You can use Google to find "reloading calculators", where you enter in the price of your components (primers, powder, bullets, cases), and it calculates a "per round" or "per box" cost. Compare that to what you're currently paying for commercial ammo, and then multiply the difference by how many rounds/boxes you'll be shooting.

Using cast lead bullets (bought from Missouri Bullets, not cast myself), I can reload .380, .40 and .45 for something like $4.50 - $6 per box of 50, so it didn't take long for the savings to exceed the price of my press & dies.

Note that I'm probably not spending any less money overall than I did before I started reloading, but I'm sure shooting a heck of a lot more!
