by "shell" I would assume shot gun and not rifle.
As for shot gun shells; Just depends on the shell. I use Remington STS's and get 7 to 9 reloads as a rule. I've done some winchesters and gotten 3 or 4. There are some higher end Winchester shells that can get you between 7 to 9 from what I hear but my reloader doesn't like Winshesters.
get a few different kinds and keep track of how many times you reload them. As long as they aren't splitting, they're good for another round.
I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.
