^^This is what you are looking for. Calculate the cost of equipment, components and your time. It takes a long long long time to make it up in 9mm, especially in plinking rounds. Good target or defensive ammo , it only takes a long time. At a point it almost didn’t make since to reload 223.....glad I stuck with that one because it makes a lot of since at the moment.
I load 10mm in Gold Dots and XTP's for literally half the cost of diluted 10mm plinking ammo from the factory and I bought 500 new 10mm brass, still way ahead.
30-06, 300 WM, 243 in loaded with the best hunting projectiles for a fraction of the cost of premium loaded factory ammo.
