    I see the shell house prices posted, but does anyone know what the prices will be at wal-mart in Sparta??? Kind of guessing they may be the normal buck or two less. Harold

    When I checked two weeks ago Winchester AA's were $70/flat and Remington STS/Nitro were $77/flat at Wal Mart in Sparta. I did not check Federal but will try to do that later today.

    A friend was at the Sparta Walmart this past Monday, he bought AAs for $70 a flat plus tax. They told him that the price on AAs was going up to $74 plus tax the following day. Also, they were getting in their supply of Federals next week. I'd suggest calling to verify they received them before going.

    Instead of reinventing the wheel fellas, why don't we just cut and paste the threads on this subject from the last several years and call'er done???


    Repetitions of this sort year to year remind me of an old Veteran friend of mine who's 92 and got shot up during the Battle of the Bluge by a damned krout. Bless Mr. Sal's heart, he has Alzheimer's and tells the same stories over and over and over.


    Your repetitive ramblings are similar, but without the justifying explanation--or charm.

    I don't know what shells you guys are buying, and I am sure that makes a difference, but last year I went to the shell house...then to Wal-Mart, and went back to the shell house because the price on the shells I was buying was exactly the same! I wound up winning a case of AA shells from Gamaliels! Martinpicker

    Do the shells at Walmart have the Grand logos on them?

    I prefer to support those companies that support our sport. I appreciate Gamaliels being at the Grand. The nice guys at Gamaliels also will carry your shells to your car. J.G.Sayle

    I'll second the remark of buying from Gamaliel as well. They used to give out the shell rebates to you right there as well. No waiting around, plus chances to win shells. Why bother to go to Wally World in the first place. break em all Jeff

    Agreed with JGS and Mark. Worth a couple bucks for the convenience and supporting a good company.
