Is it just me or are shotgun shells for dove super expensive this year and can’t be found anywhere? Does anyone have any idea where to find some reasonably priced shells? I know with the pandemic there are some supply shortages but does anyone have any idea when they’re going to get worked out? Just got a dog for dove and duck and now I’m worried I’m not going to be able to find enough shells to get him out to hunt. confused2

I’ve picked up a couple of cases at Cabelas for $85 a case, so not terrible. The FW store had a bunch of boxes yesterday.

I think just finding shells is the issue --- I wouldn't hold out for ""reasonably priced shells.""

I hit the Academy in Temple last Saturday and they had about 50 cases of 12 ga and maybe 25 or so of 20 ga. Also had plenty of bulk 5.56 stuff.

Walmart has had 12's and 20's for 5.94 box off and on. I've been able to pick up what I need getting some each time I go. The store in Crossroads had probably 30 boxes of 12's ounce and 1/8 this past weekend.

I have plenty of ammo, but when this Sh#t is over I'll never be close to being short.

yesterday evening I stopped by WM on my way home to pick up something my wife needed and they had probably 50 bricks of 22LR (325 & 525 count bricks) and both were selling for $.05 per round. I didn't need or buy any but they are selling all of their ammo at fair prices.

Components are hard to come by now, hopefully that will change soon.
