    Reloading 20g

    I am thinking of reloading for my sons 20g, Smelly Bennelli. More like teach him to load his own ammo
    We have heaps of shot and powder but no press. I do not have hulls or wads either. Just wondering if anyone else bothers reloading for the 20g and if you can get all the components easy enough.
    I seen a mech junior for 20g on tardme for $350ish. Might grab one. Fast, 1 ounce loads are all we need.

    I was offered a shotgun press the other day, are they caliber specific?

    Yup, I am pretty sure they are. In saying that, I have not loaded a shotty round for some years.

    Nope its cheaper to buy it, although I now have a 12g (getting on with it is proving to be challenging, still working all the misses out)

    Wads from here Wads Clay Buster - 20g - WAA - 7/8oz - 500 | Trade Me

    and he can supply everything else as well

    Cheers Mikee. I have shitloads of lead shot and powder so I just need a press, primers, hulls and wads. It is good way to start my boy off on the reloading buzz as well I reckon.

    Jaysus!! Might be a bit flash and expensive for the amount of shooting our 20g does mikee!! I will have a look a prices all the same.

    EDIT:Far out!!! $1500 bucks!!! Would have to load shitloads to make it viable.

    I would but they are melted at the bottom of a 44 gallon drum, would be hard to sort them apart from the 12g ones now

    my wee nephew was shooting my 20g this weekend (with 28g inserts and a bit of help from dad) was managing to hit stationary clays at 15m.
    Dad help with the holding the gun but he aimed it and made it go. I removed 2/3 of the shot to cut down the recoil (he is only 5 after all). Little bugger nearly ran me out of ammo!!!!!

    If your son's shooting an U/O and wants something better than a 410 with less boot than a 20 your welcome to borrow them

    Thanks Mikee. He shoots his/our benelli 20g just fine. He has shot a few ducks now and getting handy on clays.

    Hey Dave I sourced some primers from a guy in chch. I can't think of his name at present but will check emails if you want. Otherwise I think people suggested I try willam arms for powder and primers. (That was for 12g steel loads)
