Man, sorry, that's a lot of money. A lot of the reason I got into reloading was the cost savings, but costs have gone up considerably even with. If you can duplicate the outcome with your own loads, it would be the way to go.Rant...for a 160bucks cdn per box...ridiculous rant over.
You are so right. It is ridiculous, but after spending most of the past year trying to find components for my 7mm RUM, I got lucky. I got Norma brass out of the U.S. and powder, Hodgdon US869 in Canada. I even managed to find a box (50 cnt.) of Nosler 160 gr. Accubonds in Canada. None of it was cheap. By the time the bullets arrived, the cost for them was $114 cdn. Primers I already had thankfully. From my Ruger No.1, five shot group at 100 yards prints 1/2 in. & velocity is 3336 ft. per sec. out of a 27 3/4 in. barrel. 50 rounds will last quite awhile. As I said, not cheap, but I'm okay with it. It's either suck it up or quit reloading & buy factory. No thanks!Man you guys have it bad to the North.
That’s just ridiculous , especially the primer cost.
