Shotshell reloading

Do any waterfowling shotshell reloaders save money from reloading?
or save it rather? If so what setup do you use? (Wad, Hull, Shot, Powder, etc.... Thanks!)

Distributing or selling reloaded ammo requires an ATF ammunition manufacturer license if I'm not mistaken.

For the quantity of waterfowling shotshells I go through, its not really worth it.

I will shoot in a season of waterfowl hunting less shells than I will in a day of shooting trap. Just doesn't seem worth it to me for all the extra equipment and money I would need to put into it.

Saving $0.50 a box isn't worth my time. The only reason I would consider it is if I wanted to tweak my own shells to perfection.


I need to work on my shooting before the shells make a difference.

Getting consistent patterns with non-toxics is somewhere between an art and voodoo science. It's not as simple as lead and I haven't shot a full box in a season in many years. I would never re-coup the set-up costs at this rate. Good factory loads are also nearly waterproof and my reloads, not so much.
