READY TO RECYCLE!

Postby DuncaninFrance » Wed Oct 12, 2011 10:31 am

Taken for a recent photographic comp this is a box of shot hulls ready for me to re load.

Obviously some of them won't do but I liked the concentrated colours..............

The color really pops out at you. Good photo effect.

All I need now is something to load them with. I had a MEC 600jr back in the 70's when I was shooting skeet regularly.
It's hard to spring for a new one and the rest of what goes with it when I buy shells at Walmart for about $5.50 a box.

I agree. I pay 3.90€ / $4.97 a box of 25 28gram 7½ cartridges.
The club I belong to , like all clubs in France (and probably elsewhere) set 28gram loads as the maximum and I have about 400 32gram loads so I am slowly 'recycling' them and using the powder/shot/primers/plaswads to make up 28gram loads.
I have a Lee Loadall which works OK but takes some time. Nice to sit in the workshop on a summer day with the radio on and just load a few.............. :cool:
