Since cases last well over 50 shots, I'll say about 36 cents a cartridge using the cheapest jacketed bullets I can find. If you cast your own bullets a lot cheaper.... not including the initial cost of press, dies and whatnot.

I don't buy in bulk which would make the cost even less expensive.

I don't reload to make it less expensive, I handload to make ammo tuned specifically for my rifles, being less expensive is a plus.

I can`t reload .30 WCF any cheaper than I can buy them already made up, but I do.............You can buy em about as cheap or cheaper than reloading them.
