Default Do you save your brass?

I'm curious how many guys save their brass? I once was at the range and the guy was just dumping his .45-70 casings on the ground.....my dad never saved his brass either, I do, though I don't reload yet.....i figure why dump it, can least sell it on ebay...or something?

I save it, but don't reload. I know a guy who does and he hooks me up with carts every now and then, so he gets my brass. I'm going to start loading my own soon. Ammo prices are nuts right now.

I save my brass and reload.

I've also been known to go dumpster diving at the range to collect the 'gold' other shooters throw away .

I have cases and cases and cases of Winchester AAs in my attic. I have them in plastic bags, counted out 250 (a case) per bag.... I have SEVERAL boxes FULL of those bags.... each box has at least 6 bags in it.... I suspect I probably shot three bags worth of them at the most.

I save all my rifle brass and I do reload it as well.
