    Default Best place for online shotgun shells?? I'm in a pinch.

    I'm supposed to be going to a pheasant shoot on 2/9. It will be a tower shoot on released pheasants, so it will be pass shooting, not flushing.

    They allow lead shot, but no shot size bigger than #6.

    I've got a case of shells (to split with a friend) on backorder from Mack's but they cannot tell me when they will come in and I'm getting nervous. They need to be at least 1 1/8 oz shot, preferably high brass or my Benelli likely won't cycle them. I would prefer 1 1/4 oz high brass.

    There is virtually nothing in the Atlanta area that I have found in #6. I found some light 1 oz loads that won't cycle and some really expensive loads that are not as good as what I've got on B/O from Macks for quite a bit more than what Mack's is charging.

    Can anyone tell me other good online shotshell sources that I should check out??

    Thanks in advance.

    Rogers sporting goods would be my second choice after Macks

    Rogers has always been my go to. Super fast processing of orders to ship.

    Thanks, I found some shells that I think will work even better at Roger's for just a couple of buck more per case after shipping.

    I knew the RTF wouldn't let me down. I had heard of Roger's but never ordered and wouldn't have thought of them most likely.

    Try MidwayUSA, everyone is getting short on supply due to our current government actions.

    I know supplies are low everywhere, but you could try Cheaper Than Dirt, Sportsman's Guide and Georgia Arms.

    Georgia Arms sells a lot of once reloaded ammo that a lot of local police use for target practice (FMJ). I bought 1,000 rounds of .40 cal right after the election. I wish I had bought more. If the order is large enough shipping is free. I doubt they have the .30-06 though.
