Pick up your brass

I shoot on public land that someone bulldozed a few berms up on, as do a lot of other people in this area and it's starting to look like a landfill, except the only garbage there is plastic jugs people use for targets, and casings. I don't mind when people leave reloadable brass, 'cause it's like finding loose change on the ground for us reloaders. But for those of you who use that steel case stuff or rimfire, please take it with you. I personally pick up a few extra casings every time I police my brass so I make up for any of mine I might have missed. Not sure how much discussion this one is going to generate, but I felt like bitching and I'm sure I'm not the only one who sees this. Ah, all better.

I pick mine,

I don''t re-load, but I do pick up my brass. My shooting buddy does re-load so I just give it all to him. I also will pick up my targets, whatever they may be. Most of the time I don't even bother to take any sort of target, I just go to places that I know are local dump areas and shoot other peoples garbage then take it to the dump for them. I believe you have a legitimate bitch here and I'm willing to help you out with it. I don't know if your familiar with the Clay Springs area, but thats where I go.

I like my area

I'm not bitching about my area specifically, just in general. I've shot in a lot of different public areas and they all look the same. DAMN THAT WOLF AMMO!!!! Just kidding.

Have fun with that

I've never seen a deprimer die that was made for the dual flash holes in the Wolf stuff (I can never remember which one is boxer and which one is berdan priming). Reloading steel cases is something I would never try. I would imagine the brass is much more tolerant of expanding and resizing than the brittle steel. Tell your buddy good luck with that and come to Palominas, AZ if he wants a mountain of steel casings.

WOW

The odds are stackeed against anyone who reloads steel. It is very impportant to listen closely....it has a high percentage of blowing apart if reloaded. Those cases were not meant to be reloaded. It could injure someone or even kill them. Just my imput, safety first unless your glock doesnt have one ha ha

legimate complaint, it is just common curtasy to pickup your trash, and if it gets out of control you will turn public opinion against you and loose the ability to shoot on public land for free. I am forced to shoot at a range, and would love to have a public place so i could setup my own targets, but thats not the case, so try and spread the word to others who shoot there, because "you never know what you've got till its gone"

We manufacture a hand held device that simply rolls along the ground and picks up all types of pistol shells, etc. There are pictures on the website and if you have any questions feel free to call the number listed. This would make picking up all those steel shells easy and you wouldn't have to worry about bending over as well. Our website is www.holtsnutwizard.biz
