    How do use the cost calc on this website. It used to work without downloading anything. BTW, I am not the most computer savy guy.

    Thanks

    I just used the one in the link and it did not require loading anything else. What is it asking for? There may be something you do not have - Java or something like that but the system will know what to download.

    The real savings comes in with the 1-1/4 oz 3-3/4 dram loads which we use for the Annies. You save approx. 1/2 over the factory loads.

    Your probably not hitting the middle 'compute' button. Don't use the bottom one.

    Here are the figures I recently ciphered:


    CAC reloading components for 20 flats:


    5,000 W209 - 148.00


    5,000 F8 Rem - 125.00


    16 lb Am Sel - 191.98


    14 25 lb #8 - 504.11


    Sub Total - $968.98


    6% tax - $58.14


    Grand total - $1,027.12


    CAC Prices for 20 flats of Rio ready-rolled Shells:


    10 flats 1 1/8ox; 3 dr; #8 - 511.00


    10 flats 1 oz, 2 3/4 dr; #8 - 505.00


    Sub total - $1,016.00


    6% tax - $60.96


    Grand Total - $1,076.96



    Total difference - $49.85 more for the ready-rolled. That works out to $.00997 per shell more. For this instance at least my time was worth MUCH more than that!

    Gary, as long as their giving rebates I agree...

    I consider my reloads better than gun clubs, estates and top guns for handicap.

    Using real good components I figure that I am about $4.50 a box for 7/8oz loads, and about $4.80 for for 1oz. loads. All of our time is worth more, but I like to reload in the evening while listening to the Red Sox Baseball game, or on a rainy Sunday afternoon listening to New England Patriots football game. Oh....I am a Pirate baseball fan and a Steeler football fan, but cant get them live on the North East Coast!!

    Glad you pointed out which button to push as it now works for me, BigM-Perazzi.

    With Lawrence shot, Spolar wads, Clays powder and Winchester primers, my 1 1/8 oz reloads are $4.99 per box, still cheaper, most of the time, than buying shells. And, I like to reload.
