How to Save on Ammunition - The Cost of Reloading Your Rifle Ammo

Feb 5th 2015 at 4:32 AM

With ammunition price sky rocketing and the availability declining, reloading ammunition can be a cost effective and satisfying venture to go into.

What are the associated costs to reloading. First, you have to ask yourself, if you are reloading to plink or play at the range, reloading for competition, or reloading for hunting. Each of the three is unique in how you will load for your rifle. I'll tackle this matter by giving you a general formula and cross-reference the associated costs of standard factory ammo.

This is your first determining factor. If you are a new reloader, I would highly recommend purchasing a single stage press. Lee makes an affordable entry press to learn on. Progressive presses produce more ammunition than single stage presses and are much more expensive.

Reloading dies will also vary based on whether you will be shooting a bolt or semi-automatic rifle. You can choose from competition dies, carbide dies, or just plain standard dies. Some of these will come in two die or three die sets. More dies usually mean more money. It also means that you are not sacrificing the quality of your rounds by distributing tasks performed to other dies, rather than having multipurpose dies.

Purchasing in bulk quantities is where you will gain the most advantage. Purchasing 5000 primers instead of 100 or 8lbs of powder with several of your friends and split the hazardous material fee will go a long way to putting more money into your pocket and longer time at the range.
