Not going to call you a liar, but I'd love to know how you can do that so cheaply.It costs me around £21 a hundred for 223 using bulk PPU fmjbt. For 308 I'd rather not know, I just kid myself it's cheap.
armo, £49.?? for 50 bullets is £1.00 per round.Just as a matter of interest, what's the economics of reloading? I just bought 50 rnds of .223 Powershok at £49.xx so 1 rnd = £1.25 for the sake of argument.
Discounting the kit cost, what would reloading a similar quality rnd cost, assuming using my empty cases?
I agree completely. Your last sentence says it all to me too.armo, £49.?? for 50 bullets is £1.00 per round.
Your 50 once fired cases you can sell here for @£10.
So 50 bullets for £40.00 = 80p per factory bullet (give or take manufacturer)
Leaving aside the cost of the press and dies.
If you buy the components in bulk to hand load, will cost around 40p-50p each. A good saving if sending hundreds down range.
But imho it is just part of our hobby and the satisfaction of improving the performance of your rifle..
Grassing that first beast with your own hand load will stay with you..
