I've been eyeballing a comprehensive list that's collaborated by all of us members to what the cost is for reloading. Now I'm not factoring in the tools to reload, just the components. I've noticed a few threads scattered around that have this information such as: https://www.northwestfirearms.com/threads/reloading-cost-spreadsheet.65537/ This thread is 5 years old though so if we get this going maybe it can be stuck to the top of this sub-forum. The idea is simple. I'll provide a basic layout and when posts are added with the information I will do my best to update this first post with the information provided. The benefits of this is to have all costs so if I wanted to get into reloading a caliber I could look here and see who has a similar bullet/load and I can estimate from there. Sounds simple enough right? Share your most cost effective reloading rounds. It helps sometimes to specify current pricing on the powder, primers. No reason to dwell on what they were of yesteryear, that doesn't help anyone new to the reloading scene. That's part of the reason why I have the dates by the listings. If your reloading costs are from 1970 and they haven't changed, then I'll put 1970 by your name. *************************************************** Template: (Caliber) Bullet Weight (quantity purchased) at $xx.xx (cost per bullet) We will assume recycled brass (or you can specify your brass price per piece) Total cost per round: $xx.xx *************************************************** PISTOL: .380 9mm 9x19 Dyjital on 5/1/2016 124gr (1000) $62.75 = $.0625 (T&B Bullets - Cast Lead) Total cost per round: $0.106 Tarster on 5/2/2016 RMR 115gr bullets 1000 (78$) Cost per bullet $.16 No brass in this cost Benchrest 5/1/2016 115gr Berrys @ $70 per K = 0.07 CSB-1 @ $18# = 0.01 S&B 1K @ $20 = 0.02 Cost per round: $.10 Reno911 on 9/7/2016 Extreme Bullets @ $90 per/1000 ($.09) Powder Titegroup @ $.01 per charge Primer Wolf SP's @ $.0177 Cost per round: $.11 .38 Special Dyjital on 5/1/2016 158gr (500) $42 = $.084 (Badman Bullets - Cast Lead) Total cost per round: $0.123 .357 Magnum Dyjital on 5/1/2016 158gr (500) $42 = $.084 (Badman Bullets - Cast Lead) Total cost per round: $0.135 .40 S&W Dyjital on 5/1/2016 140gr (500) $44 = $.088 (Badman Bullets - Cast Lead) Total cost per round: $0.136 .44 Magnum Dyjital on 5/1/2016 240gr (100) $26 = $.26 (Hornady XTP) Total cost per round: $0.37 .45 ACP Tarster on 5/02/2016 RMR 230gr Bullets 1000 ($124) Cost per bullet $.18 No brass in this cost .45 Long Colt .454 Casul .500 S&W Rifle: .222 .223 Tarster on 5/2/2016 Hornady V-max 55gr per 1000 ($19) Cost per bullet $.33 No Brass in this cost .243 7MM-08 P7id10T on 6/1/2016 Hornady .284 139gr Interlock, 500 on "Get Loaded" rebate, $8 shipping, 2¢/ea LC 1x fired 7.62 brass, reformed, $100/500 FTF, 6 reloads min: 3.3¢ ea WLR Primer: 3.3¢ IMR 4064 @ $23/lb, 14¢ Cost per Loaded Round: 23¢, ~50¢/ea if you buy the Hornady Interlocks at retail. 7mm LRM: P7id10T on 05/2016 Nosler Custom Comp closeouts, 32¢ each Hornady 375 Ruger brass, reformed, $104/100, 4 reloads min, 26¢ MRP: 3.5¢ Retumbo: $30/lb, 30¢ Cost per Loaded Round: 92¢ .300 Blackout Tarster on 05/2/2016 M80 pulled 147gr per 1000 ($218) - Ammunition Store – Bulk Ammo and Cheap Reloading Supplies For Sale Online (http://ammunitionstore.com/) cost per bullet $.34 No Brass in this cost Tarster on 05/2/2016 Hornady SST/Amax 165gr per 100 ($33) Cost per bullet $.45 No Brass in this cost .308 Dyjital on 5/1/2016 175gr (100) $42 = $.42 (Sierra MatchKing) Total cost per round: $0.59 Tarster on 5/2/2016 M80 pulled 147gr per 1000 ($218) cost per bullet $.___ No Brass in this cost - Add $.25 for LC bulk brass Tarster on 5/2/2016 Hornady SST/Amax 165gr per 100 ($33) Cost per bullet $.51 No Brass in this cost - Add $.25 for LC bulk brass Tarster on 5/2/2016 Barnes Match Burner 175gr per 100 ($33) Cost per bullet $.51 No Brass in this cost - Add $.25c for LC bulk brass P7id10T on 6/1/2016 SMK 168gr HPBT Pulls, 500 @ $75 (purchased 2014), 15¢ / bullet Lapua 308 Brass, $74/100, min 10 reloads: 7.4¢ WLR Primer: 3.3¢ RL15 powder, $115/5lbs, 14¢/round Cost per loaded round: 40¢ .300 Savage Dyjital on 5/1/2016 150gr (100) $28 = $.28 (Sierra Spitzer) Total cost per round: $0.43 .300 Win Mag 338 Lapua: 2016 P7id10T on 6/1/2016 Berger OTM Hybrid 300gr bullets 100 ($89) Cost per bullet 89¢ Lapua Brass, bought 1x fired @$1.75/casing, min 10 reloads, 17.5¢ Magnum Primer, 3.5¢ H1000 @ $29/lb, 37¢ Cost per loaded round: $1.47 338 Edge: P7id10T Nosler Accubond LR 300gr Overruns, 100 @ $43 Cost per bullet: 43¢ Norma 7mm RUM brass closeout, 40/box @ $45, min 10 Reloads, 11.3¢ Magnum Primer, 3.5¢ Retumbo, $30/lb, 40¢ Cost per loaded round: 98¢ YouTube videos I watched at the beginning: While videos are great, find a local, friend or somebody from this board who you may know.... Learn hands on as well. There is a book that the name escapes me, it's often mentioned a lot and is a valuable resource. (Edit: The ABC's of Reloading linked HERE) I personally prefer my Sierra reloading manual, it has a wealth of information in the beginning pages that covers almost anything you want to know about ammunition and reloading. Available here.
