    WTB ShotGun Press

    As above am looking at getting into shotgun reloading ... ive been looking at a "Lee Load-All II Shotshell" or similar , is there anything else other than consumables that ill need to get me off and started ?

    Im wanting something pretty basic to whack out around roughly 100 rounds a week .

    If anyone has a unused press lying around getting No attention and possibly some consumables to get me started
    Im looking at loading 2 3/4 shells with a light load of no 7's

    I have plenty of access to shells just need pointed in the right direction for press and reasonable priced consumables (hopefully in or around CHCH)

    See if you can find a "MEC" way better.
    Sako Rifles,Browning shotguns,Black Labs.There is nothing else

    The dog always bites,The horse always kicks,The gun is always loaded.

    +1 Coming up on Tardme all the time now that most have got out of reloading.
    I had a Lee and it was OKish but would go for the MEC is reloading shotties again.
    There are 2 Lees also on TM at present but they don't appear to have the bushings.

    I have a lee load all and a mec.

    I strongly agree with the idea of waiting for a mec on trademe as they are much better-especially if your loading 100 a week.

    The load all is fine for really low round counts-eg 100 a year or for just mucking around to see what you can make but very slow for any sort of volume. You can make good ammo on them though if it's all you have.

    Silly woman has broken a hopper though

    If you buy it I can pick it up for ya and pack it up. Prob not worth shipping the shot or the primers. The primers look ancient anyway

    Don't mean to be a "norman' but is it really worth reloading what is essentially "Trap loads"

    Humping and Raping are selling low recoil Eley for 99 per slab (250) I think, which is far more realistic that their previous pricing

    What does it cost to load for a 12 gauge? I don't shoot or own any shotguns so haven't a clue.

    Side thought: Maybe I want a shotgun
