Finally done went and priced out "max" loads. For 7.62x54 I'm looking at 1.53 a round for just brass! All midway had was Norma brass to price though. Well that and lapua. Both very expensive lol:P
So for first loads I'm looking at. 45 cents a round for 45acp, 1.16 a round for the 8mm, and 2.07 a round for the x54. I plan to only use recovered brass for my :223(my dad is going to start running a lot through his ar, so I'ma pick up his brass and use it:P)
Sans brass, i'm looking at .28 for the 45, .58 for the 8mm, .54 for the x54, and .40 for the 223. Hopefully that makes sense, lol. Granted the price per rounds are going to go down, as this info's using sierra matchkings for the rifle bullets
