Reloading 12g

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone point me in the direction of a supplier of all the items i need to reload 12g shotshells.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. What are you reloading - special wildfowling loads, steel, bismuth? Or just common or garden No6 30g?

    Try these blokes out
  3. Thanks for the link 5A, but i need a supplier in the uk as sales of primers and powders have to be face to face with a shotgun certificate.
  4. Primers and powder you can get from your local gunshop. All mine (4 of them) in a 20 mile radius sell them and the prices are all similar. It pays to shop around online though for the wads and cases. Lead is a different matter as the postage costs negate any savings. Scrappy lead and cast your own shot.
  5. Clay & Game Reloaders here are good, based near Boston (Lincs) so obviously in the arrse end of nowhere.

    The bloke is very helpful and if he doesn't knw it, then you don't need to. I believe he develops loads for the major manufacturers etc. He specialises in big bore and exotic non-toxic shot etc, and that brings up an important point. If you shoot No6 at pigeons or just clays then there is no way you are gonna even break-even by reloading 12bore. If you shoot less popular calibres, especially big bores (10, 8 & 4bore and 410) and or exotic loads (ITM, bismuth etc) then savings can be made.

    I got a MEC 600Jr from him as you can get dies for 410 through to 12 bore for that press.
  6. Like he says, not viable for 12 bore anymore

    but these guys have a good range
  7. Thanks for the replies, i have worked it out on a 71/2 load with 28g powder and there is no saving on making them to buying them.
