Case counts please..?

Recommended Posts

I found a bunch of 38 special cases in my sorting & cleaning area that I will never use and want to sell.  My question is how many 38 special cases will fit in a USPS medium  and also in a large flat USPS rate box? I have found the cases per pound, bag, and 5 gal pail however not the flat rate boxes...

Thanks in advance from IGG!

If you have a scale, it’d be easiest to weigh. Weigh a known quantity (20-30), divide oz by number of cases.

Tar the scale a container and fill your box. Empty the box to the container, add up all the once’s, then divide by the above number your mathed out.

Boom, case count.

I think weighing .38 brass is not a very accurate way to count unless they are all the same brand.  38 cases vary dramatically in weight unlike most other caliber cases.  If youre not trying to be exact, take any cup or scoop & fill it.  Count how many fit & use that to fill your box.  Fairly close.

No exact and quick method, but for many years weight has been The Standard

or a PO box.   :)

I asked about a PO Box --- a medium flat rate box... Surely someone has shipped 38 special in a Med fr box and has a pretty darn close idea of the count..?

Just saying...
