Brass Counts by Weight

Brass Counts by Weight

When dealing with large volumes of once fired brass it is much easier to count out the brass by the pound vs. counting out each individual piece of brass. We use calibrated Ohaus scales to do our calculations out to the hundredth of a gram. We aim to be as accurate and repeatable as possible when filling orders and ensure to include a few extra. Unless otherwise specified, all figures below represent the average weight across 20 pieces of mixed headstamp once fired bulk brass with primers. If you do not see a caliber listed in our table below and would like to share your data, please contact us directly. The reloading community is a vast wealth of knowledge!
