How much does railgun ammo cost?
[This system was created entirely by Stan Bundy.] The rule of thumb I’ve always used with Rail Gun ammo is to base the cost on the max damage it does, modified by a supply and demand fudge factor. Base cost would be 1 CR per 1 M.D. of damage for a Burst (Single shot for those RGs like the Boom gun and Shemmarian that fire a canister round or single slug). Examples – A Rail Gun does 6D6 MD for a 40 round burst: Cost of ammo is 36 CR per 40 rounds, or 90 CR per 100 rounds. A Rail Gun does 1D4x10 MD for a 50 round burst: Cost is 40 CR for 50 rounds, or 80 CR per 100 rounds. The Glitter Boy Boom Gun: 3D6x10 MD per shot: 180 CR per round. Modifiers: • From Gun Manufacturer: -1D4x5% of cost. • Scavenged/Salvaged being resold: -2D4x10% (-1D4x5% if Pre-Rifts Boom Gun Ammo that has been proven legit and still in good condition) • Silver Ammo: Base x 5 (Manufacturer modifier still applies). • DU Rounds (Triax): Base x10. • U-Rounds (Triax): Base x 100.
It’s actually very expensive ($25k–$50k a round). The ammunition is very expensive itself, but the railgun ammo is especially expensive. However, there is a way to save some money on ammo. If you are looking for some ammo at a good price, I would suggest buying from https://bulkmunitions.com/buy-ammo/handgun/9mm-ammo/. These guys are selling ammo at much lower prices and with free shipping. I am buying ammo for many years, and this is the best shop that I have ever used so far. This is a very nice way to save some money.
