass??(sure could use some that are of SAAMI specs)

Keep up the great product work.  You have a new, happy customer!"

Blue River FAQ

What quality or grade?

These cases are once-fired 223 brass for reloading. We have large quantities of Lake City brass. Each bag will contain mixed headstamps and may include any or all of the following: WC 09, LC 08, TAA 03, LC 09, TAA 09 or other markings. We do a very thorough and complete processing of the brass so that when you buy brass from us, you can begin reloading as soon as you receive it. 

Where does it come from?
These brass cases are military brass from ranges at various bases throughout the United States. 

What's in stock?
We are processing 223/5.56 brass every day. You can expect your order to ship within 2 days - usually the same day if the order is received by 2pm central time. 

Why not international shipping?
We do not ship internationally because we are prohibited from doing so by Federal regulation. Commerce of brass cases and other ammo and components are subject to ITAR regulations regarding export of these types of materials which prohibit export and prohibit sales to foreign nationals (even within the U.S.).   When you purchase these products you are certifying that you understand and will abide by these conditions.

How it is cleaned / sorted?
We designed our method of bulk brass processing for quality and speed so we can offer a great product at a reasonable price. We start by batch dry cleaning the used brass to remove most of the surface dirt and foreign material. At every stage of the process we look for imperfections in the brass cases, and reject any that will not be usable for reloading. After cleaning we apply lubricant and using dedicated sizing presses we deprime, swage the primer pocket, full length re-size to SAAMI specs, trim case length to SAAMI specs. Then we batch polish the brass with media and polishing compound. And finally, they go to packaging where they are counted by weight and then bagged and sealed. The end result is quality, once-fired brass for reloading.
