Shotshell reloading question

Is there any kind of low volume shotshell reloading set up for the 10 Gauge?  Something like the Lee loader or a hand press?

just looking at all the 10 Ga hulls in my cabinet and wondering if there was a cheap way to make them go boom again

    Speaking of that...I had a friend that used to load 10 gauge #8 shot and used his SP10 for dove hunting...

    Saw a YouTube video about loading brass shot shells using a black knife wood, a dowel and a mallet.  I think you. Could do the same for any shotshell if you want to go super cheap.

    It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    Lee made a 10ga manual reloader.  Years ago my goose hunting friends used one to reload 10’s primarily because 10ga wasn’t commonly stocked at local stores. 
    there should be some old lee loaders out there.  The primer tool is common across all sizes so the only parts needed are the brass resizing die and the crimp starter.   I don’t know the availability of 10ga wads / all in one shot cups.

    Or get a 12ga lee loader and turn the resizing die and crimp starter to 10ga
