    Hi Folks, has anyone seen these Top Gun shells in Oregon? I'd like to find some that don't have to be shipped. Thanks David

    David, they have them here in the local Gander Mountain stores for $5.50 a box. A very good deal since most everything around here at that price is the 3 dram 1200 fps loads, like the walmart 4 packs and the like. Good Luck and Break-em all. JEff

    I saw some empties on the ground, yesterday, at North Jersey Clay Target Club. I didn't know what they were.

    I have them, they came from Beikirchs (sp?) in Rochester, NY. I am using mine for "extras" only! Can't tell ya how many people have laughed until they were told why they were pink. Hope you can find them. Jo Ann

    Sort of a collector shell besides being for a great cause.

    I picked some in Rochester also. A poster here wanted a box so I sent one to him with a total including shipping because I was not sure what it would costincluding shipping. . Never received payment. They had some left a couple weeks ago. I'll pick up another case when I am there again.

    Just put 10 flats of empties on the ground in Florida. Many shooters did not have a clue and it was interesting watching them pull the pink boxes out of the trash cans and reading. It was for a very good cause and still is.

    Too bad all you box pickers at the Southern Grand. Dumpster-diving Tammy and son retreived most of those pretty, pink boxes that now are rapidly re-filling with fresh reloads!!

    Jerry I must have kept missing you. I would have gladly shared and I did trade with a couple of ladies who wanted them to keep.

    have not yet seen these shells in my area, was wondering if part of the money from the sale of these goes to susan g koman foundation or are they just to show support for the cause.

    From the label:

    Federal Cartridge has joined the fight against breast cancer. A portion of the sales of this product will go directly to the effort to find a cure.

    No further elaboration but I am sure the money will get there.

    What would be a good 1 0z. reload for these?? My wife and three daughters think I should shoot and reload some. NOW they are beginning to have some interest in Dad's trap shooting!
