Ammo Brass peices per pound

I pulled this off a forum, who's poster had found it elsewhere.  I sell a lot of used brass and it is difficult to price and make everyone happy. Some folks are elated to get the brass others think you should give it to them. Maybe I'll stick to selling NEW brass LOL then let the sparks fly!
