    I was wondering how much you shotgun shell reloaders are loading a box of shells for. I am using noblesport primers, claybuster wads, aa hulls, 17.5 grains of red dot and 3/4 once of homemade lead shot in a 12 gauge and loading for $1.59 a box. My shot maker is homemade from a cast iron skillet and only one dripper. It's slow but it works quite well. Anyway was just curious on the cost.

    I use this calculator.

    Mine comes up to $3.59 a box with the shot cost approaching $2 a box for 1 1/8 oz loads so we are close on the other components. My hull costs are 0 as I pick them up at the range.
