For reloading my break even or better poing cam withn I started casting my own lead. I can load a thousand round of .45 acp using Bull's Eye powder, the cheapest primers I can find, and casting lead that cost me $20 for about 300 pounds of it after I sorted the wheel weights.

Total cost for 1k is less than $65

My .45-70 the brass cost a bit, the components of primers were $35 per 1K Trail Boss powder I get about 350 or so from a can that cost me $17. Factory loads cost over $1 a shot.

It cost me more to reload for my Mosin than it does to buy spam can ammo. Though I reload for that one for my wife so she can enjoy shooting her rifle wihout the pain from recoil.
