what do you think a box would cost me to reload if bought materials to reload a couple thousand rounds at a time? Any recommendations on brass powder bullets etc?

Buying in bulk will save you but you'd need more info.  Do you want premium bullets (barnes) or will just standard bonded be sufficent your talking a big difference in cost if you are thinking 1000 or so at a time.  Same with brass.  Do you already reload?

Math time
one pound of powder = 7000 grains
Depending on brand and type either 5LB or 8lb bottles are cheapest...
brass can be reused several times if not hot loaded so after acquiring it hardly any expense...
I'm averaging 10 reloads or more.  I usually anneal the brass every 3-5 reloads.
primers $30-35 @1000..
one time set up fee...die set
the bigger expense and one that varies the most is which bullet you choose.
 
So to answer your question accurately you have to define your powder bullet and primer used...
 
After that it's just math.  BTW from what I've seen 6.8 SPC brass is pricey so buying reloadable live ammo the first time is often cheaper than buying virgin brass.

+1 Bud,I reload most of the times so I can find a good load to match my rifles & guns.I find now that only on my large calibers is where the real savings are.It's a waste of time now to reloard for .223 unless you are precision shooting there is some much around to plink with but when I do reload that stuff I do a thousand at a time [board old retired fart]

With your 6.8 buy silver state armory brass. It is the best available and is not that expensive

I started a couple weeks ago and decided to upgrade to a progressive press. Pretty sure want to go all copper bullets.

I hunted with a 6.8 for one season and tried the Sierra prohunters that were loaded by SSA, everyone seemed to have good luck with them, but I didn't.  Of the four deer I shot, all four rounds experienced complete jacket seperation and I didn't get complete pass through.  All shots were less than 100 yards and hit right behid the shoulder, taking out both lungs.  I spent a good amount of time traking those four deer.  The gentleman that I sold the 6.8 to has been using the 95 grain Barnes load and has had great results on Georgia deer and hogs.
