5.56 Military Brass
This brass is cleaned, once fired, military auction brass. Appears to be predominantly FC and LC but may contain other government contract brass. We use a dust-free cleaning process that polishes the cases and removes dirt, sand or other foreign matter. The brass is hand sorted to remove unserviceable pieces and extra brass is included to cover any damaged pieces missed during the inspection process.
Can be loaded with our selection of .223 bullets.

Outstanding Customer Service & Great Brass/BulletsReview by Gordo
Overall Rating
The grandson and I have ordered 1000's of 38 Bullets from EvergladesAmmo.Com, the free shipping and no sales tax makes us very Happy Campers here in Southern California.

We have also bought the 30-06 brass and never have had a problem with loading those rounds. We are now just getting into the 223/5.56 scene...we ordered 500 cases and 500 bullets...we get the weapon on the15th, so we had to buy new RCBS dies, hand held primer tool, Lyman's gauge, RCBS #10 shell holders and we got {get} the items within 2 days from Florida...by USPS too. Polished them even more and de-primed and resized and will load some tomorrow....There were 509 cases in the package{s}. We just ordered another 1000 bullets...we can't say enough about the price{s} and customer service up and beyond. We probably will be ordering additional cases. (Posted on 1/12/2018)
TAA brass is good stuffReview by Polaris
Overall Rating
Update on an order from nearly 2 years ago. Finally got into my stock of TAA 09 after loving the LC to death. Have to say, this is amazing stuff. Shot several clean scores at 200 and 300 on the NM course with this brass, previously I always seemed to leak a 9 or 2. Not sure if it's the brass or my skills improving, but the TAA will get the job done! Over 4 loadings on one lot with full house heavy match loads. Do not fear the TAA! May have to order more brass next year, my first order is running low. Everglades is GTG in my book! (Posted on 12/2/2017)

I Ordered 2500 cases of 5.56 Military Brass. What I received was 2177 WCC14 cases; 323 LC10 cases and 40 FC12 cases. During the quick separation I identified 6 cases that were unusable, meaning I still received more than what I ordered. Brass was clean and serviceable, thank you EGA! (Posted on 10/22/2017)

Brittle brassReview by jaybird7984
Overall Rating
This order, I received brass with head stamp of FC 12 mostly, some FC 15. I'm getting 11% neck splits when sizing. Tried different dies and lubes, but still at 11%. I love LC brass as it holds up well. I expect at least 11% neck splits upon firing what I've loaded. It would be nice to know what brand of brass you are getting when placing an order. Shipping is 3 days to AZ. And it arrives in one piece. Previous orders I've gotten LC brass. Very good brass in my opinion. This won't stop me from placing other orders though. (Posted on 6/17/2017)

5.56 BrassReview by Ron
Overall Rating
So I was really skeptical with all the good reviews. I bought 1000 and figured I would chance it. The cases arrived clean enough to run through dies and there were less then 2% that were no Lake City. Overall the brass was in good shape but did have maybe 30 defective pieces in the box. For 1000 rounds I am not at all worried. They are replacing my other "go-to" suppliers for brass. Well done guys! (Posted on 6/3/2017)
Excellent businessReview by MarkP
Overall Rating
I just want to say that Everglades is a top notch company! I have ordered brass from them several times and always get great brass. When I have had issues or questions about certain lots, they are very quick to respond and answer all of my questions and perceived worries. They will go the extra mile to ensure you are a happy camper with your order. I recommend them to my friends anytime I can, and am a VERY satisfied customer. I will purchase all my brass from them because they will go to extraordinary lengths to make your purchase right, unlike other companies, the customers satisfaction always comes first at Everglades!

Good BrassReview by Larry
Overall Rating
Great Job Everglades ! Very nice brass. 2500 piece order came in 3 days to Oregon in great shape. Total count was 2548, in the end 38 were unusable due to dents (2) cracked necks (10) or primers that the center punched though and left the side walls in the case (26) must be caused by factory hard crimp or corrosion, left me 10 extras. This is a good deal but takes so much time to resize/trim/de-crimp/de-bur... in my opinion the processed brass sold here at Everglades although it costs a few cents more per piece is a better value. keep up the good work.

Only 485 usable pieces.Review by Micheal

I have to recant my initial review because Everglades Ammo was quick to fix their mistake. They contacted me and sent extra brass. Anyone can make a mistake , but following through on it to correct it goes a long way. Great customer service EvergladesAmmo.com and I look forward to ordering from you again. (Posted on 3/17/2017)
Only 485 usable pieces.Review by Micheal

I just ordered my first batch of 500 of 556 military brass. After sorting through it is only ended up with 485 usable pieces. That is 15 short of what I ordered. Still good for the money, but I didn't get the full 500. **** EvergladesAmmo Note - Contact us and we will get you some extra brass sent out. Sorry for the unusable brass. (Posted on 3/9/2017)

Really nice looking brass. I will order more.Review by David
Overall Rating
First time customer so I ordered 2000 5.56 cases. Here's the breakdown of my order. TAA-09= 954, LC-09= 862, LC-08= 123, LC-04= 53, LC-05= 1, bad cases= 39 and good ones = 1,993. I can't complain over 6 cases! Upon close inspection I have to say this is really nice stuff. I am very very pleased. I have been reloading for 30 years and I will order from these guys from now on. My next order will be bullets. Looking forward to it. (Posted on 11/22/2016)

Only been reloading for a few months, but this brass is good to go. I ordered 2000 brass and it comes in 500 round bags, each bag contained 498-507 rounds in it. I found 11 rounds that had slightly crimped/oval necks on them. (Posted on 11/14/2016)
Jury is Still OutReview by Uncle Greg
Overall Rating
Ordered 500 once fired 5.56 military cases. I received 501 with 247 being TAA 09 and 245 being LC 08-09 and 9 unusable with just a visual inspection. They have been cleaned but not enough to run through my sizing die. If I were to guess I would say my order was picked from the bottom of the container in which the brass is stored. I don't think that can be helped. Just the luck of the draw. I've never used TAA brass so I can't say definitively either way about how I feel about foreign brass. I know I prefer to buy American products. With that being said, I am not as excited as the other reviewers. I would give 3 1/2 stars but going to be optimistic and give them a 4 star rating.
