On average, with the cost of powder etc, what would be the price per round, to load your own .223 ammo?

Thank you, Signed,

My reloads run $.12 per round. This doesn't include the cost of the brass.

With the components I use for .308 and .270 my reloads run about $.28-.30 per round. The .223's I referred to above are considerably cheaper because they use about half the powder charge and I buy Hornady bullets in 1000 lots which makes for substantial savings.

My biggest savings comes when I load for my .270WSM at about $.31 per round. In my local stores factory loads for this caliber run from about $1.25 to 1.50 per shot.

I figgure my 30-06 premimum grade reloads run about .40 ea, while those for my Garand run about .28 each. My 416Rigby reloads run about 1.10 each and factory ammo is 5.25ea with the same bullet.

To figure cost of powder/round devide the price of 1 pound of powder by 7000 than multiply by the powder charge being used.
Primers run about $18/1000 or under 2 cents each
Bullets are the most expensive component, 30cal bullets range from .12 ea (bulk FMJ) to $5 ea (hand made target bullets) with the average being .15-.25 each.

Here is Hogdon's web page. You can also look up IMR, Alliant, Accurate Arms, and Winchester.

They work really well but......you have to shoot metal or solid rock only. I have made 10,000's of them and shot hundreds of them in 223 to 45 caliber at a lot of things. Sheet metal 1/16" or thicker, 1/4" or thicker cast iron, and solid rock will ignite them every time. Shooting cars doesn't work very well unless you hit the wheel rim,metal bumper,or door post. As they pass through the sheet metal body and ingnite when they hit a thicker piece of metal inside the car where you can't see them go off.
