I figure I'm at roughly $0.75 per shot, considering the brass was free for all intents and purposes.

Thats a heck of a lot better than $1.65!!!

Good job Marn. At almost a dollar off per round, that is awesome!

That's only if he thinks his time is worth $19.64 an hour or less for time spent producing said ammo.

You can't look at it that way if it is a hobby. When he gets good at it he will start listening to the radio as he does it. I listen to audio books or recorded lectures so I can multi task.

Doesn't someone on here have a tire shop hookup? I just picked up a new set of wheels, just stock rubi take offs. But they do not have the tpms sensors in them. The best that I can find is factory replacement sensors at NAPA for $31 each. I know most of the tire shops now carry sensors and the valve stem kit.

Heck yes! Not to mention I like the process, it's fun, it's no different to me than working on the jeep or cleaning a gun after shooting it, or making a good dinner instead of eating out, or literally anything.

It's not like im sitting there going "ugh, i have to make ANOTHER one...."

tire pressure monitoring system?

Here's one for $10, should work with your model.

See because of the idiots in this world who never check their pressure, all new cars are required to have tpms. It sucks esp because is a dummy system with an idiot light.


Watching your flipping vegas right now, only 15 minutes left and still no hipster.


Puck, I mostly bought them for the tires. But I might keep them and use my current ones for the trails. But everything is for sale

So the TV show told your boss to PUCK-off? Lol

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
