    I will soon need some 40 and 45 Auto brass. Seems like Starline is all on backorder. I am considering getting some once-fired brass. Who is a good source for that and what are the pros-cons of using once-fired?

    Check with our forum sponsors. If they dont have what you need, just google once fired brass for sale.

    No cons, all pros! Free is the best price, but once fired brass from an on line dealer is still cheaper than new brass.

    And pistol brass is incredibly hard to wear out. Once fired factory brass is IMO, just dirty new brass.

    Also, if you shoot at an indoor range? MOST shooters do not reload and those two calibers are available for free if you simply ask the folks in the nearest booths if it's OK to scrounge it up.

    I always come back from a range trip with more brass than I shot.

    If you will send me a PM with your address, I will send you some .40 brass. It is mixed headstamps with some of it being once fired and some of it be tenth fired. I don't think I have any .45 and if I did it would be very little, but I will send you some of that too, if I have it. It will be a few days before I could get it in the mail to you, though!

    Careful with that though. If the range sells the brass theyll kick you out for theft. And some of them wont even let you pick your own back up.. I know, its BS.

    I was in a pinch for 40 recently and went to precision delta, they have 1k for $40, that includes roll sizing, decapping, tumbling and shipping, not bad since it went straight to the press for loading. 45 on the other hand seems like its been sparse lately, my range sells brass for $2 per pound and the 45 bucket has a few, if any stragglers thats it.

    I do believe in supporting merchants who support the forum. My order with Top Brass has been placed.
