I am looking help my grandson produce his own ammo for a couple of great-grandad's shotguns. Anyone have an affordable, single stage 16-g press in good working order they'd consider parting with? Hulls and wads would also be a plus, if available. Thanks and be well.

MEC makes a 16 gauge press.

Ballistic Products has some wads and hulls. They may even have the press.

Check eBay, there’s one there now $249 or so.

I use the Lee load all 2.

Last I saw, was around $65 and you could also buy the stuff to do 20 and 12 ga too.

I've loaded many cases through mine.

Yes, it's mostly plastic. It's not as bomb proof as a mec. But, it's good enough for the young man to get started out on.

I have 2 Lee Loadall-2s - 12ga, 16ga and conversion kit for 20ga for either of them. They can be bought for about $70+/- from various locations. They are easy to operate, work well for me but not as robust (not abuse-proof) as MEC, Hornady or Dillon or such.

Ballistic Products has Cheddite primed hulls in stock as well as a decent selection of wads . . . and presses.

Powders are still difficult to find.

Get a Lyman Shotshell reloading manual for load recipes for nearly all gauges/hulls/powder combinations.

Good on you to help out your grandson and get him introduced to reloading. My grandson is too far away for me to do the same.
