Some denied that micro stamping and registering of ammunition was an attack on the 2nd, now comes the DOD changing it's policy of selling used brass. With that amount of brass coming out of circulation the price of ammo will skyrocket. With two wars going, brass for reloaders was already hard to come by, now the government will make it nearly impossible.

Got that? From now on, remanufacturers of military brass will not be able to buy surplus brass from DOD--actually from Government Liquidators, llc.--the corporation that sells surplus materials for the U.S. government. At least, not in any form recognizable as once-fired brass ammunition.
Now all brass ammunition will have to be shredded, and sold as scrap.
