    Reloading 12 GA 3 1/2

    How many rounds of 3.5" steel do you go through in a year? Seems to me it would be a lot more effort than it would be worth unless your going to be going through a couple hundred +/year.

    Reloading 12 GA 3 1/2

    I've loaded quite a few of them,
    mostly Kent and Federal hulls.
    i usually load 1 3/8 with #1 or smaller,
    and 1.5oz in #1 and larger.
    STEEL powder, and Sam 3.5" wads.
    i reload them on a mec 600.
    but i resize em first with a mec supersizer.
    You actually save the most $ reloading the 3.5" vs.
    buyin factory.
    Ya don't save much reloading 2 3/4" and 3" steel.
    Althugh, i reload em all.
    I like playin around with the 3" 450gr loads at 1750fps.
