    Will depend somewhat on gauge and shot size. Jake

    .

    About how much money do you save per box by buying a skid at a time ?

    Can the skid be mixed, or must it all be the exact same shell ?

    Never had a vendor who would not mix the pallet.

    For some reason last time we ordered Keman shells, they came in 96 cases per pallet. Mixed loads but all 1-1/8 oz. I remember the wooden pallets all stamped with fumigation proof marks.

    Most folks that palletize stuff like this use 2000 to 2500 lbs as their load. The reason is because that uses a common amount of wood and distributes the weight in a truck evenly. So you get approximately 24 to 30 pallet positions in a van or flat bed. So, 24 x 2250 = 54,000 lbs. You can do the rest of the math.

    The big 3 pack 96 to 112 depending on mfgr. Fed packs 15 per tier and Win & Rem pack 16 per tier.

    Foreign stuff varies due to pallet dimensions but usually is a few cases either side of 100.
