Dirty old brass. mixed head stamps. Some 44 and 45, some 50's most later.
Most likely fired once as the only reloading die I find is a hand loader and no bullet heads.

Two lots with just over 200 rounds.

I think I can fit one lot in a flat rate box.

How does $20 a lot plus actual shipping sound?

Hey Dan,
Can you give me a history of these dirty old brasses?

Referencing the "Some 44 and 45, some 50s and later" Am I correct to assume all of it is GI issue?  If so I'll take all of 'em.  Too many of the commercial casings are sub-junk.

Few weeks ago I pulled my RCBS Pro 2000 Auto Index reloading machine outa the cobwebs to load some .218Bee rounds.  Once I get organized I place a dirty old brass into the mechanism and start pulling/pushing on the lever; it auto feeds, sizing/de-capping/ filling w/ 15gr powder/ I then place bullet atop brass then pull/push again; in 10 or so seconds it spits out a fully reloaded ready-to-fire cartridge.  Magic, ain't it?  If I accidentally stumble into an available M2 I'll need all the brass I can get.

Sawbones, From the Larry Ruth Collection cleanup in his range bag and bags.
There will be some extra included as I found some more and just tossed in bag.

He had  many boxes of "collector ammo" as pictured in WB which will be listed once I educate myself on shipping ammo.

Given the amount of work being done I only spot checked about a dozen rounds. I noted dates, WW, RA, CCC?
I cannot say there is no commerce, but suspect mostly surplus.

I do recommend  cleaning the brass before reloading!

Let me know and I will have postage calculated.

Best, Dan

Rec'd. all the Larry Ruth brass just today.  All good stuff.  Lotsa 1943, 1944 and 1945 G.I. issue in there.
Thanks Dan.
