    If I find any, it goes to the scrap metal yard. For about $1.70/pound, lately. (Here's a link: https://www.scrapmonster.com/scrap-p...-scraps/26/1/1.)

    I once acquired 1000 once-fireds which included a dozen or so Amercs. I had seen on the internet that they are only good for recycling. I don't follow advice well and I tend to only learn from mistakes.

    I have never found any of those Amercs but I just loaded some 45acp recently and i ran into MaxxTech brass which was doing pretty much the same thing walls were collapsing like that. Recycle bucket it is.
