I am thinking about using a lawn sweeper to pick up brass on a grass covered range.

Since I don't own a lawn sweeper I will have to rent one, but that's cheaper than buying one.

What do you think?

As long as it doesn't use a rotating blade to suck 'em up.

I have one that pulls behind my mower. I tried that on my range and it didn't work. Picked up everything but the brass.

I've seen folks use the Garden Weasel style ones for pecans. Don't see why it wouldn't work for brass.

Can't help you this time around, but going forward, lay down some netting with holes small enough to catch brass so you can just pull it all in for collection next time.

I personally use a tarp, but I'm looking at a 100 yard, range with an 80 ft. target line. And I only get out there once or twice a week.

The one on the Dillon site works unless grass is deep. Over the years several versions have been made. The ones for most pecans are spaced too wide for handgun brass.

Look up ammobroom.com
works like a charm.
its very similiar to the garden weasel but closer tines for the cases.
Also comes with an attachment to hang on a 5 gallon paint pail and you don't have to bend over to empty it into the bucket.

The pecan picker tines are too widely spaced. They make one with closer tines for spent cases at about double or more the price. The net deals on a camera tripod work well if you have a consistent ejection pattern.

I'll have to check the one we have at the range, thought it was your standard pecan picker but it could have been the ammobroom.
