    Shotgun Ammo

    Hey guys would like some recommendations for cheap ammo to put through my 12 gauge. A store in my area has a box of 250 shells for 59$, but they say its a "grab bag" that they put together. What are some average birdshot prices, and some cheap slugs? Perhaps a name/size so i can call in to see if they have it in stock? Cheers.

    Edit - Oh and what should i be buying for trap/skeet?

    Typically 7 1/2 bird shot for skeet. I think I paid $67.00 for the last batch of 250 Federals I bought, so $59 is a good price....I have no idea what they mean by a "grab bag" though. Slugs are going for over a buck each now, so I doubt there will be any in there, but I could be wrong.

    That works out to 7.50 for a box of 25. No bargain.

    The cheapest shells I've found are Federal Top Gun and Winchester Super Target at $54.95 a box.

    Clay target loads are usually restricted to 2-3/4", less than 3-1/4 dram, no shot size larger than #7-1/2, 8 and 9.

    I think I was buying 2 3/4 rifled slugs from Le Baron for $4.50 per 5. Cheap Winchester stuff!
