US military selling spent shredded ammo brass to China
I received a copy of this email today.

Subject: Fw: Brass

>>> Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in
>>> America. They sell 9mm, .45, ..223 ammunition. They normally buy
>>> spent brass from the US Department of Defense. Spent brass is "one
time
used"
>>> shell cases used by our Military for training purposes.

>>> They buy the brass, recondition it, and then reload the
>>> brass for resale to Law Enforcement, Gun Clubs, Gun Shops, and
>>> stores like Wal-Mart. They normally buy 30,000 lbs of spent brass at
a
time.

>>> This week the DoD wrote a letter to the owner of Georgia
>>> Arms and informed him that from now on the DoD will be destroying
>>> the spent brass, shredding it. It will no longer be available to the

>>> ammo makers, unless they buy it in a scrap shredded condition (which

>>> they have no use for). The shredded brass is now going to be sold by

>>> the DoD to China as scrap metal, after the DoD pays for it to be
>>> shredded. The DoD is selling the brass to China for less money than
>>> the ammo makers have been paying, plus the DoD has to pay to have
>>> the brass shredded and do the accounting paperwork.

>>> This sure helps the economy now doesn't it? Sell cheaper
>>> to China, and do not sell at all to a proven US business. Any hidden

>>> agenda working here? Obama going after the Firearms Industry and
>>> our ammunition!!
>>> The Georgia Arms owner even related a story that one of
>>> his competitors had already purchased a load of brass last week. The

>>> DoD contacted him this week and said they were sending someone over
>>> to make sure it was destroyed. Shell cases he had already bought!

>>> The brass has no value to the ammo maker if it is
>>> destroyed/shredded/melted. The ammo manufacturer only uses the empty

>>> brass cases to reload different calibers, mainly .223 bullets.

>>> The owner of Georgia Arms says that he will have to lay
>>> off at least half of his 60 workers, within 2-3 months if the DoD
>>> will no longer sell spent brass cases to the industry. Georgia Arms
>>> has 2-3 months of inventory to use, by summer they're out.

>>> If the Reloading Industry has to purchase new manufacture

>>> brass cases, then the cost of ammunition will double or even triple,

>>> plus Obama want to add a 500% tax on each shell.

>>> You can read the information and see the DoD letter to
>>> Georgia Arms here:

>>> The Shootist Site

>>> If you're not outraged at what this administration is
>>> doing you should be! Be Afraid! Be Very Very Afraid! Get involved!
>>> It's Your Freedom and Our Country They're Stealing! If You Fail to
>>> Act Now, there may not be a Free United States tomorrow!

>>> I implore you to get involved and forward this to as many

>>> people you can. Contact your legislators and put them on notice,
>>> We're fed up with what's going on! This is a call to action.

Its the numbers on the case thing.
They cant recycle them into new cases because they aren't serial numbered.So they are selling them for scrap metal.
Its just a matter of the military trying to abide by laws even before they have passed.
