Field Shot

Is it just me, or has the price of field shot gone up recently?

I am looking for size 6, with high brass, and I can't seem to find ANYTHING for less than $15 a box. I know I haven't purchased it recently, but really?! Is it really that much for 25 shells now?

I just started getting back into small game hunting, and I want to use my 12 gauge, but jeez...it seems like its definitely gotten more pricey.

Re: Field Shot

Run of the mill hi-brass 1 1/4oz 12 ga. run between $15 and $20. Low brass field loads run about $6 to $10.

Re: Field Shot

Cabelas has herters pheasant loads #4 shot 1-1/4oz they're $79.99 a case so if they're sold as single boxes I'd guess around $9 a box

Re: Field Shot

I don't know if you have Dunham's where you are, but i believe their high brass was somewhere around 12 or 13 last time I was in there.

Re: Field Shot

watch for rebates: I have done several rebates now with Remington with $3 back per box. Limit 4 per purchase, but use another address if you buy more. Express Long Range #5 is what I like....

Re: Field Shot

I shoot Fiocchi Golden Pheasants they are around $17.99-$19.99 per box of 25. Quite the shell. 1 3/8 oz of Nickel Plated 4's,5's or 6's. Couldn't ask for a better small game shell.

Re: Field Shot

It has been a while since I've purchased field shot, so I'm just out of the game lately.

Thank you for the Remington link!
