    Can someone school me on this? I just inherited a butt-load of stuff from my grandpa and have no idea. I'm guessing most of it is all out-dated and unusable.

    I have been given approximately:
    MEC 500 reloader
    1000 old school Winchester paper used shotshells
    200 or so plastic used shotshells
    About 75 pounds of 7-1/2 shot
    About 1200 or so primers, probably worthless by now being so old
    About 10 pounds of various powders, again, very old
    A few hundred plastic "Power Piston" wads
    5 gallon bucket 3/4 full of various fiber and felt wads.

    Is any of this useful? To me, it's mostly junk as I rarely shoot my shotgun, and have no interest in reloading for it. I'd imagine the powder and primers are junk by now, probably 30 years old or so. What about the rest of the stuff? Does anyone reload paper shotshells anymore?
