About a month or two ago, I went to buy a box (100) of shotgun shells. They Jumped from $16 to $21. A buddy and I are now starting to look at reloading for shotgun. The only problem is with the price of shot, we can't beat the price.in .45 is selling for $14.57 a box. That is outrageous, considering I was buying it for $10.97 a box no more than a few months ago.
