We are a small family owned business run by husband and wife John & Jayme Bowman. We supply customers with the Cadillac of Brass, Lake City once-fired 5.56 Military Surplus Brass converted to 300 AAC Blackout Brass. We supply Brass to competition shooters, individuals, as well as business looking to supply their customers with a high quality brass, made by hand not a robotic assembly line.
We offer .223/5.56 to 300 Blackout Conversion Services. We charge $.15 each. They are fully processed (swaged, deprimed, trimmed, and sized, and polished) and we usually have a 2 day turnaround from the day we receive it. We will do any headstamp you like as long as they are boxer primed* (TAA,GFL, Lapua, ICC, IMI are too thick and do not make good 300 brass, FC military also tends to be thicker depending on your chamber you may need to chamfer the brass, but the commercial FC/Speer are ok, it just has very tight pockets....We recommend you gauge the brass on your end to make sure they pass or don't if you send us mixed headstamp brass) All you need to do is mail the brass to us and we take it from there, we bill you based on the finished count when we are done making it, plus shipping back. It's that easy!!!
* We do charge $3 each for broken decapping pins. Please check your brass for all boxer primer.

Extra Touches- Case neck and overall dimensions checked throughout processing with a Sheridan Engineering Gauge to ensure that the cases function in even the tightest SAAMI chambers, and we use digital calipers to ensure a consistent length of 1.355 +/- .005 We also batch check cases with a Swage Gauge to make sure they are not over or under swaged. Primer pockets batch checked with Primer Pocket gauge during processing as well. They are slightly tighter than commercial .223 but will give longer life before pocket becomes loose. You can always ream them if you prefer which some do.
