I have [only] 97 spent casings and know a few of you reload using these casings. Once fired [my me]. What should I do with them? What is customary?

Save them, sell them, or give them to someone who reloads.

Going market rate for 500 pieces of 5.7 once shot brass is 50. I imagine 5.7 reloading will become more popular over time but nothing compared to most calibers. If you actually know someone who reloads 5.7 give it to them or stick em in a ammo box and keep em.

I've sold 9mm brass for 4 cents a piece (1000 pieces of brass) and that seems to be the general area for common brass. Stuff like 5.7, 6.5 Grendel, 338 Lapua will get a bit more, to a lot more (338 Lapua brass is ridiculously expensive).

I save all of mine now as I reload it.

Maybe I should "pay it forward", as it were. Decide who, on here, would like to have a few extra casings for their reloading. :)

I would gladly take them, Or have people guess a number between 1 and a 1000 and who ever is closest.

blkbd, that could be a fun way to do it.

Or, I could ask who has reloaded them without any issues. hehehe

Okay, here's the game. Closest guess for what year my Marlin 39a is. That should limit down the choices some and be fun at the same time.
