Sell Used Brass Casings With Capital Cartridge!

Cash for Brass™ is the brass credit program offered by Capital Cartridge that allows you to recoup some of the cost of shooting by selling brass casings. We've taken the fuss out of selling used brass and have streamlined the process, allowing you to have money in your pocket faster than before.

Why Recycle Brass Casings?

One thing every gun owner can agree on is the fact that shooting guns is expensive. This is especially true for those shooters who don't sell used brass. Regardless of how often you shoot, you are losing money for every round you don't sell back. Think of the benefits you could enjoy simply by selling spent brass:

  • You could put the extra money toward gun upgrades or a new firearm altogether could finally clean your garage/shed of those buckets full of spent casings.
  • You could finally save for that trip you've been wanting to go on.

How to Get Started Selling Used Brass

Selling spent brass is not as difficult a process as many believe. In fact, the most difficult part is retrieving the brass itself; the rest we have streamlined to make it fast and effective.

Step 1: Retrieve the brass

The main step in turning spent brass into cash is to simply retrieve the brass. While most gun ranges require shooters to police their brass before leaving, few shooters do anything with it. If you're picking it up anyway and don't plan on using it yourself, why not recycle brass casings with our brass credit program?

If you don't already police your brass at the range, why not start now? If you're not one to want to pick up hundreds of rounds of spent brass after a day of shooting, perhaps implementing one of these ideas will help you:

  • Make it a rule to pick up the spent brass casings after emptying the firearm. This decreases the amount of brass you're picking up at a time and ensures you aren't leaving money lying on the ground.
  • Get a brass catcher. This is a simple mesh bag that attaches to the firearm on the ejection port and, as its name implies, catches the brass as it leaves the gun. While these are more common for rifles, they work with pistols as well.
  • Shoot on a tarp or plastic sheeting. Be sure the shooters stand on the tarp with enough room left to actually catch the brass. Then, when the shooting is over, lift the tarp by its corners and dump the brass into a bucket.

The old adage “where there's a will, there's a way” plays true to selling your spent brass. There's no sense in leaving that money on the ground or throwing it away when we've made it so easy to sell brass to Capital Cartridge.

Step 2: Sell It

This is where our Cash for Brass™ brass credit program comes into play. Once you've gathered your brass, the first step to sell it is to register for a free account online.


Once your account is set up, you are then able to create an order to sell your brass to us. In the order, you will:

  • Tell us how much brass you have. This allows us to give you an approximation of how much you can expect to receive. (The amount given is just an estimation and may change when we process the brass upon receiving it.)
  • Decide how you want to ship it. We do offer the ability to print a prepaid shipping label through the USPS Flat Rate Box service. (This shipping amount will be deducted from the amount you receive.) You can also choose your own shipping method through the carrier of your choice.
  • Print out the order sheet and place it in the box with the brass.

Once you have the order sheet printed, it's time to prepare your brass.

Preparing to Sell your brass

We do not require you to sort, wash or process your brass. The only thing we ask is to not include any steel or aluminum casings as these are not recyclable and will not be included in the final weight. Other than that, all you need to do to prepare your brass is to place them in a plastic bag before boxing to avoid losing any casings should the box break during shipping.

After boxing your spent brass, we do recommend taping the corners of the boxes. We are not responsible for any damage or loss that might occur during shipping. Taping the box's corners will help it withstand any rough handling.

Step 3: Get Paid

Everything else is up to us. When we receive your package, we inspect and weigh your brass to calculate the exact price. This process doesn't usually take long, and we will mail you a check within 15 days of receiving the shipment. For each pound of brass, we will pay you $1.80.
