    When you shoot 100 target events 10 boxes to a flat is not too handy.

    They have had those out for several years now. Just something different. I don't think it's intended to replace anything.

    Bass Pro Shop has Remington Gun Glubs for $49.70 per FLAT (10 boxes) for the next three weekends. That would be $4 cheaper per 8 boxes than Walmart.

    My 12 ga B&P cases had 20 boxes. We've gone from cases to flats to whatever 8 boxes should be called. A hosing?

    When i see a post like this it makes me think that poeple must think we
    Americans are a bunch of fools.But if you thank about it why shouldn't they?
    They have fooled a lot of people.Take for example pay T V for 60 years it was FREE now people pay good money to watch reruns with commmercials.They have tried this shell stuff before.They tried to shells with 20 to a box so you had to buy 5 boxes to make 100,lucky it never caught on.Shells were 20 boxes to a case,then the retailer said this was to heavy and after they got the cases down
    to 10 boxes they raised the price to what a 20 box case used to cost and they even did it to the 28 and 410's and everyone knows how heavy them 410's are!Just my yearly rant but seems to me we got wake up sometime soon huh?

    When they find it difficult to increase the price, they reduce the quanity. Just look on the grocery shelves for a good example. The 16oz cans are now down to 13 to 15 oz's. Just look at the weight in a "pound" of coffee for example or canned vegetables. Would you expect anything different from the shell manufacturers?
    They will charge what the market will bear and streach that point if they can get away with it. Supply & Demand! They have..You want..Pay the freight!

    I never saw the Federal 8 pack until recently. At $44, it was a little cheaper than buying two 4 packs.

    Dicks was where I first seen the 8 box flats a number of years ago. Then they started showing up at wally worlds. I rarely go into a Dicks so I was wondering if they still have the 8 boxers as well.

    The bastards are now making a case of Coke with 20 cans. A half gallon of ice cream has 1.5 quarts. A half gallon of Florida's Natural orange juice has under 60 ounces.
