Great job again Everglades team! This is my second order of 2,500 processed 5.56 brass and one order of 3,000 range 5.56 brass. Everglades always includes some extra brass to make up for damaged or unusable brass. In my opinion this processed brass is the best value on the market that saves a ton of time for a few pennies more. This order I had to contact the Everglades team and Dave (the owner) responded and took care of my concerns within 1 hour, now that's fast! I will continue to order brass and bullets from them. Great Job Again! (Posted on 1/10/2018)

Received order of 500 processed brass quickly. Found brass to be as described in add. My breakdown appears to be about 65% LC and 35% WCC. About 1 in 50 have a very slightly dented case mouth. So far I have loaded these without any affect on accuracy. I will be ordering again! (Posted on 9/11/2017)

Received 500 count order quickly. Looks like I received about 30-40% WCC with the remainder Lake City. Only have had the chance to load 50 so far. I found zero cases that need help. I did have to clean primer pockets, but its a minor inconvenience. The processed brass is such a time saver that I will be buying more. (Posted on 9/9/2017)

Ordered 2000 pieces. 2043 arrived with no culls. Everyone was in good shape and primed easily. I have bought the non-processed brass before. Never again. The cost difference is so low for such time consuming tasks when processing large quantities. I highly highly recommend this brass! (Posted on 6/18/2017)

High quality brass all from Lake City. All of it was top quality and cleaned up like new brass. I don't plan on buying anymore new brass as long as I can get this. Everglades shipping is excellent. (Posted on 5/28/2017)
Outstanding value - very consistentReview by Don
Overall Rating
I went with the processed and ready to load option. For a few extra bucks it saves all the effort. I quickly installed primers (Winchester small rifle) in the cases and loaded. Since my AR is 1:8 twist I've found that a 75 grain round works better than the more common 55g. I'm using 75g HPBT's (Hornady match) from Midway. I only wish these folks had an equivalent. I load 24.5g of Varget is giving nice tight 1 inch groups at 100 yards. I've found this brass a cut above some of the factory ammo I've bought and reused. It's a tad heavier (thicker) than the other stuff. Since I weigh each finished cartridge as a safety double check, I like having brass that has consistent weight. That's why I ordered a second 500 after I found the first 500 so consistent. I gave away all my other .223 brass so that my 1000 rounds are all Everglades. I'm taking this on a Prairie Dog expedition to SD next month, Lord willing. (Posted on 5/4/2017)

Great job Everglades. Very good brass for the buck and well worth the extra cost to process it ! For those who want to know, a 2000 piece order came to Oregon in 3 days. Overall condition was excellent. After checking 10 for size I started to load with no problem. After 50 I noticed my fingers getting a little greasy black so I ran the rest through my tumbler for an hour. Total count was 2028, about 10 had necks that had to be re-worked, 6 were bad leaving a +22. Great job Guy's ! I will order again when needed. Larry (Posted on 2/11/2017)

I orderd 500 pieces of 5.56 brass couldn't be happier. All of it was LC brass. Lots were 09&08. Not one bad one in batch. Keep up the good work on processed military brass.

Thanks Skip (Posted on 2/6/2017)
very nice brassReview by Jeff

I just received 2000. I've gone through 900. So far all is LC mostly 09. The whole box looks to be LC. Size and trim are good. Every random case I have checked fits perfectly in a head space gauge. Trim is mostly 1.750 with a few +.002 -.003. All that I did was clean primer pockets and used a primer pocket uniformer, just to check, deburr and dech the necks. A light tumble and they look like new. So far only 2 cases are unusable and 4 had necks bent a little that my size die fixed. I will be ordering more. Excellent brass and I didn't have to do all the work for a few pennies more. (Posted on 1/23/2017)

Properly cleaned, correct trim length, primer pockets swaged ok. Nice brass. My order was 1000pcs processed. Swaging and trimming 1000 of these cases is not my idea of fun so processed price was well worth it. (Posted on 1/8/2017)

I resently ordered 2500 of the processed brass and got to loading it. This brass is very good stuff. I took it out of the box and checked it for length and size. It was right on so I got to priming and loading. Everything went very smooth. It was so much easier than processing the brass myself and well worth the money.
Before this order I purchased 5000 unproscessed bass and did all the work myself, I won't do that again. Everglades ammo is the best. I've been a long time buyer and all orders have been great. THANKS EVERGLADES AMMO!!! (Posted on 12/6/2016)
excellent.Review by Fred
Overall Rating
Since finding Everglades Ammo i have stopped processing my own brass. I've purchased numerous calibers of either new or processed and their price is such a value for the product that its not worth my time to clean, sort, size and go through all the prep needed for my range brass.

Just got my latest 500 piece processed military 5.55 and its top notch. Tossed them in the tumbler as habit but wasn't needed. Checked sizes with my gauges and press on about a dozen cases, wasn't needed. primer pocket swage? Wasn't needed.

Excellent price for the value. (Posted on 11/16/2016)

You folks have done it again! Based on all my other very positive experiences with Everglades, I ordered 500 pcs of processed 5.56 brass. Holy Cow, it looks and functions like new. It really IS ready to load with NO problems feeding/loading/priming etc... Those annoying crimps are gone too. Awesome product & superb service; and this coming from a picky fellow. Thank you!

As a regular customer you folks continue to impress me with each order I place. My only complaint is the Florida sales tax I have to pay since I'm a resident.

The 5.56 preprocessed brass is an excellent deal. Clean, sized and ready to load. No damaged pieces and all nice & shiny.
And I'm not even going to complain about it taking me 10 minutes to open the bag from all the tape you sealed it with.
Once again, well done folks. (Posted on 8/20/2016)
