So f”8!$ excited to get a interest rate below 3% it’s insane for fixed!!!

I need to do mine, been a year and high 3%.

300aac, 9 in barrel with 200grn, subsonic with a full powder load.

125-150 for hunting, 150s are the cheapest. Nice is all you change is the upper.

So after watching auctions on eBay with $195 dies going for over $300 I found a new set in stock at a Hyatt gun store for straight retail. Only set they had. I ordered on line but they said 6-7 weeks possible for shipping due to volume.  Thought they might have scammed me but I got tracking number today!  Just a few days to go before I can start reloading

Also another 23 lbs of powder showed up today. Accurate, Unique and Titegroup. Now if I can just find more small pistol primers and some 9mm dies


I also function tested the G43 tonight since I’m going to cut the misses loose with it and wanted to be sure. Yup. Point click ship. Like all glocks.

Well got tracking on the 300blk dies which should be delivered this week. Unfortunately it was sent to my Houston address.

Dillon also shipped my 9mm dies so I should be set as long as I can find more small primers.

And I got 4 more lower parts kits to assemble.

Started looking at loads last night and my books are dated. Waiting on my disk from Neoconos update for quick load to work with Win10. Seems subsonic expansion is really hard to do. Lehigh makes some but gawd they are high. Probably load a few magazines worth and keep them next to the bed. They’re more than $1 each

$1 a round for reloads seems up there. Are the bullets that much for 200gn?

How much it costs to reload can vary depending on how you calculate the cost of brass.  If you are figuring in the entire cost of brass and a more expensive bullet it can easily be $1 per round.  For most of my reloading I divide the cost of each piece of brass up over 5 re-loadings and I end up around $.50 per round with relitively cheap bullets.  Some of the folks I shoot with use a bullet that costs nearly twice as much an are probably closer to $.80.

In this case the projectile alone is more than $1 each :-0
