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.

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)

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.

Great BrassReview by 85Oldvet

After receiving my first bag of brass I was very impressed with the quality and how clean the brass was. It was mostly Lake City with and without the crimps around the primer. I will definitely order more from these guys. Great brass!

Exactly as advertisedReview by Jim
Overall Rating
My order came in today, two days shipping time. The brass is exactly as described, a mixture of military and commercial. I started sorting because removing the crimp is kind of a pain. So far it looks like one third commercial and two-thirds of the shipment have crimped primers. I have bought from Everglades before and will continue to do so. (Posted on 9/2/2016)

Good Stuff!Review by Shane
Overall Rating
Purchased 1,000 of these last week. Shipping was fast as usual from Everglades. Out of all the brass about 900 pieces were Lake City and the rest was various headstamps. There were 22 out of the entire batch that were not usable but with the extras they threw in there was at least 1k of perfectly reloadable brass. The people at Everglades are first class and I will continue to buy reloading supplies here! (Posted on 6/27/2016)
