    Seems like walmart's limit is annoying and there brass is overpriced Considering its copper and not steel. $339 and around $352 after shipping so around 35/a round http://www.the-armory.com/shopsite_sc/st... Additional Details

    Link may not work but it's wolf brass 1,000 rounds. Think it's made in Taiwan and is reload able

    Not bad. I'm still trolling all of the Walmarts with in 50 miles. I even came across a cool manager that said F the limit and let me get 10 boxes.

    Just ordered it. Seemed like a good price for brass. Didn't want to run steel

    It does make it a little cheaper to shoot.

    I reload all of mine too. Hard to find 69 grain vmax loads without a premium price. Only thing I shoot in the varmet gun.

    Standard 55 grainers for my plinker rifles at 9-11 cents a round. Whatever is cheapest components wise... ;)

    Price does go up if I use a premium bullet but even so its the same or less than wolf steel cased stuff

    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. ;)
