Default Once Fired Brass

Got this message from Orest. CMP does sell reloadable brass.

4SBLANKBRASS at $25 a box is for once fired brass from .30-06 blank ammo,
not from once fired .30-06 M2 Ball. We do not know if it reloadable for
bullets, but some customers are buying it to produce blank ammo.

The correct item number for brass from once fired M2 Ball is 4S3006BRASS at
$40 per box. This ammo is reloadable.

Thumbs down

This, in fact, is NOT reloadable for ammunition, only for blanks. This has been discussed before.

Blank cases are not subject to the same quality controls or inspection standards as service ammunition, so cups having major or even critical category defects such as intermediate draw scratches, nonmetallic inclusions or laminations routinely get through. I would not attempt to load blank cases for any bulleted ammunition.

You guys are talking past each other. What the OP has posted includes the quote from OREST as the last part,

"The correct item number for brass from once fired M2 Ball is 4S3006BRASS at $40 per box. This ammo is reloadable."

I added the bolt type. I have purchased over 2.5K of this once fired brass and it is reloadable and it is (was) sold by the CMP. But, it is not currently listed on the e-store and hasn't been for quite some time.

The brass currently offered is BLANK BRASS and should not be reloaded except for further use as BLANKS
