Component ?'s from a Noob

Hey guys, I ordered a MEC steelmaster press in 20 gauge last night and a lyman's reloading book from

As far as powder, primer, etc. goes I have a few questions

1. How many rounds will 11lb. of 7 1/2 shot make? (I calculated 201 rounds using 7/8 ounce of shot). Is that the way to do it? Cause at $30 for 11lb's (201) rounds doesn't sound to cheap when you add on the wads, primers, etc.

2. I have started to save my Remington gun club spent hulls. Are these any good? Or do I need to buy the Winchester AA's?

3. What is the difference between lead and steel shot? I'm just shooting clays if that helps. Will steel hurt my shotgun?


Insert witty, comical, and/or significant quote here.
