Im making a new load up for my 25-06. Im almost at the end of the tub of powder tu7000 which I thought didnt last very long, so I decide to work out how many load I get from the lb. Well here goes!
48.5 grn = 3.18grms
500grms divided by 3.18 = 157 loads
£25 per tub divided by 157 = 16p
I went on and added head 22p + 16p = 38p
add a primer 3p + 38p = 41p!!!
I didnt add brass but if I was it would cost 36p for the 1st bang then it would work out back to 41p!! I suppose you could say 6 reloads from a cartridge that would be 6p per bang so each load would cost 47p result!
Preliminary tests today are showing that the rifle is going to shoot 1/2" groups at about 2840fps. I had a few hicups but Ive ironed them out and have another 6 sets of 3 to try.
What does your powder or load work out at?
