Near as I can add, I running around nine cents per round. Wondering what others might be getting.
I load somewhere around 250 rounds a week.

It depends on whether you include the cost of the brass, and what bullet you use. It ranges for me from a low of about 12¢ per round (Winchester 55gr FMJBT, CCI-450 primers, LC brass from RVOW used three times before discarding, and WCC844 powder) to about 19.5¢ per round for 55 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips.

I've just started reloading for this caliber. Currently my cost is 13.8 cents per round. This is based on brass @ $34/M and figuring 3 reloads per case, primers @ $17/M, bullets @ $26/M and commercial powder @ $19.50/lb. Once I get some milsurp powder my costs will drop as the powder is currently my biggest cost factor. The prices I quoted are the cheapest I've found so far but do not include shipping and taxes, however they are figured into the final cost figure. Plus I had to tool up my Dillon but I didn't factor that in. Nine cents a round sounds pretty good Deathfinger.

My cost was based on a 55gr (win) BTFMJ No cost on brass other than tumble time which I did not account for. Win or Federal primers Accurate 2230 powder This is my basic plinking round.

i reload for around .11 a round using win 55gr fmj, i buy wolf for .10 a round and use it for mostly 0-75 meter blasting. i reload all sorts of bullets so the cost goes up and down. most accuracy work i load my own with premium bullets.

Seems like I calculated about 12 to 13 cents/round using 55 gr Win FMJBT, Win SRP, and 26.5 gr of Win 748. Last year I bought 6K of South Afrikan for 10 cents/round. I won't load my blasting ammo when I can buy it already assembled cheaper than I can reload it for. I do reload my coyote/crow loads though, same load with a 55 grain Nosler BT.
