I want to get into the reloading game soon, and my most used caliber is the .223. This brass will be a big help to help me get started on having some brass on hand. Also, it will make Hunter happy if you give it to me .

I have been waiting for over 6 months (for my 1st AR) for Midway to receive Del-Ton rifle kits, and the ETA was the 13th of April. On the 11th it changed to Unknown.

I need this to fill my time until I can find a rifle kit!

BREAKING NEWS!
President Obama comments on Bruce's giveaway!

Quote:
"You can call this class warfare all you want. But asking a brassionaire to give Dooligan that brass? Most Americans would call that common sense."
(Plus, I want to keep FP out of the reloading game and make Hunter cry).

There are two fools in this world. One is the millionaire who thinks that by hoarding .223 brass he can somehow accumulate real power, and the other is the penniless reloader who thinks that if only he can take the .223 brass from one class and give it to another, all the world's ills will be cured.
-H.Ford (kinda...without the reloader & brass parts)


I'm neither. But if I win, my ills for .223 brass will be cured.....for the time being. Thanks for your consideration.

I will sell it to get my dog some higher quality dog food. She currently poops water and corn. I need the primary ingredient to be a protein.

I would like this prize because I recently promised my wife I wouldn't buy any more gun related items and I am sadly lacking in .223 brass. Plus, as I am just getting going with reloading this about the only brass I have been able to find.

I need it because when I come back from Africa I will be broke and will not be able to buy any ammo/brass etc. I have primers/bullets and powder so all I need is brass to feed my four 223 chambered firearms.
I will also be too broke to go places except maybe the C&R Shoot if I give up eating for 2 weeks. So I will have time to sit down and reload.

I might be too broke to pay the $15 so you might need to pick that up also

I, Maltese Falcon, do hereby swear and affirm to send Bruncefinch $15 to Not send me the winning brass. New to reloading, I resized 1000 pieces 45 ACP for the first time two weeks ago on a single stage press. Seems I strained a neck/back muscle that still hurts.

OK I will play ( Those 4 words don't count) Neither did the last 5 or these either.


I will be giving them in a selfless fashion to the soldier fiance of my daughter. He is smuggling brass from the base by swallowing it and reclaiming it once off base (EWW). This brass just may save his life, it will be going to one who serves our country.


Yep 50 words go ahead count them and it is only 49 since EWW is not really a word.

Well, it's not sad, sobby, or funny, but true. My 13 year old daughter loves shooting my AR. So I told her "you shoot it you feed it. So she's been reloading for it. Getting low on brass and the range has slim pickins. The added bonus of her doing this is good quality time with my girl sitting in the garage processing ammo. Doesn't get much better than that!

I have an emergency response plan for dealing with an invasion by the heathen communist hordes.

I suppose I could substitute the phrase "low on brass" in place of "Bolshevik fifth columnists".

If given this brass my harbor freight mini chop saw would be whining at the thought of chopping off 1000+ necks. This would also help me destroy the chop saw within the 1 year warranty period.

I've been sitting at the computer looking for brass for so long that all my teeth have started to rot out of my head...

As a result I need that brass to make a brass 223 grill for my teeth.

And also to feed two very poor and orphaned AR's

the only ammo i use now is from my stockpile so i can teach new shooters, I was starting to get into reloading when the shooting happened, now i can't find any components. If i got this i would use every round to teach new people.

Just to clarify, he's not smuggling 50 BMG in this manner, is he?

I have a rare copper and zinc deficiency. My Dr prescribed copper and zinc suppositories to treat my illness, but, due to Obamacare I cannot afford them.

Brass is primarily copper and zinc. Please send me your brass so I may shove them up my bum.
.223 should fit nicely.

It's been a tough year and the brass will help to make it better. It started right before new years when my wife ruptured her ACL and fractured her tibial plateau. Finally had surgery after two months and now is on the mend after being off work for 5 months.

I have been teaching my eight year old daughter to shoot, and I am helping her build her own AR. The brass would be put towards starting her own stockpile of ammo that is hers and hers alone to shoot. She will need ammo to learn how to shoot correctly. \
