I load for my Fclass rifle, what benefits would there be for reloading for my 12g shotgun ?

Cheers Nick

As Bradders-though your competitors will benefit from your inferior ammo.

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.

Depends what you want to shoot with it ,if it's light clay and pigeon loads then it'll cost you more to reload them than buy factory but if your a wildfowler loading your own shells with non toxic shot it will save you money and also give you better performance especially with steel shot

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

None

Agreed if 12 bore 21-34 gr lead loads. Might be some limited savings for non toxic shot and in smaller calibers.

 

Reloadable cases can be an issue, 40 years ago there was an active reloading scene amoung club level clay shots, all used Winchester AA cases as nothing else would resize nicely.

 

All in all its just not worth the cost of setting the gear up.

 

But if you have the itch !!,

Saddler,

NRA 12b slug, S&B, were about 68p each. I can buy Geco comp slugs locally for about 60p ea. Times have changed!!
