I want to shoot about 300 rounds a month but don't want to spend the going rate of $.40/round for decent commercial .223/5.56 stuff. I figure if I can reload each piece of brass 5 times I will cut the cost to half that of current off the shelf ammo.
How many times can one expect to reload (full length resize) 5.56/.223 brass for use in an AR-15?
How many times can one expect to fire a piece of 5.56 brass if they neck size only for use in a bolt gun?
I don't plan on reloading to maximum velocity, just something reasonable for offhand practice.
