A note on postage
Brass casings are fairly heavy for their size, while aluminum casings are very light in comparison. I have tried to strike a balance between product pricing, automatically calculated postage and actual postage costs. This means that depending on what you order, you will sometimes pay more and sometimes less than the actual postage.

A note on stamps
For deliveries to addresses in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland I often use old discount stamps ("Rabattfrimärken"). These are still valid and have very favourable terms, compared to new stamps, so are traded, bought and sold in the same way as other commodities. So if you recieve a letter with a single stamp that says 1,90 (SEK) then you should know that that's the original cost back in the 1980's and I have paid many times more for them today. But they cost less than the equivalent postage in today's stamps, so because of them I can offer lower postage to these countries than to other countries, even within the EU.

Additional policies

What condition are the bullet casings in?
Unless otherwise noted, all bullet casings are in good, used condition.
Short version:
All bullet casings are hand sorted, washed and checked.
Long version:
All bullet casings are used, they have been fired. They have been on the ground, some for longer than others. However...
All casings are hand sorted to remove dented and oval casings. They may have scratches, but are not deformed.
All casings have been washed to remove grease and gunpowder residue, but are not polished. Discolourations may occur (more often on some casings than on others) and there may still be minute amounts of gunpowder residue inside.

What does the "B" in a listing mean?
This is the "unless otherwise noted" mentioned above. B casings have small defects along the top rim, typically because of pinching and/or shaving occurring when the casing is ejected from some guns. Basically, if you only use the bottom half of the casing, this will not matter to you at all.

Are bullet casings legal?
All items, including bullet casings, are sold strictly as scrap metal / craft supplies, and are completely legal to buy and sell in Sweden. Please make sure that you abide by all laws and regulations in your country of residence. If you order an item that is regulated by law in your country of residence, you accept all responsibility.

Can the bullet casings be reloaded and made to fire?
Some of them can be, but not all, and they are NOT sold for this purpose. Some bullet casings require specialist equipment to be reloaded and to use the wrong type of equipment can be extremely dangerous! Plus, it is most likely illegal to make your own ammunition unless you have the proper licenses and / or permits. I strongly discourage anyone from trying to reload these casings. Bullet casings are sold strictly as scrap metal / craft supplies. If you try to do something illegal / stupid / dangerous you accept all responsibility.
