    Buck Shot in demand?

    I don't know about the rest of the country, but in LGS in Metro Philly they've been capping the amount of Buck Shot per customer. But today I got lucky and was sold a case (250rds) for $165.00. It made my day.

    Good deal. Yes, it is in demand. Right now, anything that is home defense is in demand. Before Sandy Hook, I was occasionally picking up the Remington 12 Gauge OO Buck 15 round value pack and now I never see it. I believe some of the ammo is starting to loosen up though, I've been seeing 9mm & 5.56 in stock - its over priced but it is in stock now with some of the online places.

    For awhile right after SH it was very hard to find any buckshot. But now it's not only everywhere again but the price is at rock bottom lows. Of course, it's also summer and all the hunting seasons are over with. I picked up 100 rounds of buck (asst brands) for $45 a few weeks back.

    I think you mean $18.99. Sometimes they put the 5 round boxes on sale for $2.99. Stuff is still good for the price. I can always find buckshot in 00 and of course birdshot. 000, #1, #4 at less stores especially #1.

    At big box stores around here, it's the only ammo that's always in stock.

    No it was on sale for $13.99 but now it back at its original price of $18.99 for 25 rounds.

    Locally, I haven't seen a shortage of Shotgun shells. It doesen't seem like the demand for them is as great as it is for other ammo.
    Stop whining and go make a difference!

    Walmart has had a selection of buckshot & slugs for the past several months while they were out of most all handgun and rimfire ammo. I guess it may be a regional thing.

    Well it looks like things are getting better for my Wal-Mart as well. I picked up 3 boxes of Remington 00 Buck - 15 round value-pack this afternoon. They have a 3 box limit per day so I decided to get my limit while they were in stock. After I got my 3 boxes, there were 3 boxes left. I asked the cashier about shipment days - I thought the truck came on Sunday nights but she told me the schedule varies and the shells I bought showed up Thursday night. I was a little surprised that there were still any left. As far as the SD handgun ammo goes, the shelves are still bare. I suppose 00 Buck isn't nearly in the demand as the SD handgun calibers.

    Now let's hope for the political climate to subside and hope the TSA has become satisfied with their recent thirst so the rest of us can start to have normal access again.

    The oo bk Sellier and Bellot (sp?) got the test today. Out of my Mossberg 590 20" open choke it makes a softball sized pattern at ten paces, which is the longest conceivable distance I'll be shooting in my apt. I tested further out with perfectly satisfactory results. So no fancy expensive HD ammo for me. I'm happy as a clam and glad I found buckshot.
