That is almost double what they were before this fiasco. Guess I'll find other alternatives to Remington ammo.

Meh, they are just advertising MSRP. Let's see what the real market price is once all the nonsense is over and supply recovers. It's not like you can hit "Buy it Now" and actually purchase it from them.

This is all meaningless. Everyone needs to calm down.

I just bought a decently equipped 4wd pickup truck for $32k, new. I don't even remember what the sticker price was because it was irrelevant, but it was probably $10-15k higher than what I paid.

I've seen this type of post across multiple BBS. Apparently nobody has ever heard of MSRP before...

Don't hold your breath waiting for $5 Gun Clubs, it might be a while. I bought many a flat from Gander Outdoors for $50/flat freight included. I will check back next year.

I also purchased many flats of gun clubs for $5 per box about a decade ago. However, many years ago their popularity as a budget shell drove up the price. Pre-pandemic the the dealer wholesale cost at Grafs was over $6 per box. They might have occasionally gone on sale, but $5 per box has not been a standard retail price for many years. It's also very likely when they were selling $5 per box, Remington's website showed an MSRP that was close to $10 per box. MSRP is a completely meaningless number.

I bought $50/flat Gun Clubs just two years ago from Gander Outdoors. To get that price you also had to be a member of the Good Sam Club. Its a RV thing, roadside service ect. Those were the days :lol:

I definitely save on my 12 gauge 7/8 ounce Skeet loads. Less shot used means a lower cost per shell. Found that they'll also work for Trap but you do have to be shooting well because getting "close" with a fringe shot means a miss.
