5.56 brassReview by Bob
Overall Rating
Just received my fifth order from Everglades and all I can say is thank you. Ordered 5.56 brass, 2000, and they look great. A couple of bad ones, but of course there were extras included so I made out, as usual. I will only buy my brass and bullets from Everglades. Because of the great service and because of the great deals. Have never been disappointed when dealing with Everglades. Thank you, I will be back..... (Posted on 11/30/2015)

These guys are by far the best guys to buy from. My order only had two cases that were unusable, but there were extras as usual. I've been buying here for years, and have never had a problem.. (Posted on 8/23/2015)

Great quality brass and outstanding customer service Review by Gary
Overall Rating
Everglade Ammo, Dave and Steve, have bent over backwards to help me with any issues related to my orders.

Just today I forget to add a discount code for 25 percent off. Steve replied to my emails right away and cancelled my order and told me how to get the discount. No waiting he just did.

Where do you get service like this? Everglades Ammo.

As an Engineer I am very picky and the quality of the brass they sell is outstanding no question that it's only fired once as the serrations are visible at the end of the necks of the brass.

They always answer my questions and give me advice as to improve my efforts in reloading. Heck they even make videos on sizing the brass. I only wish more companies were as honest and forthcoming as Dave and Steve.

Hope them nothing but great success as they have earned it in my opinion.

Thank You,

All is well. Very Pleased!Review by Tom

Order was filled on the day ordered and arrived day 3 after that. I didn't make a count - not going to count 1000 of them! I loaded them into plastic bags and found only one that was really crunched. I'm sure there were other stamps, but all I saw was LC. All were in good condition - no badly tarnished ones. :) (Posted on 7/23/2015)

I ordered the brass and bullet combo. Had a few bad cases. They were quick to correct the problem. No reason to go anywhere else for your reloading needs. (Posted on 6/12/2015)

My order arrived quickly. Sorting showed there were 938 LC and 60 TAA cases plus a few WCC, PMJ & PSD, plus one blank round! After culling 10 cases with crushed necks I still received 1006 cases. I'll definitely be ordering again. (Posted on 5/2/2015)
A bit disappointedReview by Robin
Overall Rating
This is about by 6th order of 5.56 brass. All previous orders I was amazed at the quality, this is once fired and not new? 5 Star quality easily.

Guess the law of averages caught up with me. Out of 1,000 pieces about 2 dozen had mouths severely smashed, a few I was able to save using needle-nose pliers.

Another 18 or so would not accept a primer, even after swagging them twice (primer pocket undersized). These 18 were all WCC head stamped.

Overall 30 to40 pieces were unusable. 4 Stars this time. If this had been my first order 3 Stars.

**** EvergladesAmmo Note - Sorry for the problem with the brass. We can send more brass with your next order or right away. Just let us know. (Posted on 4/24/2015)
A good buy !Review by LHFLA
Overall Rating
Brass arrived quick and in great shape. The brass was cleaner than expected and there were very few pieces that could not be used. The extra brass included with the order made up for those discarded. Most of my order was LC brass. I would order from these guys again. Nice to get a good product at a fair price. (Posted on 4/17/2015)
Good stuff!!Review by Bluetickhound
Overall Rating
Got my order today and the SS109 and .357 brass are perfect! The 1000 rounds of .223 range brass haven't been completely sorted yet but everything looks good so far. A couple of clinkers but that's to be expected and although I haven't counted it out it appears as though there is a gracious plenty more than 1000 pieces of brass here. This was my first order from Everglades but you can rest assured it won't be my last! I already passed the word to a local gunshop owner who has been looking for brass to keep in his inventory. He has always been really good about keeping things in stock when nobody else has them. Thanks again Everglades!! (Posted on 4/3/2015)

Simply The BestReview by Coyotejoe
Overall Rating
2 orders of 1000 and 1 order of 2000 haven't found any that aren't Lake City or are unusable. Come clean and shiny. Last order was shipped immediately but didn't arrive on time. Wrote to the good people at Everglades and was reassured that it was probably weather problems. Arrived the next day, these people are simply the best. (Posted on 3/18/2015)

Good brass Review by CI
Overall Rating
I ordered 2000 5.56 brass. I thought there would be mostly lake city brass ended up being about 50/50 lake city& taa .and 19 assortment of different makes & 2 that could not be used. I could see moisture in the bags when the package arrived. Brass looked great after I tumbled them. Look out for rocks when resizing. (Posted on 3/11/2015)

ss109 projectilesReview by dan
Overall Rating
Just wanted to say thanks on notifying me when ss109 came in. Order arrived timely as usual and in excellent condition. Have lake city brass prepped and ready to load next week. Usually don't load this projo, but since our dear leader says we shouldn't have them I thought I should get some. Thanks again for the usual great service. Hope I can get more later!
