    Shot is 39.95 at the Vancouver Sprotsmans' this week,and I need about 6 boxes of shells for next week,so time to buy a bag.
    I have wads and pirmers just sitting there,so this gives me a chance to use them up :)

    shot shells can be a reail pain in the butt to load..the shot/wad column has to come out just about right for the crimp to set tight and look purty.
    For me,I find a hull/wad/shot combo that works and if it hits a knock down,I dont go tinkering with it.
    I don't save much reloading shotshells,but I can lighten the loads up,we don't need goose killers for targets 10 yards away.

    I saw it for $39.95 about three posts ago.
    Send Throckmorton a PM and ask him to reveal his super secret source.
    He doesn't like to share, but sometimes, if you pay attention, he'll slip up and accidentally tell you something like, "Shot is 39.95 at the Vancouver Sprotsmans' this week."

    Sorry, couldn't resist.
