Cases are fully processed and ready to load. Visually and machine inspected. Full length resized. Primer pockets are swaged to remove military crimp and brass is trimmed to SAAMI spec. Cases are inspected for cracks, foreign objects and ringers. Brass is re-cleaned and deburred after processing. Boat tail projectiles will load fine but it may be necessary to run an expander ball for very square base (non-boat tail or non-tapered) projectiles.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Everglades Ammo FAQ! Here you'll find answers to our most asked questions. Still can't find quite what you're looking for, or have something we should know? Contact Us Here.
We're happy to help!
How is your brass cleaned?
Most of our brass is cleaned in commercial vibratory machinery with non-abrasive
ceramic media and brass-safe water and soap solution.
This process leaves a very clean, dust free product that is great for loading.
Some small batch brass is cleaned with traditional dry media and brass safe polish.
Where is this brass sourced?
Most of our fired range brass is acquired from private, public and law enforcement ranges.
It is then sorted and cleaned in our warehouse.
What are "pulled bullets"?
Pulled bullets are bullets that have been loaded in to a case and then removed.
Because they are not ‘new’, we can offer them at a discounted price.
We purchase bullets from companies that specialize in this procedure.
Additionally, we always thoroughly inspect pulled bullets to make sure they are in
excellent condition before we offer them for sale.
Do you sort brass by headstamp?
Some brass is sorted by headstamp and/or primer pocket size.
This will be clearly stated in the product description.
Otherwise, please assume brass is random mixed headstamp governed by incoming brass supply.
What does the Bullet Version mean?
The versioned bullets are a way for us to differentiate bullets with similar characteristics.
For example, a 223 55gr FMJ. We often have two or three types of this bullets available.
Even though the main description is the same, each version has slightly different profile and
consistency characteristics. You can use the price, product description and reviews to help you
decide which one is right for you. When you need more bullets, the version number will allow you to
reorder the same bullets consistently.
What does "FMJ", "JHP" etc. mean?
We use these terms to categorize our bullets:
BT - Boat Tail
CMJ* - Complete Metal Jacket
FMJ - Full Metal Jacket
FP - Flat Point
JHP - Jacketed Hollow Point
JSP - Jacketed Soft Point
LRN - Lead Round Nose
RN - Round Nose or Rounded Nose for JHP Style Bullets
SWC - Semi Wadcutter
SP - Spire Point
* Some companies use the term CMJ and Plated interchangeably. We do not.
CMJ bullets are true Jacketed bullets that have an additional jacket covering the exposed lead.
All of our Plated Bullets will clearly be listed as such in the name and product description.
