    This is all over the internet. Google "brass casings DOD". Apparently, the DOD is no longer allowed to sell once fired casings to reloading companies without first destroying them. This drops the value of the brass by 80%. This potentially has huge consequences on the already stressed ammunition market, affecting availability and price. For more info check out the following links:

    With freedom comes much responsibility. It is for this reason so many are loathe to exercise it.

    Hmmmm a coincident with the recent elected commander in chief? His plan is coming together nicely, excellent (as said like Mr. Burns).

    This was posted on another forum. If it's correct it only applies to.50 cal and larger.

    Check the areas in red.


    DRMS-I 4160.14
    Section 3 - Special Processing
    Cartridge Cases (Fired Brass) - Expended
    Definition/Description
    Ammunition components consisting of cartridge and shell casings are subject to the
    International Traffic In Arms Regulations set forth in subchapter M of 22 Code of Federal
    Regulations (22 CFR 120.1. et.seq). Once expended, they are processed as fired brass scrap,
    with precautions to avoid improper release of unexpended cases.
    Policy References/Authority
    DOD 4160.21-M and DOD 4160.21-M-1.
    Unique Processing Information/How to Manage
    Receiving: The ETID/DTID must include the appropriate DEMIL code or clear-text statement for each
    receipt. The turn-in must contain certification that the residue is inert. Two signatures, a certifier and a
    verifier are required. Opening sealed/banded containers invalidates the inert certification. DRMOs will
    inspect what is readily visible (open boxes and drums) to verify the absence of contaminants, such as
    live rounds. No other level of inspection is required.
    Not authorized for receipt from DLA Depot Recycling Control Points (RCPs).
    NOTE:
    Warehousing/Storage: Storage will be accomplished in a properly assigned DEMIL Code “A” or “B”
    scrap pile.
    Reutilization/Transfers/Donations: GSA regional offices are authorized to approve transfer to SASPs,
    for donation to state and local governments, surplus expended cartridge cases (under .50 caliber) for
    reloading of the cartridges.
    DEMIL: All expended small arms cartridge cases (50 caliber and under) are assigned DEMIL Code “E.”
    Expended shotgun shell cases are assigned DEMIL Code “A.” Expended artillery cases are assigned
    DEMIL Code “B.”
    Sales: Sales in CONUS are authorized for casings 50 caliber and under (to satisfy local/reloading
    market/demand only). The appropriate sales method will be determined based on location, commodity

    condition, etc. as well as any current, unique sales/scrap processing initiatives that may be in place. End
    Use Certificates are required for these sales.
    Abandonment/Destruction: Used if specifically directed on a case-by-case basis.
    Property Accounting: DEMIL performed code “9” is authorized for casings assigned DEMIL Code “E”
    but no DEMIL is required.
    No additional unique property accounting required.
    The provisions of this publication apply to all non-A-76 sites and Government Personnel at A-76 sites. This
    publication may be mandatory or advisory to the Service Provider, as stipulated in the Performance Work
    Statement.

    I heard the policy was reversed watching a interview of Wayne LaPierre from the NRA on Glenn Beck. It is at the end of the video.
