 Post subject: Where to buy 12 gauge 2 1/2 inch shells or other light field

I am looking to pic up a box or two (not a whole case) of light field loads (Sellier & Ballet 2 1/2 inch #6s for example). Ideally, any 12 gauge with under 3 dram and 1 oz. of shot.

I am looking for a light hunting load to use is my L.C. Smith feather weight 12 gauge. Great gun but a bit to much recoil with the standard field loads.

My other option would be to buy some gauge-mates and shoot 20 gauge loads.

I would be very appreciative of any suggestions. I am having a hard time finding anything out of the ordinary in the local gun shops in my area. Great forum!

You could hunt with light target loads, but you won't find shot bigger than 7.5s. I have used Winchester's AA Featherlights a lot for target shooting and I get good performance from them with very little recoil.

Is your gun chambered 2 1/2 or 2 3/4? If it is 2 1/2 ignore my first post.
