Yes, you can reload mini shotgun shells. Shotgun shells are reloadable because they are nothing more than a small metal tube with a primer at one end and gunpowder at the other. The gunpowder is what launches the bullet out of the barrel of the gun, while the primer is what lights the gunpowder and starts the whole process.

When you reload a shotgun shell, you simply replace the old gunpowder with new gunpowder. You then put a new primer on top of the old primer, and seal everything up by crimping (or folding over) the metal lip of the shell casing. It’s a pretty simple process, and most experienced shooters can reload a shotgun shell in just a few minutes.

It is possible to reload mini shotgun shells, but it requires a great deal of skill and practice. Not only must the reloader ensure that the rounds are properly seated and crimped correctly, but they must also ensure that each round is properly loaded with powder and shot.

It is generally recommended that novice reloaders start by reloading full-sized shotgun shells before attempting to reload mini shells, as the process is more difficult and there is greater potential for mistakes. With enough practice, however, anyone can learn how to reload mini shotgun shells successfully.
