Re: Cost breakdown, Shotshell reloading
well Hogg, as I said, I was using prices paid today for components, as that is what the average user of this board wants to know. In the past, I have bought 8 lb kegs of red dot, but those days are over, not worth loading 12 ga any more. If you ever find Green Dot for 13 a lb, let me know, I'll buy some from you.
Next time you get shot at anything under 20 a bag, you let me know, I'll drive out and buy a ton from you.
As for the hull price, the numbers I used are averaged over the life of the hull. 28 and 410 hulls are 12 cents a piece, and usually good for about 4 loads until I really start to scrutinize them, so therefore 3 cents per load.
Have a great Mothers Day!
