Looked at shells at Wal-Mart today. The value pack Winchesters that were selling for $16 something are now $23.88. Earlier this year they were $14 something. I knew the prices would be going up, but I didn't expect that much of a jump. I suppose Feds and Remingtons will be jumping that much as well. This really puts the hurt on. Has anyone else seen this yet?

I don't buy those "value-packs" 'cause they are rarely a value.
I just purchased some Remington Shur-Shots today for $4.29 per box and if I would have bothered to look I probably could have found some for closer to $3.99.

The Federal value pack at WalMart is still $16 last I saw. $4 a box for reliable loads - not bad.

Lead was nearly $2.00/lb there a while back. It has fallen to around $1.17/lb, this will help. Many primers are going to the war...

I am hoping the price of shells will come back down as soon as the big manufactures have used up the lead they had to pay dearly for.

I went by my "favorite" store (wallyworld) yesterday. They were in the process of marking up ALL ammo.

Number 9 Winchester AA 28 HS's went from $8.97 a box to $9.88 a box, plus tax. The girl behind the counter said they weren't through either. The first of the the year they would be marked them up again. :cry:

Best price at Wal-mart all summer was Federal 1oz game loads for $3.88 a box. Shot them in a pinch and worked well for me.
