    ??WEIGHT of BRASS 5.56????

    I stumbled onto a place that has 5.56 once fired lake city brass in BULK.

    My ? is how many shells would be in 1 lb or how many in 10lbs.

    It is being sold by weight.

    Any help??

    50bmg, 865.26gr/ea, 8.1cases/#, 123.5#/1000

    All weights are uncleaned fired cases with the primer remaining.

    Individual case weights were derived using an average of mixed brass weights (except 50bmg)

    according to my scale a piece of LC brass with primer is about 6.26g. there are basically 454g per pound so 454/6.62 = 72.5 hope that helps you.
