Our reloading brass comes from indoor, outdoor, and law enforcement ranges; sorted by size, then the steel, Berdan, and aluminum cases are removed. The used bullet casing is then wet and dry tumbled before being packaged for sale.
NOTE: Website inventories are updated regularly but may not reflect our current stock of empty shell casings due to the delay between receiving the range brass and processing it.
Range Brass Information
Once-fired brass (or Spent Bullet Casings) for reloading is NOT NEW brass, it is an ammunition/firearms industry term to loosely describe used reloading brass cases. If looking for a perfect case, it is better to purchase new brass cases. Although it is called "once fired," the actual number of times fired is unknown. We have serviced indoor, law enforcement (LEO), and military ranges, and contrary to popular opinion from our competitors and some reloaders, they all have brass that has been shot more than once (regardless of their policies and rules). Therefore, we never claim our brass has been shot only once, we know better.
- Our brass includes commercial and military casings. We do not sort by headstamp, manufacturer, case length, or primer size, unless specifically stated.
- OFB may have imperfections, such as minor dings, dents, or bent mouths. Most flaws can be easily removed during resizing or upon first firing. This does not mean they are unusable, it just means you must resize them and fire them to remove the dings. Click here to learn more.
- Brass casings are available in three different primer flash hole sizes: .057 (small), .074 (standard), and .110 (BMG 50). Ensure you have the correct decapping pin when resizing/decapping, as there is no SAMMI standard and manufacturers can use any size they want. The wrong size pin will make decapping difficult and break pins.
- Additionally, there is not a SAMMI standard for primer sizes; manufacturers can and do use different sized primers in their products. Note: Blazer, Ammon Inc, Federal, Speer, and X-Treme have both large and small 45 ACP primer sizes, as does Starline for their 6.5 CM, and many others do the same, 308s can also be in both large and small.
- All purchases of brass are in "as-is" condition. We do not guarantee these for every application or bullet combination; they are intended for general reloading in a wide range of firearms. Regardless of our stock photos, some brass may be deprimed. If they are damaged and can't be used, we will replace them, with the exception of dirty bulk brass.

Spent Bullet Casing: Important Use Information (New and Once Fired)
All brass must be thoroughly inspected and resized. Inspect the product for correct caliber and primer size, as incorrect caliber or "bad" brass may ship occasionally.
Before loading, carefully inspect and resize/decap brass with your dies. Prior to loading, you must perform a full length resize. US Reloading Supply is not liable for damage to your equipment or weapon under any circumstances as your responsibility as a reloader is to always inspect your components prior to using them.
Some brass sizes may include crimped primers. When working with crimped cases, care must be taken to ensure the primers are removed correctly and swaged. If you do not understand the difference between these types of cases, please contact us for information prior to ordering.
