What's your plan? Do you want to reload them? Are you trying to sell or trade?

I thought 50 cal guns were outlawed in California?
My brother has a 50 Sharps but he already has plenty of brass.

I was looking to sell them. It had not occurred to me that it may not be legal. I found the info below. Please disregard pending further information.

12278. (a) As used in this chapter, a ".50 BMG rifle" means a
center fire rifle that can fire a .50 BMG cartridge and is not
already an assault weapon pursuant to Section 12276, 12276.1, or
12276.5, or a machinegun, as defined in Section 12200.
(b) As used in this chapter, a ".50 BMG cartridge" means a
cartridge that is designed and intended to be fired from a center
fire rifle and that meets all of the following criteria:
(1) It has an overall length of 5.54 inches from the base to the
tip of the bullet.
(2) The bullet diameter for the cartridge is from .510 to, and
including, .511 inch.
(3) The case base diameter for the cartridge is from .800 inch to,
and including, .804 inch.
(4) The cartridge case length is 3.91 inches.
(c) A ".50 BMG rifle" does not include any "antique firearm," nor
any curio or relic as defined in Section 178.11 of Title 27 of the
Code of Federal Regulations.
(d) As used in this section, "antique firearm" means any firearm

jnrdesertrats, the .50 Browning Machine Gun (BMG) cartridge is way different than the .50 Sharps cartridge so apparently the California law does not pertain to it.

As Highwall says, your brass is not included in that law, which is very specific. I understand this to be empty brass so it could be mailed. How much do you have? I have a friend that might be interested. You can PM me with your phone or email and I will put you two together.

My buddy has an ammo factory but he doesn't have any customers that shoot this round so he didn't sell it through me.
