Cost of Reloading Calculator

I stumbled into this cool cost of reloading calculator, that even accounts for how long it will take to pay off your reloading press!

I did all this calculation manually when I started reloading 12 years ago. Not that it's huge math, but it's pretty cool to crunch the numbers and get near instant gratification.

I rounded up on the cost of some items (like powder and primers) to account for todays gouging.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I also put my press in as $1000 press. To account for *all* that I've spent on the hardware. It's probably a little bit more if you include the fact that I picked up a single stage for precision reloads over the winter, and built a new bench for the two presses.

Considering I'll probably burn through 5000 rounds this summer, that's saying I'd pay for all the gear in one year, just counting the .223 alone. I'll still be doing 9mm, .40 S&W, .357 SIG (hopefully), .45 ACP , and .50 AE. And hopefully 7.5X55 SWISS as well.
