    While taking in the soda cans with my son we found this box, 4 feet x 4 feet x 4 feet full of .45 ACP brass. There was another 1/2 its size full of brass as well. After talking with the manager they only buy scrap and cannot resell any of the material they get. I just about cried watching it being loaded in the compactor.....

    I only wanted a couple of 5 gallon buckets filled.

    WOW I wonder where it came from, could it have been flawed from some ammo company, because it looks too shiny to have ever been fired.

    The handful I picked up were all fired.

    is there a place that maybe proof fires guns in the area? If so then maybe they were pushed beyond normal pressure levels.

    there was another box that had a bunch of mixed stuff (rifle, pistol) but this one was all 45 casings. I'll have to make a call on Monday and see where they get it from.
