I found an interesting video on reloading shotshells in the field... I'm thinking about giving this a try, but with some all brass .410 shells for my m6 rifle.

Here is the video.

Edit: I obviously have some homework to do before trying out any loads....

I find the idea of carrying 5 shells, but having the means to make 100 reloads very interesting. :wavey:

Very interesting, I wish he would have broke down the powder amounts and bb amounts for 20 gauge and .410 too

I think its mainly intended for survival, if you were limited on the amount of shells you are carrying but can find the items in a camp that are required to build a set of new rounds, it's about using things around you to stay alive and comfortable.

why read GTR at all when you could just buy ammo at 400/case?

This is just another technique for self reliance, thats all. He's not saving a ton of weight by carrying fewer shells, but he is saving on volume. He is saving on expense too.. in another video he seals the rounds with deer tallow instead of beeswax, a much more renewable resource.

I guess I find it interesting, but can't force you to do the same. :supergrin:

I keep those items in my camp all year round for other reasons, it's about using resources that you have available and putting them together where they normally wouldn't to achieve results

I guess some people get some satisfaction from doing things themselves or in a different way.

Again someone asked earlier why you are posting on GTR?

This is a reloading forum.

Its because some people only reload to save $. If they could buy it almost as cheap, they wouldn't bother.
Others of us enjoy the challenge of doing it. Or try to produce ammo that is superior to what you buy at the store.
Or just to say we can do it.
