Our reloading brass comes from indoor, outdoor, and law enforcement ranges; sorted by size, then the steel, Berdan, and aluminum cases are removed. The 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 due to the delay between receiving the range brass and processing it.
Once-fired brass 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.

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.
