Do you have a dillon trimmer? If so, you have have a toolhead milled down and make your own brass from 556. Buying converted brass will be about $.12 each.
Primer and powder is around $.06-$.09 depending on subsonic or supersonic loads.
The only significant variable is bullets. You can load ~$.15 147gr FMJ bullets all the way to >$.40 220 gr HPBT heavy subsonic bullets.

A big advantage for me is it's easy to get cast bullets to run well in 300 blk.

$.02 for a gas check is a lot cheaper than $.12 for jacketed bullets.

Once I get my freechex III it will be even less.
