per round to load some of the upper echelon chamberings? I’m curious because I have the opportunity to pick up an abused Prairie Gun Works M15ti chambered in 7.21 Tomohawk (misspelled on the barrel) for a great price. The first thing I considered was the cost per round. I was surprised to see that it costs more than 5 bucks a round to shoot factory loadings and reloading isn’t much cheaper. Dies were $200.00 and brass is $50.00 for 20 rounds. If I choose to reload I’d spend $300.00 on ammo before I ever got a chance to see if the thing can shoot. The “cheap” way of finding out if the gun can shoot is at least 100 bucks for a box of factory rounds and that may or may not tell you if the gun can shoot. I could spend a fortune trying different factory options until I found one the gun likes. That got me to thinking.. What is the average cost per round for some of the popular large caliber rounds some of you are throwing down range? Here is a short and generic list so please feel free to add whatever you are shooting. I’m just curious to know what it will cost if I ever “upgrade” from my 7mm mag or .300WM. .338 Laupa .338 Edge .338 RUM .50 BMG .300 Allen Etc..
