This isn’t something I ever bought much of, ever. I ran across some in 2 local stores and really do not see myself buying any now. $2 or more per shell.

IIRC, around 75¢/round

2.75" 00 was easily found for under $5 per 5-round box.

I still find it for that on occasion.

I picked up some 3" Federal Classic 00 for $8.54 per 5-round box last month.

The only way I would pay that price is if I really, really needed it, and it was Federal FliteControl.

Academy is selling Winchester & Remington 2 3/4" 12ga 00 Buckshot for $6.99 per 5rd box, so I wouldn't expect to find it for any less than that.

I concur that two years ago, going rate was 75c-$1 per shell.

That depends on your location. All the Academy up here in McKinney has had for a while is steel shot (unless you are waiting in line early on the morning ammo is delivered).

If anyone in the western Pa area needs some I would be more than happy to let a bunch go for 1.00 per round

I remember when I got some nice 12ga home defense 00 shells, saying to myself, "Hey, that buck shot is a buck a shot!"

This was more than two years ago, and in a time of market normalcy.

My BIL just bought 200 rounds from me gladly for a $1 a round.

My first thought was "stuck it to him good", then "you did him a favor even selling it". Since no one has it for sale, lets go with the second one.

Not from two years ago, but I just found a box of 25 shells of Remington Law Enforcement low recoil 00 buck I bought for $13.95 some years ago.

for years Walmart sold 15 round Winchester 'value packs' for ~$12.

that was my price frame of reference for name brand quality 12 ga 00 buckshot ammunition

I wish I could remember what I paid for mine, but it was at least ten years ago. Vances Shooters Supply had Federal Flitecontrol on sale, so I ordered a bunch and said I would pick it up in the store in Columbus, OH on my way from FL to MI. When I got to the store, the guy I talked said, “So you are the guy that ordered all that” and I said “Yep”. They needed two hand trucks to bring it all out. It was a really good deal though.
