    Currently am using RWS Brass and S&B bullets. The former costs 24 Euros for 20 cases, and the 196 grain bullets are 17 Euro's per 100.

    Found some privi-partizan brass at 70 Euro's per 200 and 198 grain bullets at 60 Euros per 500.

    Not cheap to reload in Europe... but hey RWS Factory ammo is 5 Euro's a cartridge:eek:

    What is the reason for the high cost of reloading materials in Europe?

    Is it a tax, or a high cost imposed because of limited availability?

    I know that many powders, and supplies are produced there.

    Just wondering. Glad you are doing it though.

    Taxes etc. Everything just costs a lot more here.
    Even European made rifles etc are cheaper in the US.
    Limited availability is another issue.. for powders we only have Tubal and VV
