Just wondering what people pay around the country for .243 Win ammo these days?

Also, what's the relative cost of reloading too? (also how easy is it & how much outlay is required for the equipment to do it?)

Cheers,
Oly.

We pay £14.50 for .243 winchester 100grain and £15.50 for 100grain federal
Unless you are going to reload 100's a week it simply not worth the time and effort. My mate reloads and its a passion to him getting the right loads ect but i'll say something for his reloaded ammo its absolutely brilliant so accurate compared to factory ammo

20 in a box mate. :yes: with the reloading bit... you'd need to put a few shots through it to make them any cheeper... the dyes, powder, brass, heads & primers etc but (after a bit of experimentation) you will often end up with a more consistent and accurate round. You will also have a lot more bullet choice for different quarry... not to mention the warm, smug satisfaction of a one shot drop with your own product. :victory:
