Thanks again guys. So it looks like I could buy factory 7.62 for about .25 cents a round and could reload .223 for about .18 cents. Does that sound about right ?
Those prices don't sound out of line.
I do reload for the 7.62X39, but not for just shooting ammunition, I have about 150 rounds of reloads that deliver what I consider match grade performance from an SKS, still accurate out to the effective range of the cartridge, where Tula steel case is only balpark at that range.
