I just recently purchased cases through this Ebay seller...

Seller User ID: tinman1165

David is his first name I believe.

I purchased 1000 cases at $139.00.
So, I ordered them and paid for it with pay pal. David actually was able to save money on the shipping so he refunded me some dollars!!!
I couldnt believe it!!........Plus, I had them 5 days later.

I want to thank this forum for letting me know about David, and I also of course thank David for being such a fine representative of the Firearm owning public, and I am sure a member of this fine forum.

You can trust the info you recieve on this forum.

I just recieved 500 for tinman1165. He refunded me about $ 1.00 for shipping and I recieved mine in 3 days. He also included an extra 15 cases in a separate bag.

Ok, OK, I caved to peer pressure and just bought 1500 empties so I can start my 55gr reloading projects. Thanks to parlier61 for the tip.

No prob guys, I am merely passing on the things I have learned from some other member from this forum.

It is awesome to have this level of support for a handgun, through this forum and its members...I bought my five seven before knowing about all of you.
At my shop we will be singing the praises of this forum....for sure!

Like I have posted dozens of times, I have bought 30,000 pieces of brass from tinman on ebay. His prices are ok, the shipping was included in the sale price (I bought them 2.5k at a time), and I got my brass in 3 days.

I can't praise him enough.

Current price is $159 per 1000. Is that OK? Any other sources?

$159 for 1k pieces works out to 15.9 cents per piece, which is a little steep for my tastes, but I've seen it a LOT higher. When I bought mine from tinman it was $299 (shipped) for 2500 pieces, or 11.9 cents per piece.

If he is selling the 2.5k lots I would highly recommend getting it in that quantity, even if you have to go in on it with someone, just to get the price break.

Brass is still a little difficult to find, so its a good idea to get it while you can. Sooner or later it will get cheaper, with Fiocchi producing lots of it and all the new PS90's on the market, but until then it still sels for a premium.

I took your advice and ordered from tinman1165. Ditto on the praise, my best ebay experience for rapid delivery.
