Well I hope you did. Shotgun ammo was $47.99 a flat in December, it's $74.99 now.

No thanks needed.

Wow! For real! Last week the .223 was $279. I didn't order any since it was on backorder.

I got this price in December (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showpost.php?p=887234&postcount=13), I saved $120 over new MSRP plus when I ordered I had massive coupons... sweet!

A "flat" is just another word for "case". Don't ask me why shotgunners use that term, but they do.

There are 10 boxes of 25 rounds each, in a flat.

Trap, skeet and 5-stand are all games of 25 targets. Sporting clays, is shot with either 50 or 100 targets.

I'm not sure if the games of 25, or the boxes of 25, came first.

That is why I went to Irvington Arms today and bought an entire 550b set up for .223. Reloading here I come! Talk to Frank there. He will set you up and get you pointed into the right direction.

LOL, I saw you there. I was the asian dude waiting to talk to Frank about my powder and primers. Good choice on the 550, i have one and have been putting it to good use.

Boycott? Hell, just shoot .22 (10/22s, pistols and an AR with a Ciener). That way, you stay in shape. :D

That's it. They have pushed me far enough.
Boycott. Hey does that work with just one guy?:43:

You are not alone, everybody who has spent their ammo money already is right there with you in the boycott until ammo piggy bank is full again:D

Like I said in that other thread, by the end of the year your job will be gone,
your house will be worthless along with stocks and bonds, your 401K will look like the meteor crater and Hillary will be president... now what was that about the price of ammo?
