Has Anyone Ever Bid On Stuff Like This ??

600 pounds of 5.56 MM brass, and the opening bid is just $25 bucks. I don't think just anyone can bid and buy. Does anyone have the skinny on these type of government auctions? Man, even if it went for $200 or more, that's a steal!

I've read on other fora ("forums") about people who have picked up mil-surp trucks and trailers, and so far as I know,t hey are open to anyone who wants to bid and can arrange the pickup of the goods if/when you win.

I've not an expert, but have done some in-person and a fair amount of on-line auctioning.

The $25 is just a suggested opening bid.  My rough guess is you're looking at around 40,000 rounds +/- a 10%.   What's once fired .223 brass go for?   What's scarp brass go for?

They said, "Winning bids require an End User Certificate". I'm wondering what that consists of?

Might mean you will certify you do not intend to resell it?

If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Normally, an "EUC" is used for international sales of arms and ammunition, it certifies that the buying nation actually is the buyer .
Requiring one in this case seems like Govt trying to discourage private purchase.

That was my take as well. The government under this, (and most other administrations), would rather see this stuff go for a lower price and be melted down, rather than see a citizen use it as intended for reloading. After all, it's not as if it was their money that purchased it to begin with.

This admin would rather it be shredded and cast into hell than see a citizen shooter use it.
