    I have pretty much decided I am only going to buy shells on sale or with rebates. The best I found was gen 1 blackcloud being sold off for the "new" stuff....15.99 a box of 3.5 inch 1.5 ounce, I like roman candles. I really haven't found any deals on the heavier stuff, I might a box or 2 on occasion with rebates but I just dread the thought of spending close to $200 for 100 shells. Hevi x looks interesting but wish a case of 3 inch was more like $250 not $350. I just don't have time to reload. What areally some deals you have snagges

    Last thanksgiving I found a little over a case of Remington Nitro Steel 3" 1 3/8 BB for $8 per box and a case of Sportsman Steel BB for $5 per box. Normally I wouldn't buy BB, but I couldn't pass up the deal. They've turned out to be a great buy.

    This year I got a case of 20 ga black cloud and another of 12 ga black cloud for $3.50 per box after the rebate. Plus a case of 20 ga prairie storm Steel for $7 per box.

    And finally I got a case of #4 and another of #2 Rio blue steel 3" 1 1/4oz for $9 per box.

    Currently I have 90 some boxes of steel that were all bought for under $9.50 per box in the last 2 years.

    After season every year the local walmart has all of the shotgun ammo on clearance. Boxes of Xperts, Federal blue box, Remington sportsmans and nitro steel for $5 per box. My cousin is a deprtment manager there and tells me the day it goes on sale. :grvn All 3" and 2 3/4". I haven't looked at the price of the 3.5" ammo because I haven't touched them for over 15 years.

    Any time you can buy steel waterfowl loads for less than $10 a box (of 25), grab all they have.

    $58 cases of Rem sportsman 3", $88 cases of 3" Nitro steel at walmart this summer. Lots of other loads on clearance, no idea what all I bought off the top of my head but for 3 of us was something like 8 cases.

    Years ago I bought a bunch of 3" PMC BBBs for $6 a box. I don't know exactly how many I bought but I am still shooting them at geese. That would've been when I was in college and I was done in 04. They also had 2 3/4" pmc 2s for $5 and I bought everything they had. I hunt ducks a lot more so they didn't last but a few years.

    When they go on sale at Walmart ask for the cash price for it all. Buddy does that and often they will take off another 10-15% from the clearance price to sell it all in one shot. But you gotta use cash no card.

    I never pay more than $10 a box, have been shooting the Federals for years, this year I jumped on the Black clouds, under $9 a box for 12ga and 10ga were under $19 delivered to my Door.

    Many years ago a Sportmart was going out of business and I got Active shells, 20 per box for $2.50 a box, I bought all they had and the shopping cart broke on the way to the truck.
