5.56 Military Brass
This brass is cleaned, once fired, military auction brass. Appears to be predominantly Lake City 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.

Got a 1000 cases today. Shipping was fast as usual. Only one bad case in the lot. Even the deflector dings were tiny. Didn't do a head count but assuming a 1000 I would guesstamate

A few 09
Only 4 cases not LC (Posted on 1/28/2017)
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)

Great Buy Review by George P.

I was skeptical at first but with all the great 5 star reviews I figured I would take a chance. When I received the brass in the mail I can honestly say I was not disappointed at all. I will definitely be buying from Everglades again when I need to replenish my brass. (Posted on 4/12/2016)
Good stuffReview by Robert
Overall Rating
I bought 1000 rounds of this stuff and it was in fine shape. It's nice and shiny with very few dings or dents. One push thru my sizer die solves the ding problem. Next I'm going to purchase and try some of their 64 grain bullets that they have for sale. I can honestly say that they just earned my business. Also you can't beat their shipping speed.
