Primed LC Brass, any takers?

Testing the waters here... I am looking at ordering some primed lake city military contract pull down brass. It's virgin, just needs neck sizing!
I can order just 1k or can do 3000, but only need 1000 of it. It would be $175 per 1k. Looking to order by tues/wed
Again this is military pull down lake city, mixed lots, virgin, factory primed brass.
Let me know, PM me if you are 100% in.
Unsure if I could get more than 3000 pieces due to demand/supply.

Edit: these are 5.56

If it is Lake City and "factory primed" you may have some work to do after you fire it the first time. I believe they crimp the primers at the factory and that requires you to remove the crimp before reloading the brass.

Just an FYI from someone who has had to swage a few thousand once fired LC brass....

Yes rich, that is the case. It does have a mil crimp primer. But none the less it is lake city, some of the best brass put there. I have sceen once fired go for $100+ and that's usually dirty range pickup.
I get it from a friend who has a shop in Indiana, he buys by the pallet the stuff from a de-miller. I think 3000 is what fits in a large flat rate box, hence the odd number

There are a few places online that sell once fired LC brass, deprimed and cleaned.
I think better deal.

If it's virgin factory pull-downs, that's a heck of a good deal. They just pull the bullet, dump the powder, and leave you with a lot of steps already done. No need to mess with the primers yet until you fire it.


If it's once-fired, I happen to have an ad in the classifieds.

you are correct, this is VIRGIN, NEVER Fired brass, only needs neck sizing since the bullets were pulled and powder dumped.
Only thing is that sometimes a case or 2 does need to be trashed, just a fault of the process but he has always sent me rather good stuff and always a few extras to make up for any damaged stuff.

They are 5.56 (.223) Mil spec brass, who knows why the gov wastes tax dollars to make, than unmake the ammo, most brass I have ever gotten is from the early 2000's, or so I am told.

The dies for swaging primer pockets are inexpensive, work well, and you only have to use them once on a military case.

Hi tech ammo has the same stuff for $115 on the K. He ships fast. I've ordered a ton of pull down bullets from him.
