I am selling a 6 PPC rifle and need to sell about 90 Lapua 220 Russian cases that were sized by Bruno to 6 PPC. I do not have a CLUE what would be a reasonable price. These cases were shot 2 times.

Anyone offer a suggestion on what to ask for them?

If I were you, I would give them to the person that buys the rifle. Ryan

Ryan's suggestion is on point. I wouldn't use brass fire formed in a chamber that wasn't identical to mine, that is, the same reamer would have to have been used on both barrels. There are a bunch of different reamers for the 6PPC. Check out Pacific Tool and Gauge for some of the ones they have on file. Or, ask Bruno which reamer he used and advertise it that way. Try 66 cents each. :)

90 twice fired cases are worth very little except to the person who has the chamber they were fired in.

I'll bet they would become like new again and not care which reamer made the chamber or sizing die, assuming the rear of the chamber is the same size in both chambers.

Therein lies the rub.

I have to agree with whats been said.

The only sensible thing to do is not to seperate the brass from the rifle as its not worth much to anyone except who owns the rifle it has been shot in.

If throwing it in the deal is not an option, perhaps the new owner could copensate by handing you 100-200 bullets for the brass.

Throw in the brass as part of the deal. At the very least, you will make a friend, which is worth one heck of a lot more than the few dollars you could get for the cases........jackie
