    Default Where to buy poppers?

    Could someone let me know the best place to buy 12 guage poppers now? Our club was purchasing them from an individual who has now passed away and we need a new source.

    I am going to assume uniqueshotshells.com is now out of business? If this is true, it is a major bummer since they were the only place I could find 20 ga. poppers

    I reload 12 ga for skeet, and have been reloading poppers following a recipe from Ballistic Products. Like much of what I do, it's an opportunity to earn about 80 cents per hour vs buying them. If you're dead set on 20 ga, you may be able to load your own if you have a reloader. I don't have any worries about the quality, but I DO have concerns about liability in our litigation rich society. I only shoot them myself, just in case.

    I reload them as well using Lee Load-All 12 gauge reloader. I dont use any powder, just primers, and this little machine works well and is cheap. Training days and hunt tests are great times to collect empty hulls, too! You can get these guys pretty cheap on ebay sometimes ($35), otherwise they are about $50 or so new, depending on the site....
