    Visiting with my stepdad over Christmas weekend, I told him about starting to reload 9mm and he said, "I have my old shotgun press someplace around here. You want it?"

    I didn't really know what to say. I had not really thought about reloading shotgun... I don't even presently own a shotgun.

    Been doing it for years…A LOT of money to be saved in 410 and 28 gauges, not as much in 12 and 20…saving but not like the first two.

    what utah said - but you can still save serious money in 12 and 20 loads for specialty loads such as buckshot, turkey, coyote loads... I've seen turkey loads go for $50 bucks for 10 rounds at my local gander mntn. You can load those for fraction of that.

    Heck if you want to make points take the press and learn how to use it . Never ever turn down a freebie in the reloading world !!! Unless it's 30 year old powder ... But hey you always work up a load first , right ..... And heck everyone needs a shotgun right !!!!

    With shot averaging $40-45 a bag (new) around the country these are the hard, cold facts.

    Unless you're a competition/very high volume bird shooter it's just cheaper - all things considered - to buy the few boxes you'll need to get through the year.

    He's right. This would be true for high sales volume loads like 12 gauge.
    I just started reloading shotshells again after a long layoff. I do it because I enjoy it.

    That depend upon how much he’s going to shoot…couple 100 year, absolutely…couple 1000, not so much.
