You can't even save the cost of the brass case used in cf rifles.
Maybe some slight solid slug solace at point blank range.

Zero rewards for the effort spent reloading shotgun ammo, ever
Oh, apart from making slug cartridges for around 20p-25p ea; what's the factory stuff selling for these days? (NRA Armory still doing theirs for 35p each, are they?)
That's for 12-bore...what is the RRP for 20-bore slugs, or 10-bore slugs? Anyone even seen 10-bore slugs in the UK? Federal make some, GMK refuse to bring them in.
Ditto for buckshot loads. Or black powder loads. Or chamberings other than 12....no point making 410 ammo, it's so cheap; 8-bore...they give it away with a gallon of petrol, 16 bore....no point, terrible guns 16's
IF you're only using clay loads day in day out, buying the cheapest brands you can, then I totally agree, no point reloading.
Want a different type of shot, or shot load, or a non-clay type ammo, or wad type, or cartridge length, or a non-12 bore cartridge? Then you'll make big savings reloading...same as with rifle ammo....and you can tailor your ammo to the gun, same as with rifle ammo
