With the current prices on loading components and easy availability of 12ga ammo, its hard to sell 12ga loaders. Most loaders can load 12ga for almost the same price as Wally World ammo such as Estate and Winchester Universals, so most don't. The only reason that I load 12ga is to tailor the loads to my guns.

Unless you do like me and load a round that isn't made commercially, like my 3/4oz of 8.5s in 12 gauge

Gun clubs went on sale for 3.97 a box. That's cheap! I think my cost is about that or maybe 3.50 a box.
But then again I like my 3/4 and 7/8 loads I make.

I make spreader loads for 20 gauge and save quite a bit on those.

28 gauge and 410 is where you can save a bundle and I do reload 410 bore weekly.

Can you save more than you can on 410 bore? I load them for $3.00/box and they sell for around $10.00/box

You can shoot factory Win AAs in 28 for $4.00/box. All it takes is a little planning.
Academy sells them for $8.99/box; Winchester rebate takes off $2/box. Sell the empties for the low price of .12/each and you take another $3/box off.

I've got 3 of em, 12 gauge, 20 gauge and 410 bore. The oldest is 50 years old and the newest is around 35 years old.

Never had a minute's trouble with any of em. Great presses.
