    Anyone here recycle their shot shell primers? If so what could I expect per pound?

    I checked one place this morning and they turned them down because of being sealed together.

    I load them into a shot bag, staple the top shut, and use them for rifle bench bags.

    Kinda like recycling...

    I use to do the same thing Tim. For some reason they kept disappearing from the rifle house.

    Last year my Father took some to the local recycling location and they ended up giving him $.30 a pound.

    With a mixture of brass and aluminum they should be worth something.

    I thought "recycling primers" meant you could use them more than once and here you guys are talking about throwing them away! Bummer!
