Sure does, makes a huge difference in accuracy too. Price may not be the reason I reload but it definitely doesn't hurt either.

What kind of projectiles are you using and where do you get them?

Primers seem to go for about 3 cents each, powders for 20 grains goes for about 3-4 cents per round, are you saying you can get projectiles for 3-4 cents a round?

Yes, I bought 100,000+ pallet a of Winchester blems about three years ago ~0.0275 each. I should run out of flatbase 55 grain SP about a year after I die... This was a water damage partial pallet I bought at my distributer. I usually have to tumble overnight in walnut hull to remove the heavy corrosion. Some are lightly pitted after tumbling. I spend a little more on powder in the 8 lbs kegs (CFE, or AR Comp ), and my primer prices match yours at 5 - 5000 sized CCI milspec bricks. Sorry, no secret source for cheap plinkers, just large lots at wholesale..

Nothing right now comes closes since the craziness.
