Brass Count

This is an opinion related question. How many pieces of brass does everyone keep on hand for each caliber you reload for?

Re: Brass Count

More than I need but less than I want!

I've been shooting since the 60's and have never thrown away any brass until it was used up.

Re: Brass Count

I try to keep about 100 for each magnum caliber at a time, and .308 I have a metric crap-ton.

When I build my .280 AI, I will probably have about 250 brass, b/c I plan on shooting it a ton.

Re: Brass Count

I'll keep two to four hundred casings for most rifles depending on usage frequency. For my AR I've got 1,200 rounds loaded and stuff for at least a few hundred more loaded. I shoot ten different rifle calibers (plus two pistol calibers), so I've got just a round or two around.

Re: Brass Count

Usually about 150-200 for each hunting rifle.Alot more than that for each varmint rig.
I have an addictive personality.I just love to pull the trigger.I have a metric crap-ton of rifles.There is a place in my heart for each and every one.GRIN
