Re: Collecting-up Spent Brass Casings
I too shoot on my own property and try to keep the brass cleaned up. The larger centerfire cases I do pretty good, maybe +95%. Those .22 rimfires are masters at hiding though. I can scour the area and am sure I have them all only to turn around and find five more. I think they breed when I am not look at them. I spread gravel for about ten feet all around the shooting table and that helps. If I walk out into the grass toward the targets for some short range practice it is almost impossible sometimes to find those cases. A project for this summer is to set some target holders closer to the shooting position so I can stay on the gravel area but it is going have to stop this rain that we are getting every day.
A friend brought a metal detector one day and that is the ticket but I won't put out the money for one just to recover brass.
