    Isn't it rather odd and bad timing for Graf's Reloading to go up $0.45 on shot to $32.95 - this week? I thought everything that went into making and delivering shot was going down???? What are you finding elsewhere in the market - any cheaper shot?

    Cheaper??? $32.95 is a bargin compared to the $50-$60 that Bass Pro gets for shot.

    Nobody in their right mind would go to a sporting goods store like Bass Pro for shot!

    Ken X,

    Agreed but you do if it's the only game in town.

    no eric, you dont buy it from there even if it is the only place in town. Just order it and have it delivered. Order enough of it so that the shipping will balance out.

    To be sure I just called the local Bass Pro in Ft. Lauderdale to check on the price. The person in the hunting department said when I asked the price; "goodness gracious, you're wanting to spend $60 on a bag of shot?"

    Tuscarora99,

    I would if I reloaded but I use the Winchester/WalMart value packs. $23/100. Does the job for me.

    $33/bag isn't bad. I just got some west coast for $30 that was part of a larger buy. Bad news there though, when the shot was picked up at the West Coast facility, the place was operating as a warehouse with most of the production people having been laid off. I don't know the details but I hope it is a temporary measure.

    Just for a reference, doesn't Graf's include shipping? If so, it might be that the shipping costs have increased.

    Mixer ... that is like $57.50 a flat without tax and even I know that depending on the recipe and such that is about $12 to $15 more than reloads.

    Just think of it ... for every value pack of 100 you buy you could have 125 shells if you reloaded.

    Mr. Newbius, I think that he would have much less than 100 shells at $23 per 100 if he reloaded, and bought all his components at Bass Pro. LOL LOL. Break-em all. Jeff
