    Stopped at WalMart in Hermantown Minn tonight and almost craped my pants. AA shells were priced at $7.57. The cheapy winchester shells were now over $23.00 for a 4 pack. WOW. Wont be long and they will price everyone out of the sport. alex

    Wal-Mart near Salt Lake City, Winchester Universals are now 23.88 up from 16.97. Over a 40.5% increase. They still had some of the Fed. 4 packs for 16.97. Not complaining too much,nothing we can do about it anyway but I do agree that a lot of people, some good shots too will be forced out and the excitement of the competitive spirit will dwindle some. I personally hope some things will change to make our sport affordable and keep it so. Also, I'm the type that will keep shooting and competing as long as I have any money at all including my credit cards. I've had to quit too many times in the past and I'll keep finding ways to make ends meet somehow. Hope we all can do the same. Sorry for the rant; I don't do it very often. Hang in there and "Never say die". LOL

    If you like the Federals, ask the department manager to order you more and they will honor the current price that you ordered them at. I've got 10 cases coming for $3.88 a box. Sounds like a really good deal these days.

    Yeah , I got some real sticker shock on 3" .410's the other day. Looks like my rem 1100 .410 lightweight just became a wall hanger.

    I've noticed the two local wal marts here have restocked the Federals for the $16.XX price for the time being. I'm buying like there going out of style.

    Trackerdan, Are you using them for trap or sporting clays? Do they compare with the "Top Gun"Federal shell? glenn
