I think the most I've ever paid was $50/flat and that included shipping. If I have to pay $34/box for non tox dove loads I'll buy one box for show, shoot lead and roll the dice. I haven't hunted but opening day in at least 4 years and don't think I opened the second box but maybe once. I figure I've got enough shells to last the rest of my life.The day I have to pay $34 for a box of dove loads will be the day I quit dove hunting.
You can drop doves at 50 yards with a 28 gauge shooting lead. I did it in Argentina. They flare at about 40 yards from your blind. 1237 doves with 2650 shells.
Pretty close to 50%Not a real good shot are ya.
