I have 4800 pieces of once fired Winchester .45 how much is it worth? I am going to sell it and my other brass for a down payment on reloading gear.Yes I know I will need the brass to reload but you gotta start somewhere.
Once fired 45 brass is pretty hard to come by and it should be easy to sell. There are a couple of gun stores around here that will buy all the once-fired 45 they can get for .03 per case. It brings .05 or more per case retail.

If I recall correctly, I paid $35 for the 1000 "once fired" Winchester brass cases I'm using now. Plus shipping, which was about $7. These are tumble-cleaned but otherwise not processed. That's pretty cheap, but the seller has a deal with several police ranges and indoor ranges, and he does volume business with low overhead.
I've bought "once fired" cases that appeared to have been fired a lot more than once.
Clues included split case mouths, thirty-year-old head stamps, etc. If your cases are really fired only once, I think reloaders would be willing to pay a premium for them.
If God didn't want us to own guns, why did He make the 1911?
