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.

In So Cal I can expect to pay $5 per 100 once fired .45 ACP brass, versus $42 for 500 new brass from Starline from a local gun shop bailing out of reloading components.

Check on ebay. They sell .45 brass there all the time.

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.

I can get once fired military brass for $4/100 locally. That's a fair price in my opinion, especially when the guy wants $8/100 from anyone else.
