Re: Shotgun shells



Chuck,

Are you referring to shells that have been used for reloading and are no longer safe to reload again?  See the attached general information about reloading shells and safety guide on shell reloads.  I am no expert, but I believe there are companies that take spent shells and reload them.  I'm sure a bit of research for sources in your area would be as easy as contacting a shooting supply company.  See Gad Custom Reload Services web page http://www.gadcustomcartridges.com/

I've been asked by several gun clubs if used shotgun shells can be recycled after separating the metal base from the casing that holds the shot.  Bases are aluminum or brass, and cases are HDPE or paper.  These "empties" accumulate in huge numbers at skeet ranges after practice and competition.  Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated.
