I'm not real big on offering reviews, but with the service your company provides, I felt compelled to do so. When the mail person beeped the horn in the driveway today I would have never thought it was my order. My only concern is that you have BUGGED my loading room, and had my order sitting on the counter waiting for USPS before I even placed the order. VERY WELL DONE GENTLEMEN. Not my first order, and certainly not my last. Thanks, will refer everyone I can to your company. (Posted on 8/4/14)
Best 5.56 mil brass I've seen in a LONG time Review by Dusty Carr
Overall Rating
Ordered 1000 pieces and expected arsenals and dates to be all over the map.
Not only was this brass shiny enough to resize out of the carton, but ALL of the brass was either LC05 or LC13. Needless to say, sorting this was a breeze. On top of this, shipping turnaround was warp speed and free shipping.
No grungy cases. No scratches at all. I wish that I had ordered another 2000. I will order 2000 as soon as I can sneak the carton past my wife :)
A shame that I can only give 5 stars. (Posted on 7/10/14)

Brass so good I had to buy more Review by Gary
Overall Rating
I bought 5000 of these 5.56 Lake City brass last week. I started processing them and after getting though about 1/2 of them, I thought to myself when do you see brass this nice for this price? The answer was never, so I order another 5000 cases for $395.00

I have buying brass and bullets from Steve and Dave for a couple years now. They are both trustworthy and very knowledgeable.

Who else takes the time and effort to make a video showing how to properly size the brass they sell? They are not take the money and run business men. They will get back with you within a day if you have any questions or issues. They are very fair and reasonable people and I trust them totally.

I am a retired engineer and I measure and double check every bullet I make. From working with 5.56 bullets for about 3 years. I found Dave and Steve are the only source I use now for cases. I can't find anyone that has better, higher quality or lower prices than Dave and Steve.

I hope these guys stay in business many years as they are my source for anything to do with bullets. Thank you both Steve and Dave. If I ever get to Florida I would like to shake your hand and personally.

****EvergladesAmmo Note - Gary, thank you for the very nice compliments. We hope to be around for a long time and certainly appreciate all of your business. (Posted on 6/8/14)

Good brass, excellent price Review by Jeremy
Overall Rating
Brass arrive quickly even though the holidays. 2000 pieces of brass I received was about 75% WCC (Winchester) rest was mostly lake city about 500 total pieces. The only gripe I have is the WCC brass has an astounding number or split neck cases, in my case it doesn't matter as I am converting them to 300 blk cases but I have about 70 pieces out of the first 500 cases that would be scrap otherwise. With all the extra cases I'm not really worried about the count. I will definitely be buying again. ****EvergladesAmmo Note - Split necks are rare in Military Brass but we have seen some in this particular container. We are sorting this brass extra well to cull the split necks so it should not be a problem going forward. If anyone has received an excessive number of split cases (more than the extras we send), please contact us and we will send replacement brass. (Posted on 12/27/13)

Very pleased with the product. Majority of the brass is Lake city with 10 and 11 stamp. Had a couple hundred stamped 07 to 09 and another hundred with 02 to 06. Had 30 WCC and 39 TAA with one 223 and 28 bad and bent casing for a total of 990 good ones. Although it wasn't 1000, it is still a very good buy and will be ordering again soon. (Posted on 12/23/13)

Best once fired brass you can buy Review by Gary
Overall Rating
Everglades sells brass that you can see has only been used once as the end of the brass still has the manufacturing saw tooth cut evident

I am a retired engineer and looked at this brass very close.

Additionally and more important the brass length far exceeds the min . This is very important to get bullet length correct and to fit the cannelure.

I have bought brass from others and found almost half of the .233 casings under then min length of 1.750" some as short as 1.720" range.

Finally, if you have any issues both Steve and Dave will spend a lot of time and effort helping get things straight.

This is a great source for quality bullets and brass and the owners are true to the product they sell.

My First 1000 was so good I had to order another. As I expected it was just as good as the first. All were Lake City once fired brass. Most were 2008 and 2006 vintage. Only 3 bad ones and 1043 good ones.

I ordered 1000 count 5.56 brass and was very pleased. It arrived on the same day they told me it would be. After culling a few pieces that were damaged I still had about 30 extra plus a few 308 casings. I look forward to ordering again and will let everyone know Everglades is the place to go if you don't want to be dissappointed.

Best I have ever seen Review by Larry
Overall Rating
Sept. 23rd, 2013 I ordered 1000 pieces of 5.56 military once fired brass. It was delivered Sept. 26th.
The brass was ALL Lake City and looked like new.
219 were 2009
737 were 2008
22 were 2007
65 were 2004

and 7 others were bad.

Outstanding!

About a third I plan on converting to 300 AAC Blackout and the rest leave for my 5.56

What can I say ! I am very pleased.... (Posted on 9/27/13)
Excellent! Review by MS
Overall Rating
Absolutely phenomenal brass and you can't beat the price. I usually look on Midway USA for brass and you pay nearly $180 for just 500 once fired LC brass. I haven't yet inspected the 1000 pieces that I ordered, but most appear to be LC and are very new and clean looking. I'm also very pleased because I don't like reloading 223 because of the thin wall issue, so it's nearly impossible to find brass that's listed as explicitly 5.56. Fast shipping too! (Posted on 9/20/13)

Ordered 1,000 556 cases which arrived in only three days. The 1,000 count was actually 1,053 pieces. after demil and cleaning I have only found three unserviceable cases. Will likely find a few more as I reload but for sure I will end up with many more than 1,000. (Posted on 9/20/13)
Hard to beat this deal! Review by Mike H
Overall Rating
Order for 1K pcs. of 5.56 brass is as advertised mostly LC stamped. A few dented beyond repair but very few. Extras are included to cover those. Just finished resizing 100 and results are great. Look like new brass after a final tumble in the walnut shells.
One word of caution when de-priming, a couple of cases had little white rocks stuck in them that were hard to detect untill my Lee die crushed them. (great dies!)
I would not hesitate to buy more brass in the future.
Thanks Everglades! (Posted on 7/30/13)

Beyond First Rate! Review by CochetaMan
Overall Rating
Ordered 4 x 1000 pieces of military 5.56x45 on Saturday and it was on my doorstep Wednesday! These folks don't screw around. The order came in 2, very well sealed flat-rate boxes, 500 rounds in each of the 4 zip-lock bags in each box. A cursory exam showed the brass as having a much better-than-expected shine and in very good shape. I'm seriously impressed! I see absolutely no down side to ordering from Everglades Ammo. Nice to see an honest, conscientious and hard-working company for a change!

I'm also a big 7.62x51 user. I might just order a couple thousand of those, too... (Posted on 6/7/13)

From the quality of the brass to the speedy shipping it was fantastic dealing with these guys. I have not reloaded it yet but I did clean it all and gave it a quick inspection while doing that. The brass was really clean to begin with and I have found only very few that were unusable out of 6000 .223. I highly reccomend them as long as they do not catch on too much and still have some when I'm ready to order again! (Posted on 4/9/13)

Ordered on Monday evening, got my package Thursday afternoon. And that's with all the storm trouble they're having down there this week! The brass itself looks great, about 90% Federal, 9% Lake City and a small handful of WCC. Very few dings or blemishes and most look like they'll size out. Only had to toss three pieces total- 2 blanks and one with a caved in wall.

Ordered the brass/bullet combo and will definitely do business with Everglades Ammo in the future. (Posted on 8/31/12)
