.223 (5.56) Ammo reloaded in bulk
« on: December 27, 2012, 12:02:57 PM »
I am looking to get a group together to split the cost on material purchase to reload .223 in bulk. I need 5 to 10 people to split the cost for 10k rounds with an initial price of $240 / 1000 rounds and recycling the brass the subsequent reloads would be $175 / 1000 rounds. Let me know if your interested  :smokin: BTW I'm doing the reloading and not making a dime off  this other than what we all are saving on supply cost by buying it in bulk.

When are you looking at doing this?  I'm interested, can't beat 240 for 1000 rds

I would like to have the order by Feb 1st but with backorders the way they are it may be a few months to actually get the stuff in and then about a week to produce the ammo. The key to the whole deal is that we have to recycle the brass to save alot of the cost, I'd really like to do the initial buy and then plan on doing 2 reloading buys per year afterward. So that means people that really want to shoot alot throughout the year to make it work out well. I have another contact here at work for some others that may be interested in this so its not just limited to those on the forum. When I get enough intrest and people deciding how much they want in for (1k, 2k, 5k rounds etc..) I'll let everyone know and gather the money and place the orders.

Oscar Can I expect you in for the 2k or 5k rounds?

I don't have 5k of used brass. In fact I should probably look at trying to acquire some brass. Are you ordering brass with the initial order?

Yes, that's why the price is higher, then afterward recycling your brass( we will keep it all separated because the brass lasts longer only going through one rifle BTW) its cheaper.

So is the initial order going to be enough brass for everyone that buys in to get 1000 rounds, or will it be less and just enough powder/primers and lead for a 1000 rounds? If we will be getting a 1000 rounds on initial order, I am in for sure. If not what are we looking at getting on the initial order? I don't shoot like I used to.

What kind of press are you using, I am sure it's progressive or at least semi-progressive at 500 rounds an hour.
