I reload for 40+ cartridges.

The cost of bullets seem to be constantly rising.

Is any bullet worth $1 or more????????  any worth 50 cents each????????

Well BEAR, I don't know about worth it.
BUT I paid it, So I guess they are to me:
 
$1.20 ea for 0.366 286 gr NPTs
$1.43 ea for 0.458 450 gr Swift-As
$1.82 ea for 0.458 450 gr Barnes Banded Solids
 
Because of the cost per bullet,
I did the initial worked up for reloads with 30 C&C bullets.

Those big sabot's are 2.49 each...just the projectile. 1100 gr. black tip AP's are about a buck and a half each pulled. 25mm projectiles are hanging in right about 40 bucks each off a lathe, loaded are around 120 bucks a round.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

D-I-L shoots a WYB 338/378.
TTSX Barnes 225 bullets .
$8.75 each if she bought them.
They reload but even that it is still 45% of that....
It takes close to an oz of powder $4 a brass and the bullet, about a buck.
Not a lot of prairie dogging whit that one.Ouch

I load for @40 different rifle rounds as well. I don't think about the cost honestly. It is still WAY cheaper than buying loaded ammo. The nature of a handloader is to be a bit of a hoarder (guilty) so you (me) tend to go overboard with how many components, gadgets and tools you need (want). With a little shopping around various website and forums you can find some deals on components. Besides, it's only money...can't take it with ya!!
