Point is that I can still make rounds (9mm and .40S&W) for about $8 abox. I still have primers, power, and bullets left over from back when primerswere only $35 dollar box, a few months ago. This higher primers price will increasemy cost be about .1 cent per round. Still makes reloading an awesome choice. Especiallynow.
If primers were $35/1K, that's 3.5 cents each. If you are paying $45/1K, that's 4.5 cents each - 1.0 cents more per round, or expressed in a dollar amount - $.01 more per round; a penny a round.
I suppose with prudent powder and bullet choices, and buying in quantity, you could still hover near $8-$9/box.
