About .5 cents a shell.
True you can't load them but once or twice without sorting a bunch out for pin holes. They also soak up moister on rainy days. I like them for a one and done load and love the "SMELL" of Red Dot burned in them but ,I agree ,from a practical stand point they probably aren't worth the troubleI loaded Fed papers solely for the nostalgia aspect of it. While they reload just fine, they have a very short life. After a load or 2, they develop pin-holes where the paper and brass meet up and the primer pockets start leaking gas. I concluded they were a waste of money.
