Cokeman, do ya reload? A short kit on a MEC, and you'll be in business! As easy as loading any other shell!

No. What would be the minimum cost?

You can get a press, single stage, and a short kit from mec for around 100. That's getting the press used. Your wads would be about 10 for 500 of them, primers are about 30 to 40 per 1000, and then shot.

Shot for me is 50 per sack, but I load 7/8 oz. So I get a bit more than 450 loads per sack.

If my math is right, and don't know what powder you'd use, I figure just under 5 per box of 25.

I looked at the supplies this week at Cabela's. They actually had 2-1/2 16 gauge shells. They are $16 for a box of 25. I will probably buy them all. I just need to make sure the gun is working correctly. It's really hard to cycle after I cleaned it for the first time.
