    Prices of reloading componants have risen sharply over the past few years. I have compiled this list of my fav. loads to give any newcomers to the hobby of reloading an insite to what each round costs roughly.
    These are my fav. loads that I load frequently.
    223 rem,52 gr speer hp,23.5 grH4895,cci small rifle primer.=29cents
    243 win.,100 gr speer boattail sp,33 gr H380,cci lg rifle primer=38.2 cents
    7mm/08130 gr speer boattail sp,35 gr h4895,cci lg rifle primer=43cents
    30/30 win,100 gr speer plinker,31 gr H4895,cci lg rifle primer=34.2 cents.30/30 win,150 gr speer flatnose,27 gr H4895,cci lg rifle primer=36.2 cents

    These loads are below max. but you should allways reduce by 10% and work up slowly. This represents only the component cost of these loads .

    Ive never done any reloading, but thats considerably less than buying factory rounds. I would assume that the powder is the biggest expense.

    I thought about trying my hand at reloading. Looks like it is worth it from cost per round standpoint. Plus the pride you have from making something yourself.
