Not that i do it to save money.
Last week i costed some more powder Bullets and primers for my 6.5. being a bit sad i worked out what it would cost me per round for the finished round.
Vhit N160 @ £70 kg
100 sierra 120gn's £26
Fedral GM210's £40 per 1000
at these prices i can load for the 6.5x55 for 52p a round
I can load for the .223 with a 55gn V max for around 24p a round
This doesn't include buying brass as i have enough to last a lifetime.
I thought it might be of interest to someone thinking of branching out into loading.
Because i load my own i shoot more developing loads therefore i shoot better.
Not sure i'd want to shoot to many crows/rabbits with the 223 if i was tied to factory ammo.
