thats not bad considering the average prrice per round is now .25-.30 cents a shot and that doesnt include shipping.angus6 said:I'm looking at .186 a round next week when bullets arrive , and figure .132 a round when my casting molds from a group buy arrive
So wait until people stop panicking and prices come down and availability is up. I am getting into reloading now not necessarily for cost but because I have guns in odd calibers like 9mm Largo and 7.7 Jap that when ammo panicking is not going on is hard to find. Some are expensive too. A bought a box of 7.7 Jap a few years back for $40 for 20 rounds of Norma.I recently got into reloading too. Finding the components is a little challenging, and I from what I see available around here, it's not cheaper to reload 7.62 for me. The cheapest projectiles I have seen in stock recently were like $40 ish for 100, so that's 0.40 right there. A pound of powder is around 35ish, and at around 17 gr, that's about 0.08. Primers are like gold. I picked up a hundred for $9, so that's about 0.09 each. Then you have the brass. Mine was given to me from a friend, but I only have 100ish. So with free brass I'm at 0.57 CPR. Now, if I can find cheaper projectiles, or primers, that obviously comes down.
But here's how I look at it. I can
buildassemble a glock or an AR. I've built AKs. I should build my own ammo too, and it gives me more knowledge, and I can customize rounds so that they are more accurate than I am.
