Thread: Ammo Cost

    Ammo Cost

    I know that it's a regular topic on the forum but, thurs I puchased some rounds.. . Rem243 75g BT @ 18 +vat and Sako .308 150g @ 20+vat which I thought was reasonable. But I also needed 12g shells , 6.45 + vat for 34grm N0 5 Express. Damn I didn't know shotty ammo had gone up so much!! I'm sure I only payed 4.65 inc, a box last season! I know everything's gone up, but the shells seem to have gone up a lot more than the rounds! Am I paying too much, or is just under 8 abox about the going rate??

    That seems a good deal, last time I bought them they were 32 from Graham's in Inverness.

    relaoding is the way to go with rifles, if you shot more that 100 round in cal per year, lee kit plus die cost 150( ,Lee Precision: Breech Lock Challenger Kit) tray Of primes 3 box of bullet fron 15 to 45 per 100 powder 45 ( 180 loads per pound in .243 size case)

    so you pretty much set up for cost of 200 factory
