Here's mine using my own brass-

$140 bucks for 500 API projectiles
$74 bucks for an 8 pound powder
$111 bucks for 500 primers.

So if I load 1000 rounds of 50 BMG I can do it for 83 cents a round.


Your not factoring in the cost of the brass. I get about the same prices for my 50 BMG stuff but its about a 1.30 for the first round and you save the price of brass for every reload after. :D

I'm currently not reloading, I'm buying new 9mm target ammo at around $220.00 for 1000 rounds.

If I start reloading, what can I expect my cost to be for 1000 rounds? Assume brass is free.

I'm reloading 9MM for $5.00/box right now, that's $100.00/K. I could do it a little cheaper if I changed a couple of things, maybe down to $4.50/box but I haven't calculated that yet as I'm happy with what I've got now.

Can you guys tell me how much can I get a basic, decent quality reloader for .308 win and how much will it cost per round to assemble such caliber?

About 45¢ apiece to load the cartridges although you could do it a bit cheaper if you worked at it a bit looking for better deals.

The press kit here is $104.98 plus shipping: https://factorysales.com/html/xcart/cat ... ress2.html

And a set of dies for $22.48: https://factorysales.com/html/xcart/cat ... es-p5.html

Add a caliper for around $25.00 and some primers, powder and bullets and a reloading manual and you're good to go.

How will this load compare to Brown Bear at basically the same price, in terms of quality and accuracy?

PS. Considering that I never reloaded before. :)

It could be comparable quality, or if you put some time into it, much better. You have to do some experimentation to find the load that works best in your rifle. But once you've found it you'll have top quality ammo for a good price because it's customized to what you want. That's something you can never get from factory ammo.

Are the prices to reload about the same for .270, 300wsm or 30-06?

Im looking for a bolt action rifle in .223 (cheaper to shoot) or possibly 308 (easier to find ammo), but if Im going to start reloading I might as well consider the calibers above if the cost is about the same.

Thanks

How depressing... I was all excited when I saw the prices in the first thread until I realized it was from 2006! Someone delete this thread for it is killing our dreams :)

Prices on components have gone up since 06, but so has ammo. The cost differential is still about the same.

For 9mm
$29 for 1k primers
$85 1k 124g HP from Barry's
$22 1lb blue dot
I reuse my brass but I can get 1k rounds of 9mm for $15

So I can reload 1k rounds for about $130.
