    Who said anything about SHTF?

    Some reloaders just can't justify paying for a proper shotshell press.

    I don't shoot many shotgun shells. I am doing it just for fun and learning how to load shot shells at the same time. (i know too much time on my hands) If i do start loading a lot of shot shell i will buy a Lee Loadall.

    I doubt you could find one, in usable condition, all there for $40.

    I've seen them go for near $100.00

    You probably could on GunBroker. They don't pop up as often but they do seem to go for more reasonable prices.

    I don't discount the fun of making your own lee loader but I think that there is a really romantice idea of loading shells "in the field" among many shooters. Howerver I think you could bring many, many more shells in the space it would take to bring along the supplies to load the shells. Nevermind the impracticalitties or hassle of loading your own shells off the back of a truck or some other field expedient table.
