Thread: Shotshell Reloading

    Shotshell Reloading

    I am currently buying 1000 28g fiber wads in 7.5 in 12 bore for 165.

    Mainly to be used in sporting clay shooting. Usage is about 1000 every 6 weeks.

    Is anyone a current regular shotshell loader and can you indicate if it is financially worth me starting to reload 12b. I have no equipment but could get some as a significant discount.

    The prices in the last 3 years for these cartridges has jumped from 120 to over 160 and that is with buying 3000 at a time.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you price the components, its not worth doing, unless you need large shot or other special loads,

    You may find that at some clay shoots re-loads are not permitted especially ones under CPSA rules and regulations. [Safety and welfare.]

    Thanks for your comments so far! I am not competing at the moment so if I can save some cash by loading then it is a worth while exercise of on your advice its not, then I will keep handing over my hard earned cash!
