I know this is going to sound kinda odd but im looking for a company that uses blue shotgun shells. I want to use them for making keychain wedding favors and I figure I might as well buy them new so i can have some fun emptying them at clays so i can use the hulls for the keychains.8)

I believe Wolf makes blue ones but im not positive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 8)

I see...but the problem is I don't have a 28ga gun :(

Any companies make blue shells in 12ga?

RIO and B&P both make a 12-ga load with a blue hull.

I salvaged some blue RIO 12-ga hulls from a sporting clays range recently... they look like good hulls to a scrounger like me. --CC

If you brought this up about two weeks ago I could have sent you 1000 Rios.

The Rio Trap 28 is a 12 gauge shell. 28 refers to the load weight.

Peters use to make blue shells. In a winter doubles league about 20 years ago our team name was "Five Blue Peters".

Hit Gander Mtn, a few years ago they got remington to make up some 12 gauge "Blue Magic" shells just for gander Mtn. A guy gave me about 20 once fired hulls a few weeks ago.

Kent tungston matrix shells are blue. You probably don't want to pay $4.00/shell if you can find them. Pretty blue color though. GJ

Glowin, Gander does still sell the Peters Heavy Target Load, which is a very smooth STS like case with a brass colored base, very little writing on the hull. If you're only looking for that amount of hulls send me a PM with your address and I'll send you some. I have lots. JT


Gander Mtn; Peters Shotshells; Blue Hulls :wink:

My local Gander has Peters 12ga. in blue for $4.99 a box,in Ohio.I'm assuming you are shooting a 12----Lightfield slugs are also blue in 12.I don't shoot the real small stuff like 28ga. or .410 so I don't know about that.I shoot alot of 16ga. and see mostly green or purple.I'm sure someone here can get you what you need for the favors.By the way,this being a shotgun wedding and all----why didn't all of us SGW guys get an invitation????

I'm sure you have more then enough answers by now but I will go ahead and add that Wolf also uses blue colored shotgun shells.

I think he's referring to the shot charge which, in European shells, is measured in grams.
