This was my first order from Everglades. I will definitely order again. Ordered 500 got 518 with only 1 unusable. Order was at my door in 3 days. Very pleased with my order and will continue to use Everglades in the future. (Posted on 9/23/2016)
Another great deal.Review by Frank

Ordered on Wednesday, here on Friday. 1000 various head stamped pcs. packaged nicely and ready to be sized up and loaded.

Seems I got quite a few FC with some LC, WCC and a few off brand. I did also find one - 300 Blk.
Excellent deal for us "volume" reloaders that need quantity for practice and teaching the grandkids.
Thanks again, folks. (Posted on 9/2/2016)
Unusable CasesReview by John
Overall Rating
I ordered 1000 5.56/.223 fired brass cases in November with the intention of having something to do in my spare time over the winter months. As always, I was very pleased with the product and the timely shipping from Everglades Ammo. Although there were more than enough extra cases to cover the unusable cases, I would like to caution everyone to check the style of primers in the cases. I found a few cases that were berdan primed but unfortunately didn't notice them until after I had broken a few decapping pins, not a big deal but it is something to be aware of especially if you don't have any spare pins on hand.

I live in northeast PA. I placed my order around 3PM eastern time on 5/6/2015 and it was on my doorstep by 10AM on 5/9/2015. I purchased the .223/5.56 Fired Brass---1000 Pieces and 2000 .223 55 Grain Version 2 bullets. Despite some rough handling by the postal service, all pieces were accounted for. So far I have not seen any unusable cases, the few that were dented or bent were easily straighten with a resizing die. 99.9999 percent of the cases were Lake City head stamp. The 55 Grain bullets are also of superior quality. Many years ago I ordered from a company in South Dakota, but they have since gone out of business. Having recently gotten back into shooting/reloading with my 14 year old son, I was pleased to find the Everglades web site. I will definitely be ordering more products in the future.

Best deal around for quality used brass..arrived quickly, order was over filled to account for few damaged pieces, I think I had to toss 5 or 6 pieces out of 1000 (Posted on 12/14/2014)

The picture on the web site for these cases shows nice shiny clean brass. That's just how mine looked when I got my order. Ready to be resized with no fuss. Add to this blazing fast shipping. A lot of other online retailers could learn a lot from Everglades. (Posted on 12/8/2014)

Great stuffReview by Tom
Overall Rating
Ended up with 1041 pieces. More than half were Lake City. Most of the Lake City was 1x fired with a few already processed with the crimps removed, so they were at least 2x fired. The rest were an assortment of PMC, Winchester, PPU, Federal, and many others. I would say 70/30 5.56 to 223 respectively. All in all the brass looks great with only a handful of unserviceable pieces, but the extra more than makes up the difference. I'm happy with the order and will order again in the future.

Really HappyReview by david
Overall Rating
The brass showed up in a fairly quick fashion in a USPS box/ The box was full, there is over 1100 pieces in it. Found about 43 that I discarded to include 31 that were obviously used in a SAW and two 5.56 blanks. About 70% was LC or Federal brass. Very happy and you can not beat the price.

I ordered 2000 pieces of .223/5.56 brass and have so far processed all the civilian brass. I have only found 2 pieces of brass that could not be salvaged and hand sorting the brass I didn't see anymore that were bad. The shipping was very prompt taking only four business days. The brass was clean and did not need to go in the tumbler. Excellent quality of brass with excellent shipping time and the best price I have found on .223 brass. Not much more needs to be said.
