I was talking to someone this morning about re-loading.

I don't see why people would want to load .22 or 12ga with how cheap they are. Now that is referring to standard load 12ga. I know 12ga rounds can be 00 buck, bean bags, and every variation in between. However lets take 00 buck for example, seems like the casing you have to have and the different buckshot, etc seems like it would not really be worth it.

I may be wrong.

Can you make your own bean bag shotgun rounds? That's pretty sweet. Every time I get the CTD catalog I want to make some flechette (sp?) rounds.

When buying the cheap dove loads, you might save 50 cents a box. I just need something to do every once in a while. Is why I'm asking here instead of just buying one outright at Cabelas. Hoping to find one cheap.

Understood. I supposed no matter what caliber you are reloading, you would have to load X amount of rounds to break even(from your initial investment), and everything after that is where any real savings come in.

It's more of a hobbie/skill than outright cost savings.

If you're going to shoot a lot of ducks, it's well worth your time to reload. Lead free ammo ain't cheap.

EDIT: There's no reloading .22's.

Give me a dollar.

You have to load a whole lot to break even, and unless you have a good place to buy suplies from you won't break even. Reloading shotshells doesn't pay for itself on your average hunting/clays loads till you get into the .28g and .410g rounds.
