Wonder if anyone has any information regarding 2 3/4 steel loads being available for this coming duck season? I am starting to get concerned. Best, Worth

Just last night I looked at the Roger's Sporting Goods site and saw that they have various steel shells in stock again. Not nearly as many as normal, but most gauges and loads were represented by at least one or two manufacturers. Unless you are adamant about getting one specific product, you should be able to find something suitable. Like you, I was beginning to get concerned.

Worth,

I have seen 2 3/4" steel game and target loads in #6 and smaller shot sizes on shelves. Usually around $6.60/box. However, I have not seen 2 3/4" duck loads. There seems to be 3" and 3.5" 12 ga steel shot available in stores and online.

Do you have the option of switching to a 3" chambered gun in 12 ga? I do not know if 2 3/4" bismuth loads are available? Good luck with your search.


Why get a low profile boat and put a high profile blind on it?

I have the same concern. I stocked up on #2 steel last year for duck loads, however, 3 inch BB for geese were non existent. I ended the season with 2 boxes of BB.

Found a great site to find ammo. The site is called Ammoseek.com. You type in the shell you are looking for and it brings up all the places that have it in stock. Haven?t used it to buy anything but it works well

Send me 40 cases please! Stores are empty here and when you do find some they are closer to $13/bx. I just bought 10 cases at $124/case.

Really had a tough time finding 2 3/4 steel last season. Finally found what I was looking for at Rogers and bought a caseload. Givetheir website a look.

Not affiliated with them but if you run a older 2 3/4 gun as I do on occasion I like these boss shells.
