Fleet Farm in my area had the Federal Black Cloud Snow Goose rounds in 5 shot the other day. Never saw the needs for anything larger if you are shooting waterfowl.

I was at a Bass Pro over the weekend and they had only two boxes! Two boxes total of waterfowl load -12 gauge 3.5". I did not bother to look at the shot size as I stopped looking when I saw 3.5"...

Keep an eye on Rogers sporting goods website. My brother bought a case of 3" Rios there a couple weeks ago for $167


Gotta live up to the nickname...

I was going to say the same. I checked their site, but don't have much at the current.

Steel shot is about all you can find right now here. Lead is what's rarer than hen's teeth.

I am still going through shooting bags, blind bags, open boxes in the basement trying to scrounge some up. Some of it is a leeeetle rusty and dirty but I think it will shoot. I even found a half-box of PMC goose loads that are about 20 years old.

If you can even find any, buy it!

Yeah I think a lot of people around here duck hunt although I am quite a ways from the river so imagine it's more popular over that way. I've checked Walmart's ammo section about half a dozen times in the past few weeks and EVERY time they had several different kinds of steel shot. The second to the last time they had ONE case of 12ga 7.5 lead, and I bought it, and then today they had ONE box of 20ga 7.5 lead shot and I bought it too. But always steel. Then I drove down to the co-op last week and they had tons of steel and a little bit of very overpriced lead shot.

Bought some at a local Walmart a couple weeks ago, had 4 box packs(100 shells) of #2 and #4 Federal for $45 each case. So $11.25 per box wasn't bad.
