Tell me about it.
Because, based on my off-the-cuff estimates from scrounging around the intertubes yesterday and today, I can reload birdshot rounds for about half the price as new-off-the-shelf ones (so long as I get the components on sale / cheaply), which means this little press will pay for itself in somewhere around ~400 rounds. Additionally, it seems like shotshell reloading is a lot easier to do and get into than handgun or rifle reloading; the presses are significantly cheaper, if nothing else.
So, is that press sufficient to get the job done? What about buckshot reloading? What about slugs? Are those two economically feasible, or is it just cheaper to buy loaded rounds? Is that press sufficient for basic reloading demands, or should I move up to something along these lines?
One thing is for certain – the Saiga eats shells like candy, especially with 20-round drums or 12-round sticks attached to it, and I was going to get into reloading at some point, so it might as well be now; ammunition prices certainly are not going down!
