Re: shells

Graf and Sons is a good place if looking to buy online

They do not charge shipping just a $5.95 flat handling fee, no matter how much it weighs(unless it is target ammo).......and they usually have pretty good prices too...

Re: shells

Careful buyibg some "special" stuff...value packs etc...often have a lessened amount of lead in it...if i wanna shoot 7/8ths or 1oz of lead i'll go with a 20 gauge and carry a lighter gun....if im shooting a 12ga i want atleast 1 1/8oz of lead...but thats just me...

Seems minimal but patterns and hit birds or clays showed me enough difference to spend the extra buck or whatever a box..(been a good while sonce i bought shotgun ammo)

But..just wanted to throw that out there..lots of the cheaper stuff has less lead..

Re: shells

Pays to read the label when buying any "value pack" these days. Need to note the weight of the shot and the number of rounds per pack. Just looking at the price, no longer cuts it.

Pretty much true these days, whatever type of ammo one is buying. Some shotshells now come in boxes of 20, not 25. There are also now some boxes of 22 LR ammo that only contain 40 rounds, instead of the traditional 50.

Kinda like a half gallon of ice cream now being 1.5 quarts, etc. Need to pay attention to the "packaging".
