Most of the guys that reload shotshells....shoot a few hundred shells a week ....for sporting clays, trap or skeet...but I also load some " 00" Buck for tactical shotgun practice..../ and even on shells with # 9 or #8 shot in them you'll easily save $ 2 a box over even cheap promo shells....and way more on any other types of shotshells.

MEC Grabber will give you about 8 boxes an hour ( 200 shells )....
MEC 9000 HN's will easily give you 20 boxes an hour ( 500 shells ).../photo below is of the MEC 9000 HN's .....the blue press is the Dillon 650 ( for metallic - handgun and rifles)....
On a Dillon 650 press, with a case feeder ---- I easily loaded about 6 boxes ( 300 rds this morning about 20 minutes). I had some time to kill before I went to my office .....
I have the luxury of having my presses all set up my basement shop / heated and dry and ready to go.../ nobody messes with things in there when I'm not looking.../ so I just go down and run what I need, when I need it -- depending on what caliber is set on the Dillon 650...or which press is set to go on the hydraulic ...( I have 9000 HN's in 12, 20, 28ga and .410 ) ...and I have one motor and pump - and just rotate 2 of the 4 presses to the bench as needed.

The shop isn't fancy ....but it works for me as a one man operation.
