With shooting and reloading supplies remaining in short supply, maintaining those supplies has become more critical than ever.
Even if you’re not a reloader, picking up your brass may now be worth the effort. Prices for clean yellow brass in my area are now in the $2.25 to $2.50 range per pound.
This means that a five-gallon bucket of spent brass (weighing somewhere between 65 and 70 pounds) should provide a return of up to $175. That buys extra ammo, targets, and even a new gun before long.
My point? A new brass catcher has hit the market that is streamlined and works without a flaw.
The Brass Goat brass catcher is one of a kind. I was able to put this device to the test at a recent outdoor writers’ conference and must say the device never failed or impeded operation of the AR style platform rifles we tested them on.
The streamlined profile of the device also makes shooting your AR with this brass catcher a breeze.
Made in the USA, the Brass Goat is a plastic injection molded device that attaches to any standard AR mag-well and simply put, catches your brass in a nice little plastic hopper. The Brass Goat will work on any AR-15 platform, with the exception of left-handed rifles.
The company is working on a left-handed model in addition to a model for the AR-10 platform in the coming months. It will hold up to 30 rounds of .223 or 5.56 NATO brass, and with an MSRP of $39.95 it won’t take long to recoup your money with brass that you may have left on the ground in the past.
For the price of this product and the ever-increasing value of brass today, it’s worth the investment just so you don’t have to bend over and pick up your brass any longer. The Brass Goat comes in several colors and even a model that fits the S&W MP 15-22 for .22LR.
With Christmas right around the corner the Brass Goat would make a great gift idea for any shooting enthusiast, plus make the recipient some cash back in return! For more information on the Brass Goat, check them out at brassgoat.com.
