Having bought all the consumables plus all the XL 650 caliber conversion stuff (including the Dillon die set plus the Dillon trim die), I am going to have to load a truck full of .223 to break even.
.223 was a different story for me. I think I was $600 and change into getting geared up for that but saved over 50% on buying XM193. I've loaded close to 10K total now so it's paid for itself. That doesn't include the precision stuff, where I really save.
