i need to know if my reloder can do it. i have a 600 mec jr and the only thing i reload with it is 2 3/4" AA's. i thought about reloading some shells for turkey but really havnt looked into it much. all i see for reloading info is for steel shot are there any manuals for lead. all my shotgun books are old and dont have 3 1/2" in them. i guess thats what happens when you find a load you like.

you can reload 3.5 shells, just pick up the new LYMAN shotshell reloading manual pgs 144, 145, and 146 list 3.5 inch loads of 2 oz ond 2 1/4 oz of lead.:D
