Just picked up a 28ga for my daughter to start shooting. Realizing that reloading will be cost effective for the shell, what's the going rate for once fired 28ga hulls? Local see,s to be about $0.12 ea.

Buy a flat and you’ve got 250 empties to reload

Unfortunately, today is the last day for the $2/box rebate from Win. Unless your receipt is dated before tomorrow and you can get your rebate form postmarked by the 15th, you are SOL.

I’d buy a flat of Win AA. And reload the empties. In loading the 28 ga, Win AA are the best by far in my 20 years of loading the 28 ga. Every other hull is a distant second.
But if you want to buy once fired empties, 12 cents is not a bad price.

My AA rebate form is good through September 1, 2020.
Their rebate I find online now states August 1.

If you can get AAHS once fired for $.12 each that is a bargain and much cheaper than buying a flat of new shells to get hulls even with the $2 per box rebate.

My reloading cost, excluding hull cost, is $33.50.

Assuming you get 5 reliable reloads from a hull, that's $167.50 for 5 flats of reloads.

If, after rebate, our shells cost $79 per flat you will be able to fire 60 boxes (10 new, 50 reloads) of shells before you need new hulls and the total cost will be $246.50 or $4.11 per box.

If you buy hulls for $.12 ($30 per flat), your total cost to fire 50 boxes will be $197.62, or $3.95 per box.

If you can get the $2 box rebate on AA shells, it's cheaper to buy new shells if once-fired hulls cost you more than $.15 each. If you can get hulls for $.15 or less it's cheaper to buy the hulls.

Without the rebate, it's only cheaper to by new shells to get hulls if once-fired hulls are costing you more than $.21 each. This assumes you can buy a case of new shells for $99 out the door which is a rare purchase at retail. At $110 per flat you can pay $.25 per once-fired hull and still reload cheaper than buying a flat of new shells to get hulls for reloading.

Thanks DEG for breaking it down for me. I'll pick some once-fired up.
