I started reloading back in March, for my S&W M&P15 .223/5.56, I started for the fun of it along with saving a few bucks. Because I have the reloading equipment now, I figure I would go ahead and start reloading 40 S&W.
Using the on line cost calculator http://www.handloads.com/calc/loadingCosts.asp
It cost me about 18 cents a round for .223, which over time will be cost effective.
Well, I plugged the numbers in for 40 S&W and it came out to 33 cents a round
I just bought a 50 round box 180g of Federal at Wal Mart for $13.57 thats about 28 cents a round.
Has pistol bullets always been twice the price of rifle bullets????
