    Very happy with this product I ordered the 2500 round unprocessed option and after going through it I only had 4 cases that couldn’t be used. Great deal will be ordering more.

    Last week I ordered 500 once-fired .223/5.56 brass cartridge cases from Elite Reloading. I was emailed order confirmation right away and received the package four or five days later via USPS. The cases were well packed in a heavy mil. plastic bag, and ALL of them were exceptionally clean, inside and out; all were nicely polished; and—most importantly—all were entirely free of dents, dings, extractor burrs or deformations of any other kind. Even the mouths of the cases are perfect Os. Oh, and the primer pockets are almost clean enough to re-seat new primers without reaming, though I’m just too fastidious to try that. For all intents and purposes, these cases are virtually brand new. And the cost per case, shipping included, worked out to be a fraction under 7 cents. Not a bad bargain when equivalent new cases can cost 30 cents or more.
    So far, I’ve de-primed, re-sized, trimmed to length and re-primed about 150 cases. I’ve had a chance to inspect each case several times, and haven’t had a single reject. Not one. A very minor cosmetic imperfection here and there, but that’s all. I’ll be back for more and recommend that you give them a try.

    Customer service was great and replied fast. Brass came clean and most were ding-free. The cases that did have dinged necks were fixed once a bullet was seated. Shipping was super fast as well, ordered my brass on new years and received my order 3 business days later. I recieved about 410 .223 and 100 5.56, including the extra 3% brass. I’m very happy with the .223 to 5.56 brass ratio because I compete in high power matches and at 600 yards I need to be sure that my ammo is consistent. For the price, I couldn’t find a better deal than Elite Reloading Supplies.

    I ordered 2500 of the .223. A lot of the cases are definitely not once fired, many of the LC primer pockets have been chamfered, and a lot of the headstamps are unreadable. Most are useable, and I will load them but I don’t expect to get as many uses out of them as I had hoped.

    Ordered 2500 of unpolished cases. Shipping took 3 days. 1/5 of the cases had extensive damage on the shoulder area and were unusable. Not sure what they hand inspected but it wasn’t the brass I got. Maybe I got a bad batch but will not be ordering again.

    On my 3rd order, about 3000 rounds, I had 4 bad pieces of brass. I will only order from Elite now!
