    todays cost of components

    Just picked up some components today from reloading solutions, cost of my ammo at todays prices is

    .223 50 gn nosler ballistic tip, 27gn H4895, CCI primer = 40p
    22-250 55gn nosler ballistic tip, 35gn H4895, CCI primer = 44p
    .243 70gn ballistic tip, 39gn H4895, CCI primer = 55p
    .308 125 gn ballistic tip, 49gn H4895, CCI primer = 73p

    I havenít counted the brass cost (add 20p per round for premium brass used 5 times) and the .243 round would have been 5p cheaper each if Iíd bought a box of 250.

    Thanks Gary,
    That's about the average price but am surprised as Aftab normally does better prices than most.

    I was at IWA this year and lots of dealers said Afganistan was causing the component price hikes (I heard that Pakistan cannot find .50BMG on the world market for instance).
    Whether it was the talis or the yanks fault they did not say (who does spray and pray best).

    As near as I can work it out, using cheaper components, such as Hornady bullets and PPU brass, my 243 loads work out at 49p a pop. Thats much cheaper than Federal factory loads at over £1 each. (last cartridge box I picked out of the bin at the range I use had a £24 price sticker on it! Ouch)
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    i have roughly worked out my 6.5x55 costs me 82 pence a go !

    thats based on using RL22 at £35 per lb, hornady 140gn sst's at £35 per 100 and cci 200 large rifle primers at £30 per 1000 , but excluding brass (still using federal factory cases ).

    which compared to federal , norma or lapua factory loads , is a considerable saving and also taking the price of the beast once shot !

    but if i was buying brass in the price would go up to £1.10 per round for s&b brass (cheep enough to reload them until there knackered , then throw them on the scrap heap)

    just my quid's worth !

    cheers lee
