This year I expect to fire 864 rounds of .45ACP for record in the DLEMA PPC pistol matches. Using lead bullets instead of jacketed, I have gotten the cost down to $6.00 per box of 50 rounds.
Since the end of the 2016 season, I have looked over the competitive offerings and decided to compete in quite a few more rifle matches than in years past. The Swiss rifle competition will burn up 480 rounds of 7.5x55mm GP11 ammunition for score. While I do reload 7.5mm, I try to use the issue Swiss GP11 as I have yet to come up with a loading that rivals the phenomenal accuracy of the factory round.
Between my M1903A3 and M1 Garand rifles, my expenditure of .30-06 ammunition will jump to 1061 rounds sent downrange. It is only due to the fact that I reload my spent brass that I can afford to shoot so much. My Dillon Precision reloading press has been churning out affordable quality ammunition since the 1980’s!
