Primed .223 brass

Does anyone have a good lead on some primed .223 brass? Cheaper the better of course. Thanks

Buy once fired (223Rem or 5.56NATO) and prime it yourself. Any primed brass you buy is new brass (or split the difference and buy new unprimed brass and prime it yourself)

River Valley Ordnance - 5.56mm and 50 BMG processed cases for reloading These folks used to have plenty, they are not taking orders right now but that will probably change before long.

This might be worth a look too........

Does it have to be PRIMED??? You would need hazmat to ship that... I would think... although loaded ammo can go ORM-D...
How much brass ya looking for?
Whats the going rate for once fired, tumbled and cleaned ( but not deprimed) brass??
I might be able to help ya out with some.
Any particular brand/headstamp you want or are looking for?

Let me know!

Like loaded ammo primed brass does not require hazmat fees, that is part of the reason I am going for primed brass instead of getting brass and then separate primers and fixing them up myself. Gunbroker is hit and miss on good deals for primed brass. I know tactical ammunition .com used to sell 1000 primed .223 for 113 bucks shipped which is a steal but they don't have it anymore. I'm looking to get 5k rounds though not all at once. I live in the middle of nowhere so primers are not easy to come by unless shipped in I feel that primed brass would be the best route for me for now. I'm not really picky on headstamp.

I doubt I could touch any of those prices currently on gunbroker... It would take me hours to run a thousand rounds through my single stage press to deprime, and then another hour to prime them all...
one guy on there now has 1000 rounds for 135... Thats really pretty decent I would think!!! considering if you BUY primers they are about 30 bucks a thousand, and that would give you the brass at about a dime each and zero cost for labor. but you still gotta neck size that particular lot as its from pulled bullets.

Dang!!! I can remember when I first started shooting .223 you could get remanufacturered military ammo for .10 a round. A few years back while at the range I started seeing hundreds of once fired Winchester brass all .223 so I started a collection. Over two months I bagged I probably picked up 2000+ peices of brass. I'm still shooting from that batch.

I wouldn't touch primed brass unless I was sure what primers were used.

I would think if you were paying for primed brass... you ought to be able to get the primers you want to pay for... or at least KNOW what primers were used BEFORE you paid for any of it.

I guess thats just another case of Caveat Emptor... LOL

So are you telling me that primed brass does not require hazmat fees but, primers do? That makes about as much sense as most Federal Laws I guess.

Anyway Top Brass has Primed .223 for $163.00 per thousand. http://www.topbrass-inc.com/products.php?cat=7

"bulk" primers (& powder) VS "individual containers". Loaded into a brass case (IE primed brass or loaded ammo) is considered individual while inserted into a packet of 100 primers is bulk.
IOW it has to do with the "packaging"

Yea, I know but, if the truck caught fire and you were trying to put it out, would you rather be dealing with a few thousand primers, or a few thousand loaded rounds? I suppose the point being that primers would be more likely to detonate under impact than loaded ammo or primed rounds.

Loose primers can create an explosive dust, and it doesn't take much if any impact to set that off.
BTW loaded ammo is not dangerous in a fire AND is handled just like all other ORM-D items (spray cans, perfume and a whole host of other common items).

Hit a carton of primers with a 4 pound hammer, then hit a bag of primed brass and you'll see the difference, real fast.

Exactly right. Primers alone are classfied as an explosive, primed brass is not.
