Finding shells

It depends what is available and is a real crap shoot. I was looking for 12 gauge high brass for an upcoming pheasant hunt and found 16 gauge high brass which I can also use. So far it has not been too much of a problem finding shotgun ammo, just grab what you can and keep looking. All the best...

most of the box stores seem to keep a fairly comprehensive selection of shotgun shells.

Thumbs up

I had to order them online, but i finally have Federal 20 gauge 2 3/4" 7/8oz #6 on the way. $77 for a case shipped, and I got the last one! Haven't be able to find any 2 3/4" 7/8oz #6 in several years. That's $7.70 a box! Little over 30 cents a trigger pull. Come on squirrel season! At least, good Lord willing, I will be able to keep some meat in the pot this winter.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004

I have not needed any shells in some time so have not shopped, but Wally World used to run sales this time of year, just before dove season. I just saw a bunch of shells stacked on the floor at the Alabama Farmers C0-0p in Florala.
