1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Does anyone have a reasonable place to buy .223 brass?

    Really no prices "reasonable" the last week or so. The since-cancelled announcement that military surplus would be demilled sent prices even higher.

    I've been buying on Gunbroker and can't find any better deals.

    BTW this is not the first time the govt has decided to chop up brass cases rather than sell them for reloading. A good job was done changing their minds this time, they used the economic reason since reloaders are paying more for the brass than Chinese scrap yards but the best and most ironic was that it was more green to reuse the cases. LMAO it's great when you can turn it around on the bstrds.

    Dear Sir,
    The Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service (DRMS), a field activity of
    the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), is the Department of Defense (DOD)
    activity responsible for the disposition of excess and surplus DOD Property.

    The primary focus of the DRMS mission is to protect national security by
    ensuring property is properly identified for reutilization and disposition
    and not released for public sale when to do so would jeopardize national
    security.

    During the past two years, DRMS revised its processes to further ensure only
    appropriate items were made available for public sale. To strengthen
    current controls and to mitigate future security risk, the DOD issued policy
    that prohibits the sale of military unique items controlled by the
    Department of State through its Munitions List.

    Small arms cartridge cases are identified as a sensitive Munitions List item
    and were held pending review of the policy relating to the category of items
    in which cartridge cases were included. Upon review, the Defense Logistics
    Agency has determined the cartridge cases could be appropriately placed in a
    category of government property allowing for their release for sale.

    The DRMS sales contractor (Government Liquidation) has been notified of this
    decision and has begun the process of reoffering the cases that have been
    held pending completion of the policy review. As was previously required,
    buyers who purchase cartridge cases from the government must be approved to
    do so under Trade Security Controls.

    Just received a box of supposedly once fired Lake City .223 brass from the Brass Depot in Florida. Probably at least a half had been reloaded.

    Caveat emptor.

    Give Cheyenne Brass a try. It's been over 5 years that I had purchased .223 brass from them but at that time it was a fair price and good service. I bought once fired commercial brass. I believe their website is cheyennebrass.com Hope this helps, Darrell
