Re: Shotgun shells



MDEQ has a shooting range website.  I didn't see anything on case recycling but there may be info you can use.

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/

Best of luck,
