DoD Destroying Brass

This isn’t good news for reloaders.  Check out this article from Maine Hunting Today.

Recently it has been determined that fired munitions of all calibers, shapes and sizes have been designated to be Demil code B. As a result and in conjunction with DLA’s current Demil code B policy, this notice will serve as official notification which requires Scrap Venture (SV) to implement mutilation as a condition of sale for all sales of fired munitions effective immediately. This notice also requires SV to immediately cease delivery of any fired munitions that have been recently sold or on active term contracts, unless the material has been mutilated prior to sale or SV personnel can attest to the mutilation after delivery. A certificate of destruction is required in either case.

It’s bad enough Clinton screwed us out of surplus ammo.  Now it appears Obama will screw us out of even the components.  Brass is already scarce enough without this.  See the whole thing.

    DoD, not Justice.

    Check with the NRA; rumor has it that they’re getting DoD to recant.

  2. Chuck B. says:

    Perhaps this also has something to do with the recent DoD order to destroy surplus ammo cans, like the ones for belted .50 caliber rounds that used to cost between 5 and 10 bucks each at the gun shops and shows.

    If anyone can think of a legal basis to challenge this, please pass it on. Right now, we don’t seem to have any options.

  4. Steve (CT) says:

    I read some discussion about this on the gun boards last night & there was some dispute about the authenticity.

  5. Philbert says:

    Re-use is much more environmentally friendly than recycling. I thought Obama was going to be all about saving the planet?

    It looks like authenticity may indeed be questioned…

    I can’t include a link for whatever reason and am tired of trying.
