I currently use GA 55 gr canned heat at 16-17 cents a shot, i get pretty good accuracy 1-1.5 MOA

but im thinking of upgrading to rem BH ammo for a little more accuracy it will be about 22 cents a shot

what kind of ammo do you use for plinking and how much is it a shot including shipping.

Wolf - about $0.10/rd

nickel a pop? $30 for primers and powder, and what, $40 per K for bullets. That's 7 cents without brass (eventually it'll wear out) or labor.

Well, I have Wolf that I bought at 10 cents. But it's currently costing me around 11.5 cents/pop. Am getting Adcom M855 for 17 cents.

I use primarily BH blue box 55gr. (12.99/box-50rds.) or XM193 (last gun show - 96.00/500rds.) I pick up my ammo at stores or gun shows, so there's no shipping but there is tax (6%) The LC XM193 is consistant and shoots well. The BH blue box 55gr. shoots even better, atleast in my AR15. Tighter, more consistant groups, less felt recoil (it's not loaded as hot as the XM193). It's cleaner than most of the other ammo I've tried. So far, I haven't been able to find it in bulk, at bulk prices.

I'm about 8.3 cents a pop with reloads

I said a nickle a pop because.

I was given 25 pounds of powder, 3000 primers, and some bullets, and I already have lots of brass.


Soooo depending on what components i use depends on my price....


so about a nickle a pop.

This current batch of 1000 is at 0.08667 cents per round (with local taxes on all the materials).

How about $0 per round? Just offer to teach someone to shoot and they'll foot the ammo bill.

has any one tried the Miwall Reload 223 Rem, 55gr FMJ?
Link Posted: 10/8/2005 9:48:36 PM EDT
Right around .10 cents a round

I'm around the .35 to .45 cent range. Not good now that I look at it.
