Default Reloading Cost Calculator

IF you wanna have some fun calculating your true costs (minus machine/press and/or your time).

http://www.handloads.com/calc/loadingCosts.asp

You can compare your old prices to current market values/costs in the panic frenzy mode, as well.

Enjoy!

Wow my cost for 223 is almost double that. I have a hard time finding bullets for under .11 a round then after powder and primers I am, we'll let's just say I am no where near .16 lol

I'm hovering around .23 per round of .223 at current pricing. I only started reloading collecting components since last December.

This is what I use. An incredibly nice and organized excel spreadsheet.

It has everything. Adds tax and shipping into consideration, your equpiment cost, how much you make an hour, and how much you would need to load to get return on your investment. It also prints labels, and has an energy and conversions calculator

All bought pre panic. Still got about 15k.

Maybe I should go and fire some 45's.
