    Compared to the price of his setup, $10 per is peanuts!

    Unless you're a multi millionaire or sponsored I can most assuredly guarantee you feel it at that cost every time you pull the trigger. I'm well off and the price of my 300 win mag and 6.5 creedmoor drive me nuts, I can't imagine what this guy feels.

    Honestly this system feels pretty inexpensive.

    Sure Brass is $5 per but Petersen brass lasts well. The rifle is actually a 338 EnABELR; so I’m shooting 300gr Scenars, call it $1 per bullet. It does burn a LOT of powder and barrel life will probably be short; say 1000 rounds.

    So if I get 10 reloads out of the brass my actual per shot cost is
    $1 bullet
    $1 powder. (Ow! Really!)
    $0.075 primer
    $0.50 brass
    $1.25 amortized barrel

    I’m still under $5 a round. The run cost of this rifle is really quite low; more powder than a 338 Lap but all the other costs are the same.

    Now shooting lathe turned solids from a Tremor in 416 Barrett was expensive…and so very much fun!

    Ah, not as bad as I thought.. I swore they were over 10 bucks each. Good shooting regardless man, wasn't trying to be a hater.

    No worries; if I thought you were hating I wouldn't have replied!

    It is easy to drive prices over $10/ea with exotic bullets or factory loads. By keeping per-round costs down I can get more experience, and "experience at distance" wins.

    As the old adage about reloading goes: you don't save any money, you just get to shoot more.
