Save Your Brass

This came from my GA-VHPA group. (Georgia Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association)

Save your brass! It has begun!


Barack 0bama is on track to eliminate shooting hobbies, even if it breaks the Country. To
all of you who voted for him........sooner or later he'll get around to something that affects YOU.

This is breaking news....

Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in America . (they sell 9 mm, 45, etc)
They normally buy spent brass from the US Dept of Defense - 'one time used' shell casings by our
Military - from training on Military bases, etc. They buy the brass And then re-load for resale to Law Enforcement, Gun Shops, Gun Clubs, etc. They normally buy 30,000 lbs of spent brass at a time.

This week the DoD wrote a letter to the owner of Georgia Arms and said that from now on the DoD will be destroying the brass - shredding it. It is no longer available to the Ammo makers - unless they just buy it in a scrap condition (which they have no use for). By The Way - The brass is NOW going to be sold by the DoD to China as scrap - for less money than Ammo manufacturers have been paying for the shells before processing to destroy. That sure helps the US economy now, doesn't it? Sell cheaper to China - and do not sell shells at all to a proven US business. Any agenda working here?

The Georgia Arms owner even related a story that one of his competitors had already purchased a load of brass last week - and the DoD contacted him this week and said they were sending someone over to make sure it was destroyed. Shell Casings he had already bought! THE BRASS HAS NO VALUE TO THE AMMO MAKER IF IT IS DESTROYED/SHREDDED/MELTED. HE ONLY USES IT TO RELOAD DIFFERENT CALIBERS - MAINLY 223 BULLETS.

Georgia Arms owner says that he will have to lay off at least Half of his 60 workers, within 2 - 3 months
if the DoD no longer sells their spent brass to him. He has 2 - 3 months inventory of shells to use. By summer - he's out.

You can read the info and see the DoD letter to Georgia Arms here: The Shootist Site:

At what point are we going to say enough is enough....sure we may protest things, but it looks as if the media and liberals only laugh. I'm at the point to where I'm thinking something big needs to go down to show our gov. who is in charge...

Ryan, not to rain on your parade. This has been rescinded by the DOD and it no longer requires the destruction of military brass .50 cal. and below.
