5.56 Military Brass
This brass is cleaned, once fired, military 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.

Good brass...sizing and trim perfect...Minor imperfections...primer pockets could be cleaner and still had to run them thru primer pocket reamer.. all in all good buy! (Posted on 12/9/2019)

Bought 1000 5.56 cases, easily processed, and very few unserviceable. Nice to work with all American brass. We'll be back for more. Thanks Everglades Ammo. (Posted on 5/14/2019)
Bought a bag of 500 5.66Review by John 5.66
Overall Rating
Out of the 500 rounds 30 of them were to messed up some necks crushed. That's way i only gave it a 4. Besides that I would have gave it a 10. Will buy my brass from now on from Evergladesammo. Would recommend to anybody. (Posted on 3/17/2019)

Ordered 1000 of the 5.56 military brass to cut down for 300 Blackout casings. All but 6 out of the 1000 were LC 4 point crimped brass. The 4 point crimp leaves small jagged edges when the spent primer is removed and they remain even after being swaged. I removed those jagged edges with 100 degree Weldon countersink (just a light touch) which was an extra step in processing. There were also a few dinged ones as well, but all and all, not a bad bunch of brass for my purposes. This was my second order and will be ordering from Everglades again in the near future.

I inspect each case for major dents and since the brass is already full-length resized and primer Pockets swaged, all I do is chamfer the necks, then run it through the ball expander, no lube needed

Received brass in 3 days, very fast as I live in a rural community.
About 70 % lc brass and 30 % WMA.
66 pieces were to badly damaged for reload so cut them for 300 Blackout.
Very happy with Everglade and will purchase more in near future.
Thanks for being so prompt (Posted on 6/16/2018)

It says that it is predominantly LC and FC brass yet i ordered a thousand casings and i recieved predominantly WMA brass which is Winchester. I was looking specifically for LC brass. Not happy (Posted on 3/19/2018)
So Far.Review by boB D.

This is my second order from EverGlades. The first was .223-5.56 Brass. Ordered 1000, got 1016 usable cases. Haven't loaded any yet. De-primed cleaned again. Will review this order again after loading and firing. The second order was the 5.56 Brass. Ordered 1000 got 1027. Usable cases. Only 1 (1) cull out of the lot. My first order contained 7 different headstamps. This order only4. WMA, WCC, LC (Majority), and 1 REM .223 (How did that get in there? lol...) I will be ordering more from these people. I really like the fact that they are in Naples, Fl. I grew up in Punta Gorda. Now live in N.E. GA. Being FAMILY owned-operated is another PLUS in my book. If they've got it ORDER IT!!!!!!!!!

Awesome dealReview by Cody A

Ordered this it's all clean and usable, not 1 unusable case..I'll give you a break down of what I received
1 LIVE (unfired) LC ROUND I'm happy as a possum eating sh** and will be ordering another soon! I wish the package brass/bullet deals were a little easier to understand... Maybe it's just me but it a little confusing and I ended up ordering bullets somewhere else... I'm so happy with the brass that il try to figure out the combo deals here next time! You won't be disappointed with this brass (Posted on 2/7/2018)
Outstanding Customer Service & Great Brass/BulletsReview by Gordo

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)
