Most ranges have a policy... you can only pickup your own brass, unless given the OK by your neighboring shooters (but not always). I highly doubt any ranges will allow you to come in and pilfer their brass.

You could try doing your own BLM cleanup But unless you get there shortly after a shoot, it will most likely be tarnished crap.

Police ranges are the best bet. Better make friends though!

Not sure where you're located, just call your local range and see if you can pick some up.

Go to an outdoor range. Shoot your gun and proceed to pick up your own brass. Use a coffee can and pick up a little extra that is lying around. I usually bring home 4X more than I shoot.

Good advice, except you might want to ask your neighbors whether they want their brass or not.

When duck season begins, you can go to those state and federal refuges on "non-shooting" days and pick up shotgun shells too. Fish & Game might be happy to see less trash left in these facilities. We used to have a garbage can full of 12 guage shells a few years ago...

I pick up all can at NF shooting sites. Rarely is anyone there, and many people just leave their brass and trash on the ground. I usually get 308, 223, 30-30, .45, .44, .40, .38, 9mm, in good quantities. I also pick up the shotgun shells and target trash (TVs, phone books, computers, etc) just to make the place look better. Seems like once you clean a place up once, it tends to stay cleaner. So take your trash and leave your brass, I will pick it up.

I was at Burro Canyon a couple days ago, and a Sniper that worked with Orange County was shooting. he went through about 500 rounds in the time I was there. He saw my buddy picking up his 30 30 and called him crazy! I laughed and asked why, then he asked, "What are you going to do with that, sell it as scrap??? Needless to say, i got a bunch of 30 06, .308 and 223 once fired brass after he left!

To the OP, I recommend trying wherever you go shooting first. Whether it is at the indoor range, outdoor range, National Forest, etc. You may want to ask the range officer or check for signs at the ranges first tho. Some ranges want whatever brass that falls on the floor cuz they make extra cash from it. If not, don't forget to ask the shooter next to you... I remember someone picking up my brass and I told him I reload/keep my brass. He obviously didn't like it and threw my brass back on the floor... like I just insulted his grandmother or something. Maybe he figured I should have told him before he started picking up my brass behind me... dunno

Anyways, then just check the phone book for other ranges, and ask/talk to other people at the range. Some of them shoot at different places... where you can also pick-up more brass. Be creative I was talking to one guy that was shooting at the range and he said he also shoots at his uncles ranch but he doesn't reload. I told him I reload... among other things. Guess what... the next time I saw him he had 2 big money bags full of brass for me... and I got another place to shoot and a hunting buddy to boot. To this day, he calls me up to give me brass and shoot the bull.

"Ask... and ye shall receive!" Just ask, cuz... "Shy kids don't get fed"

All the places I normally pick up brass in the NF is getting pretty lean. More competition and less people shooting.

Both indoor ranges in my area will not let you pick up your brass.
The would rather sort and sale in back to guys like me that reload!
Awhile back on of these ranges made me dump all the brass out of my range bag back on the range floor before the would give me my membership card back.

Screw them find another range, I think ranges that are like that should change there ways if you pay for the brass that you are shooting than it is yours to take back home with you. I'm sure someone could rase a legal issue with "Brass Ownership", and their minds would quickly change. But than again I have never and will never shoot at a range like that.

Just don't be "That Guy" that hordes around you and talking with you just to watch you eject your shells as he's practically catching them hot out of the gun. If a guy is shooting a pile of brass and making no attempt to pick it up, ASK FIRST, then proceed to picking it up once you've made your effort.

+1 At one of my outings at Angeles, I had to shoot 10 rounds pick up shoot another 10 rounds and pickup because If I did not, the guys next to me would sweep my stuff and theirs. WTF. It was my worst Angeles outing ever. I had to argue with them to leave my ammo alone. That day, I shot like 500 rounds of 9mm and walked out with about 100 brass casings

At Angeles the rangemasters don't have a problem with anyone picking up brass from the dirt in front of the shooting benches. They can't exactly sweep the dirt after all. But don't touch anything in those brass buckets!

watch out for the old man at angeles, dude with the mustache and a shade of gray hair, skinny guy. I notice he likes to take people's brass. I've actually sat back and watch him walk back and forth collecting a guy shooting 308 brass, and when i confronted him about it, the dude try to blame us for not cleaning up our brass! Well afterward he left us alone and started picking up another shooter's brass at the far end.
