Still have a few of the Extended Range shells left. Enough for a limit of birds if I get lucky.

you ned to start hoppin state lines, so you can burn more shells

i generally run through 12 to 15 every spring. i shoot coyotes, foxes, bobcats, and other scoundrels that come to turkey calls. also, once every ten yrs or so, i kill a bird.

seriously...i dont worry about cost of ammo. i just want the best shell in the chamber that i could be shooting. i dont drive hundreds of miles, walk bunches of miles, get up in the middle of the night, miss time at work and with family...to not be shooting the best killing load possible. thats why i dont screw around with bows in the turkey woods anymore, too

you hunt with the bow, and try and try. and finally one day, it happens...and you make a good shot on a fine gobbler. and the sumbitch runs off with your arrow, never to be seen again. screw that. i am glad i killed some with a bow, but i'm done with it. hevi shot it is, for me...until they come up with something better.

No kidding... Adding up the cost to actually go hunting, and then look at technically one of the most important tools of the hunt, $25+ a box of shells isn't a big deal!

No doubt, it has gotten expensive to go hunting. Especially if you hunt 150 miles from home as I do............and probably many of you too. I started to go back and purchase that box of Heavy 13 @ $29.99 after my original post until I realized one thing. That comes to $150.00 for a box of 25. I realize that I am a good bit older than some of you. I remember when a box of dove loads was less than $2.00 and the best high brass shells you could buy was less than $4.00. $150.00 is my line in the sand. I'll throw rocks at them.

Gas and food is mandatory for hunting. 6.00 a piece shells, not so much.

Especially when 1.20 shells kill them just as dead.

As many reasons as someone can find to justify paying 6.00 a piece for a shotgun shell, I can find as many reasons not to.

JMO.

I remember buying boxes of dove loads for my 20ga when I was a kid for around $5 a box. And they were heavy loads.

34yrs old soon to be 35yrs old and I've seen quite a bit of changes price wise during my time in the woods.

20 gauge shells are cheaper. I get them for about $3.50-4 per shell. Not enough savings not to use them.

in all honesty, before someone gets pissed off.........Im just kiddin. I won a ham at a turkey/ham shoot using a 20 ga. 1187 and fell in love with it..........I wish I had one.

It would have cost me 12.00 using the high dollar stuff over the last 6 years to kill the turkeys Ive kilt.

Ive got enough Winchester Supremes to last a lifetime at this rate though. No need to buy anything else
