Lake City 5.56mm NATO Brass - 500 Pieces
- Hand sorted to ensure the highest quality brass for reloading
- Sourced from US military or other professional ranges
- Can be reloaded several times to save you money
Our 500 piece package of once-fired Lake City 5.56 NATO brass is purchased directly from the United States Military, the Department of Defense or other professional shooting ranges in bulk. The 500 pieces of Lake City brass can be purchased with a polished finish that removes tarnish(es) or in a condition typical of range brass casings.
All US Military once-fired 5.56x45mm brass has a crimped primer and an additional step must be taken to process the brass. The primer pocket of each piece of Lake City brass must be swaged or reamed with the correct tools to remove the crimp. Each casing only needs to be swaged or reamed with the initial reloading of the ammunition.
Lake City brass is manufactured at the Lake City Ammunition Army Plant (LCAAP) located near Independence, Missouri, and is the only small arms manufacture operating under the Department of Defense (DoD). The plant is currently run by Northrup Grumman Innovation Systems and produces over 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition each year.
*All of our once fired Lake City 5.56mm brass is inspected to remove severely damaged or defective cases. Buyers can expect to receive cartridges that are dented or have other blemishes that do not affect the overall performance of the brass and are still reloadable.
