    I bought some once fired 45acp brass for $5 a pound. I'm trying to figure out how much each round is at that price?

    How many pieces of once fired brass would make up a pound in weight?
    Fired brass with primer still in the brass....

    Hello GLocknut...just trying to help.

    The following I know...hope it helps.

    2000 .45 ACP will fit in a USPS flat rate priority box, and that's about half a five gallon bucket, or a bit less

    7000gr in a pound.
    Weigh a case.
    Divide 7000 by that number.
    .45 CCI brass with spent primer weighed 89.6gr.
    7000/89.6= 78.125, so 78 pcs of brass in a pound of .45 brass.

    For military cases I figure about 85 per pound due to the thicker case walls.

    Weigh one on your powder scale, multiply, and convert to pounds or kilos.

    $5 per pound sound a little high to me.
