I recently was cleaning out the bosses storage unit and he was going to throw away all these random casings. I brought them home and I haven't sorted them yet but there are a wide range of calibers from 22 up to some something bigger than a .444. No 50 cal from what I saw glancing at it.

Question is do I sort them and sell them that way or just sell them as scrap metal? Thank you for any advice.

Call your scrap yard and see what they're paying. Then figure how much more you can get by sorting it.

I would sort, keep what I can use, and sell the rest; but I am a reloader....

Also note what condition the majority are. If a lot of damaged or corroded then selling might be the best option.

There may be some uncommon, hard to find brass in there well worth sorting out.
