    Divide the brass by the average number of reloads it can handle before failing.
    Probably 20c per case.

    Probably much more, I have brass that have barely any headstamp left they've been reloaded so often.

    And how many you lose every session. I probably lose 5-10% every time.
    Revolvers I lose none ;)

    I lose some brass on club shoots because of time pressure but very infrequently leave the range without a net increase in brass and lead if I go on my own to practice. On occasion I've picked up hundreds of cases extra from people who don't reload.

    Powder: R.48c
    Brass: R.24c (taken at 5 reloads per)
    Primer: R1.35
    Bullet: R1.00
    R3.07 per round

    Can probably remove the cost of brass as I have almost 1000 free that I picked up.

    Pegasus Ammo in KZN & Cape Town has also been selling 124gr FMJ ammo at that price for a couple of months now.
