    I friend of mine purchased the Rem 12ga 1oz 1290 fps #8 for 2.98 if buy a flat. I went there today at the Atlanta store and got a few 12s and a flat of 20s. I would have purchased a lot more but I just went way over my budget for 20 bags of shot but the price was 20.00. How could I pass that up. Check it out.

    I've been buying 'cases' of 10 boxes/25rds per box at Dick's. Are these what you're referring to as 'flats'?

    striper, are those boxes a 20 shell count or 25 shell count? Remington has an "all purpose" shell that is boxed in 20 shells not 25 shells.

    I just bought 10 flats of Rem 12 ga. 1oz. 1290 fps shells at Dicks on sale for $2.98 per box, but they were 20 per box. This still works out to $3.75 per 25 shells. Regular price was $3.98.

    Walmart sells the Federal game loads for $3.88 a box and no flat discount. That's the price per box, if you buy 1 or 100. If you get lucky and live in MI they may be marked less and Walmart has to honor the sticker price. There is a thread on here that everyone is flaming me for buying shells for $2.98 a box and that was the price tag on the box. I bought all they had.

    Once upon a time, a case of shotshells had 20 boxes/500 shells. Some years ago, manufacturers changed to current packaging consisting of 10 boxes/250 shells. Many, perhaps most of us refer to the 10 box/250 shell packaging arrangement as a "flat" of shells.

    To the best of my knowledge, nobody sells a true case anymore.

    Be sure to check to see if your Dick's Sporting Goods store still gives the 10% off a purchase of 10 or more boxes. If they do, you can get 10% off of the $2.98 Special Purpose loads as that is an individual box price, not a flat price. Add in a $10 off of a $50 purchase coupon and the shells get cheap.

    I just bought 3 flats at Dicks consisting of 2 flats of Remington Gun Clubs (10 boxes of 25 2 3/4 D 1 1/8 oz #8) at $39.39 per and one flat of Remington Gameloads (10 boxes of 25 1 oz 7 1/2 1290'/s) for $36.63. In addition I signed up for a credit card (as I do everytime) for an additional $10 discount. Also I received double scorecard points ($115.40 X 2=230.8 points). You get sent a $10 discount coupon for every $300 spent. In general my cost figures to be 4100 or $33/flat or $3.30/box. Beats reloading on a cost basis for sure.

    Topgun;

    You sign up for a cart EVERY time? And they don't get wise to it? Do they send you the cards?

    Topgun - they may get the last laugh on the credit card. Everytime you apply for a credit card that goes onto your credit rating. If you do it often, it will have a detrimental impact on your credit.

    unsingle- It is not a credit card. It is a card that keeps tract of your purchases.

    Pat, it's a credit card. I signed up yesterday and got 10 bucks off my deal.

    The card can be just for Dick's purchases, or it can be a Platinum Visa. I chose the store card since I hate the multiple Visa concept.

    So I would like to know about the multiple card question also. And I would additionally like to know about coupons, the ones I was using expired 10/31.

    Well, Guys I lied. The boxes were only 20!I just do not have the number 20 engrained in my head when it comes to boxes of shells. I saw the case the boxes were the same width, Head says 25, I buy. I dont read the small print. DUH!!However, with lead prices the way they are I figure its a decent investment. The shot I got at 20.00 a bag was from a guy who quit shooting 10 years ago and I met him at a dove hunt. I got 1500.00 worth of supplies for 700.00.

    Striper ... they still work out cheaper per shell than purchasing the 25ct boxes. Ya did good now keep your receipt and go back to Dicks and get the Remington rebate form. If you spent $100 to $250 on just Remington ammo on one receipt you get a $10 cash card, $250 to $550 you get a $20 cash card and over $550 you get a $30 cash card from Dicks.

    Actually with the Dick's Master Card you get 6.66% back on Dicks purchses and 3.33% back on other purchases so the example above of $66.66 in gas would result in a 2.20 rebate back at Dicks. If you bought $66.66 at Dicks it would be $4.40.

    Dicks was out when I went in about a month ago and they gave me a rain check for 10 flats at the sale price. They had to special order them but I am picking them up tomorrow. So if they are out ask for a rain check at the sale price.
