    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!

    I use to order from a company in Florida and had good luck with them but they changed their sorting method -even though they said they didn’t and they say there hand sorted but they didn’t tell me that Hellen Keller did the sorting the last order I got from them was the worst brass I have ever seen and yes they replaced 500 of the 1000 I ordered but they wasn’t much better so I thought I would give you guys a try and I must say this is the best 556/223 brass I have got from anyone I had 4 yes that’s 4 unusable cases and the rest was in very good shape. Needless to say I will be ordering more from you thank you for a quality product.

    This is my second order from this company. Both have been great experiences. Orders are shipped in an quick manner. The brass is top quality. I have order 500 pieces at a time. Each order has been between 10 and 15 peices over 500.

  9. Kristopher Hamlin (verified owner)

    Great product that came in the mail really fast. I will continue to buy from Elite!

  10. Jonathan Pollard (verified owner)

    Great product and fast shipping. Of the nearly 3000 rounds I had a mix of about 1600 LC, about 600 Norma, and a mix of others. I may have discarded 25 cases only because I didn’t like the headstamps, and maybe one or two more because they were damaged. This was a great product and a great service. My only regret is that other reloaders have discovered this gem and are soaking up all the brass… I’m ready for my next batch.

    Ordered last week and received my shipment in 3 days was well packed and brass looked brand new the only reason I new it is fired ammo is because of spent primers
    Will be ordering again soon
