I have been reloading quite a few rifle shells lately so since I am burnt out on rifle reloading I decided to reload some 12 ga target loads today. I actually have fun reloading shotgun shells.I have a bunch of Downrange DR-XXL wads I want to use up so today I reloaded 22 boxes of 7/8 oz of 8s in Fiocchi target hulls.
I have never reloaded Fiocchi hulls before so I had to make a few small adjustments to my Mec Grabber to get the crimps right.
In the bottom, center, of the above picture are the shells I reloaded today. I will probably reload another 6 to 8 flats of target loads before the middle of May. It is just too hot to be in that little building during the summer months.I am pretty sure I have enough target loads and components to reload target shells to last me the rest of my lifetime. Instead of putting all of my savings money into a 401K retirement plan I put quite a bit of it into ammunition and reloading components.
The way lead, brass and lead free components and ammunition has gone up in price my Redneck Retirement Plan maybe worth more money than my 401K is when I retire.
