Can't say exactly the cost of these different rounds but thought I'd share information to maybe help find odd or rare type ammo. For my Steyr 8x56R its $12.00 for reloading my brass 20rd. http://www.mrnambu.com/

I am not finding a lot of brass and loaded ammo for the 25-20 single shot I have.:( I think that it is fairly rare these days.

Shadow, I'm with you on that. I sold it for that reason. Buymilsurp.com has some right now. $30 for 15 rounds.

I use some 7.7x58 mm Jap ammo. Found it reasonably priced at Graf and Sons. They are also excellent with the customer service.

Where I am folks ask me to make them some of the strangest stuff, I had to do a lot of research on the 11.7x51R cartridge. You can buy them at one place that I know of but at $69per 20 that gets a bit ridiculous.
It wasn't till recently I found out about the 9mm Fed rimmed cartridge, they haven't made that for a better part of 20yrs. And when you can find it (if your lucky) it can go as high as $70+ per box of 50.
So every week is an adventure around here wondering what people will ask for next.
