Ouch , cost of ammo
« on: November 17, 2020, 10:30:40 AM »
  Saw the pa auction last night,  damm 223 was close to $1 a round. But nobody has any.

Thinking I need sell my gun with my ammo and cash out.  :) :)

Reloading takes a lot of pain out of ammo, once you have the equipment.  I can't remember when I last bought ammo.

The initial cost is steep to get started. After that cost per round is lower.

Primers and bullets are hard to find.

I've had components to make 223 for years. I think if I disclose the price to make them (0.15) TK would rip my front door off it's hinges.

So please don't tell him.
