Since you already have your brass, just looked at Cabelas current shooting/reloading catalog. And, as I said, you might want to stick to an occasional box of factory ammo like you are currently doing.
Components, powder, primers, bullets, etc. $40.00
That's basically 5 boxes of shells, or $8.00 a box. Pretty cheap eh?
Now, in order to load these five boxes you need a scale($72), RCBS press(their cheapest listed is $120), a set of .243 dies($27) and a shell holder($7)for a total of $225.
Amortize that into your first 5 boxes and you per box cost is $53 a box. Moral is that you can buy a goodly number of Remington factory ammo for $265. Loading is great fun, and if you are going to expand into other catridges and stay with it as a hobby for years to come, then go for it. But, if you are just trying to save a little money for your immediate future, you can see that's not going to happen. Good luck.


Yea that does put things into perspective cost wise...I guess if your going to go that route you have to be in it for the long haul in order for it to pay off.

When you reload you just wind up shooting more if you're like me. There's not really any savings, you just get to shoot more often without any more of a hit on the bank account. It's more a thing of enjoyment than savings.

I can load 300 WSM with a 165 grain Nosler Accubond for .67 cents a round. (I already have the brass)
If you buy brass, it will be around a dollar a round for the first loading.

A box of Federal Accubonds at Midway is 48.99 per 20.
That is $2.45 per round!!!
