  • Cost of Primers (based on bulk cost of Primers purchased and bulk quantity purchased)
  • Cost of Wads (based on bulk cost of Wads purchased and bulk quantity purchased)
  • Cost of Shot ((based on bulk cost of Shot purchased, bulk weight of Shot purchased, weight of shot reload)
  • Cost of Hulls (based on bulk cost of Hulls purchased, bulk quantity purchased, and average times reused

  • Cost of Powder (purchased in bulk mass)
  • Cost of shot (purchased in bulk mass)
  • Cost of Wads (purchased in quantity)
  • Cost of Hulls (purchased in quantity and reused)
