    Visited the Gander Mountain in Greensboro NC yesterday. They are doing a remodel and a grand opening so to speak.

    I noticed a ton of staff organizing all the ammo and what did I see on top of a display housing single boxes of Rio trap shells?

    On top is a sign stating that you can only buy 10 boxes a day to make it fair for everybody.

    FYI

    Our local BiMart has a two box limit. Hardly worth the gas for two boxes. Mark

    Gander is a rip-off!! Im amazed if anyone buys ammo there. They stopped selling most reloading supplies in WI because they couldnt meet a minnimum price mark up and be competitive.

    I picked up 3 flats of AA's at the local Academy yesterday, here in Fort Worth to fill out my rebate. They had pallets of Estates dove load for 5.49 per box and pallets of Rios' hunting load. One of their stores now has lots of STS and AA's. They are getting plenty in now.

    Mine has a tag for "chilled shot" @ $37/bag. There has never been a bag there since they put the tag up. They have magnum shot, that's $60/bag, and they have plenty of that LOL

    Gander in Rockford,il.magnum shot $60.00- Claybuster wads $15.99 for 500 ct.-Remington sts 209 primers 100 ct. only no bulk $5.00. STS and AA $9.99 a box as of 8/24/13
    When i worked there the mark up was unreal, even with my discount i couldn't shop there. I wouldn't give Gander Mountain dime of my money.

    My local Dicks Sporting Goods had a sign up for the same thing (this was for shotgun shells), in addition to their one box of rifle/pistol ammo per order.

    Take a Gander at it, and then spend money else where...
