We all got our big fish stories and some will say they never do more than a few. But surely some of you have sat down put your mind to it and stuck with it for a 8 hour day. What is your best daily yield? your one time........"holy crap I loaded how many today?" I know mine will pale compared to you pro's but one day I did a smidge over 2000. Let the tall tales begin :0)

I sat at my pacific one time and cranked out just over 10,000 shells(I ran out of primers). Of course I took a lunch break and potty breaks. Not sure how much time I spent loading but I had the day off and I was bored. BYG

Mark you averaged a box every 6 minutes, not counting bathroom, food and refilling bottles and such. That is rollin' man. Bill

One day - 2,000 rounds of .38 Super on a Dillon 550. It was a full day too.

Shotgun shells - 1,000 in one day is the most I ever did, usually it was more like 300 loaded in three sessions. The marathon loading sessions just aren't a good thing for me.

I do not like marathon reloading, but I do like Marathon shooting events. I have shot 1800 marathon targets in 8 hours. Did this twice at the Bucks county gun club in PA. Tom

Right at (3) flats or 750 shells. That's all the longer I can stay interested. Pacific DL366

I'm gonna go ahead and wave the BS flag on 10,000 in a day unless you work at Winchester. Thats 40 flats. Just Say'n......,

I timed myself a few minutes ago on 50 shells. It took 2 1/2 minutes to load those 50 shells on my Dillon SL900. Theoretically that would come out to 1200 and hour. However, I think the most I've ever done in an hour is around 500, and maybe about 1250 shells or 5 flats on a rainy day.

Hummm! 350 flats times 250 cartridges per flat =87,500 shells. 60 seconds times 60 minutes times 24 hours = 86,400 seconds per day. Hummm! That's fast!!!

I'm thinking WPT unloaded factory loads into his garage.

Given our long cold winters here in MN, I prefer to load a few boxes a night everyday after work. There may be a cocktail and some quiet time mixed in there, but it makes for a good wind down after work.

Know that you meant to be inquiring about shotshells and not metallic reloading, but...

A friend of mine using Dillon 1050 presses routinely produces 1,000 to 1,200 handgun and/or rifle rounds an hour for twelve hour stretches.

That's 12,000 to 14,000 rounds per day -- routinely.

This includes all case prep and hopper filling but does not including boxing the finished cartridges.

Would not argue that this is benchrest record setting ammo, but you could win a High Power match with it or put a serious hurt on a prairie dog town.

HMB,

I'm not as fast as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was ... I don't even own a reloader, got rid of it over 25 years ago ... I had a Coach who has long since passed away that always said shoot less but shoot new, of course thats when shells were cheap and there were 20 boxes to a case ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
