Hi eveyone, I'm a bit new to shotgunning, just purchased an 870 and had a few questions.

Typically, what type of ammo would one use for casual (once in a while) clay shooting.

And what is a reasonable price for that ammo, or what do you consider a fair price, looking for a price range, not "the best deal"

Clay shooting - #8 or #7.5 shot in 2-3/4" length

Price at Wally world usually runs about $22 - $25 for 100 shells.

What he said, but you have to buy the 4 pack (100 shells).

Be warned that not all Walmarts sell ammo, well at least not in the Los Angeles area stores. I would call ahead and confirm they do sell it.
