My reloading bench has recouped itself

Don't have exact figures, but in 6.8 alone, it has broken even. That was the primary reason I bought it, as I've said either here or in a comment elsewhere, I'd have shot every box of 6.8 in the greater Des Moines area at the rate I'm going.

I've never bought .223 brass, when I can buy 100 loaded rounds, and shoot it,  for $10-$15 more than the new brass is on the shelf. The .223 reloading is more for trying cool bullets that rarely show up as loaded cartridges, or to try to make accurate loads. Plus steel cased crap barely costs more than reloading, if you don't mind the occasional sucky batch.
