Anyone have a lead on where to find some duck loads 2 3/4 or 3 inch 12 ga? Kicking myself for not getting enough before the season like normal. Located in DFW

Rogers sporting goods. Buy a case for cheaper than you'd buy it per box. Ships free.

Rogers is where I’ve ordered the last 10 cases over several years. Usually fast but everything has been slow shipping for me lately.

Ive learned the last few years that its way easier ordering shells than driving around DFW looking for what you shoot. Like most said above. You can normally get them in in about 3 days.

Depending on where you are located in Texas, no more than 4 days shipping from Kansas City. I'm in North Texas and it takes 3 days for UPS to ship it from that region. Same from Mack's

Or just go to Academy and get some Super X or Monarch steel shot, 3" 2 shot...? You don't HAVE to shoot your Blackclouds and Bismuth.. At least all 3 Academys around me have some

Same in Abilene at Academy.

...and ...[dramatic pause, deep sigh, hangs head with shame]...Walmart, too; both of them.


...on the plus side, ordered a case of #3 3" BCs on 1/3 - they are supposed to be on the front porch by 9:00 pm tonight. That just MIGHT get to the end of the season.

Boss sent out an email last week. Basically said metal prices have gone up, they should be able to fill their orders, but the supply crunch is affecting them just like everyone else and hopefully they will have powder to keep up with demand.

I was at academy a few weeks ago and they didn't have a shotgun shell on the rack, not even lead shot. Hopefully this gets resolved or I won't be able to shoot many clays this summer.

I have about 15 cases of 2 3/4" & 3" Fiocchi, Remington Nitro, Rio Blue Steel, Winchester Drylok, Browning BXD, wish I would have seen this earlier, I'd of hooked you up. Nothing fast, 1400 - 1475ish IIRC

I have way more than I will ever be able to use.
