Thread: Is shooting PPU cheaper than reloading?

    Is shooting PPU cheaper than reloading?

    I want 3/4" at 100yds..I am getting it in .308(150g)SP and. 243(100g)SP with PPU,using a Sako 75 and a Sauer 202 respectively...with the price of PPU at £12/£16 for a box of 20 is it cheaper than reloading? What price will PPU be when we all have to go lead free I wonder??

    Serbia would have to comply with an EU Directive on a lead question! Enjoy it while we can that,s my view

    If you choose the components carefully, and reuse, or acquire some once used brass, it will be cheaper to reload, although marginal at £12.00 /20, and for the difference, I wouldn't bother, given the time, & effort it takes to reload.

    I by unprimed Winchester 7x57 or 6.5x55 for about $75/100 here. PPU loaded ammo is just about the same cost. I shoot the PPU for off-hand practice and reload the cases to meet my own performance requirements.~Muir

    I have used ppu in both .243 and .308. The last boxs I brought I paid £10.50 a box for .243 and £12 a box for .308.
    The seem ok, I haven't tried them in my 75 yet but fingers crossed.
    I did start reloading but I have got the time to homeload and these ppu are cheap.
    Is the lead ban a definitive

    A lead ban is being fought in the EU by Member State,s hunting organisations .....but the Green lobby want it....FC in the UK are going lead free,I understand,if I was a betting man....?

    it can be cheaper
    I got mine down to about 45-50p for .270 with a £50 investment in a lee loader and a couple of bits.
    the .222 is cheaper still with a 1/3rd of the powder and works out less than 30p a pop

    the choice of ammo is the best part of reloading and the PPU I tried in .243 and .222 didnt group that well
