Hedging my bets.

Concerned I might not be shooting this newest rifle build as much as I’d like, I finally caved in and purchased some components to “roll my own”. This will get me at least 500 to get started.

Factory ammo best case seems to be about 60cents per round.

Cost to make it myself:

Primed Remington brass – $.26
Sierra Match King 125 grain – $.32
18.5 grains of H110 – $.05

Total cost for first load – $.63

Primer – $.028

Total cost for reload – $.378

I’m sure I could get the price down using a cheaper bullets, but this is what I’m doing for the first go round, we’ll chrono them and see how they perform

Lately I've been into shot shell reloading, and trap shooting.
