Hi Guys... I just gave away my reloading stuff to family member. & just realized I still have 44lb of once fired brass. Lots of .233/.556 & bunch of 9mm & .45apc, & some others, Is there a market for this? Will scrap yards take it or is it worth more as ammo? I never used the reload stuff, that's why I gave it away.

Yes. Reloaders will by it.

.223 generally sells for $40 per thousand right now, plus shipping. 9mm is plentiful but you can still get around $17 per thousand plus shipping. Those are the two calibers that I buy, others might chime in with prices for other calibers.

Some metal salvage companies will take brass cases but they must not have live primer in them. It is relatively valuable as a salvage metal. My daughter saves all of her husbands brass and sells it to a metal salvager. She gets a pretty penny for it.
