Six flavors of target 9mm in stock. Looks like the run is over. Of course its still overpriced........
Semi-related. Saw a FB page for a reloading components supplier that I follow. They stated that they were almost back to same day shipping. Iirc it was on May 7 and they were shipping orders from May 5 and 6. Almost out of the woods supply wise I think. Remains to be seen where prices go with the election in Nov.

I've used metric shit tons of RIO 00 Buck... still have a ton left, too. The only problem with that ammo, is the crimp on the shell ends up making the shell a c-hair longer, and in some cases this will reduce the capacity of your shotgun by one round.

Brain fart... the crimp on @djbradles shells is normal... this is the screwy one they used on the 00 buck.....

ETA: I just measured the shell... technically these are 2.5 inches as measured, but I think most "2.75" shotgun shells are considerably shorter than even 2.5 in, which leads into the capacity
thing. So these are "within spec" but slightly longer than avg.

Gee, that overshot card looks pressed down pretty far (looks like one). You could take probably a good 1/8” off that top!
I think the plastic of the shell itself though is rolled down and that actually holds the card thing in place. I have had a shitload of this
stuff for a long time. I used to buy cases of it for like $125 or something. I think I still have like half a case left. Went through many NES pumpkin and car
shoots with that stuff. [laugh]

Questions are, how does it shoot, how is the quality and consistency, and would or do you use it for hunting or defense?

I just renewed my Prime account and I was charged a sales tax, what the hell is that about? I also only placed 1 order last so I thought there was some kind of a discount if your orders do not equal your fee.

I think the real question is: why aren't you shooting more?
I've only been once since moving to Utah last July, and that was really only a function test of my new Glock 43X. Rumor is there's a secret range in Preston, Idaho (30 min north) that is open. If nothing else, I need to function test that 9mm AR pistol I got last week! ;)

I called them but they are closed to phone calls. I emailed this morning but no response yet.
I sent them several emails to [email protected] because they shipped me the wrong ammo. I got no response.
I did get a response from them when I sent a note via the message feature. Look at the lower left part of the page "Leave a message"

To many horror stories at this time with target sports. I would suggest hunting down ammo at local stores . Just keep reading that’s people are getting wrong ammo and taking to long to ship.
