With the scarcity and price of 20 gauge ammo now is it worth loading? I may shoot 3 cases a year at dove and crow, and another case at small game.
Yes, If you keep it up for more than a few years. Yes, if you stock up on components and not have to worry about what you can find when you want it.
Decent target loads and hunting loads can be different situations. Especially if Non-tox is a requirement. You will have a hard time buying non-tax that isn't steel under $40 a box. And you best buy it when it is available. And lead is not going to be an option in the not too distant future.
Current hunting load reality check....Be sure to check out the hunting loads and especially the non-tox. https://www.federalpremium.com/shotshell/
