If you were having trouble finding ammo to shoot this year, it may get even tuffer.

Nearly 8 million rounds of ammo have been stolen. The shipment heading for the US is now in the hands of the Mexican cartels. The ammunition, which is manufactured in the Mexican city of Cuernavaca, is sold in the U.S. under the brand name Aquila.

Stuff can be found. We were looking for non tox / Bismuth for our 410s and 28 gages with little luck, but then hooked up with BOSS Shotshells and found what we needed.

At 35-40$ a box for steel I might not be hunting as many days in 2021. Hot damn. I like the 3 2 shot and I think I was paying 17$ a box last season.

I have been trying to find a particular shotgun that I want...it's a Mossberg .410 Bore Model 50109 (or the 50108)...no luck for months. Found out from a local shop that if I ordered it today thru them, Mossberg told them it will be a minimum of 90 days, but will likely be twice that, and the one I really want, the 50109, won't be available, maybe at all.

May need to reassess which new turkey gun to buy. Really liked the long barrel on the 50109 (26"), full camo synthetic stock, and a pump action that shoots 3" shells. I have young lady friend who has never hunted before, feels like a kinder intro than one of my 12 gauges.

Fish on...

Todd

Appreciate the offers! I'll let you know if I need to go that direction...thank you!

I'm being pretty particular at this point, so really want a pump action, camo stock, with full or interchangeable with full choke...I've got plenty of "not exactly what I want for her to shoot" on hand, and she's not scared of shooting a 12 gauge...but I really would like at .410 turkey gun of my own, too, so looking to kill two birds with one stone here, if possible.

Fish on...

looks like this place has one Todd, i added it to the cart and with tax came up to 657 without shipping...

dont know if you want to pay that much for a 500, but if you want the gun, there should be one available...

https://ammoandarmsstore.com/75795/

i would also call them before you order to make sure they actually have it, and its not a backorder thing that you wait 8 months for...

All good, and thanks...I thought about that one, after striking out on all of the 500s, but it's a little pricey for what you get, to my mind...just not an autoloader fan.

i keep seeing 16 gauge around, not a lot of people shoot it... have yet to come across a shotgun of one...

some dickhead was using steel shot on the skeet range last weekend, we were on the 1st station and i was standing back and to the right..

well one of the BB's hit the pole and flew back and smacked me right in the chest, felt like someone stuck me with a nail, hurt like hell...

Went to Sportco on Sunday to pick up a few bags of hooks for an upcoming tuna trip out of San Diego, and a gun caught my eye...went back and got it today.

Remington 870 .410 TSS Turkey Gun in full Mossyoak camo.

Was about twice the cost of the Mossberg I wanted to find, but after finding out that Mossberg was at least 90 days, and probably 180 days out even with connections, I pulled the trigger on the 870.

It's a lovely little gun, and my young lady friend will easily handle it as a first time hunter, compared to the old mule 12 gauges I hunt with.

Ammo is still preposterously hard to find, have to get it online.

Fish on...

Todd

The stuff I want is #9 3" TSS, if you see any on a shelf let me know, it usually runs anywhere from $30 to $50 for a box of 5 shells!

Bought two 5ct. boxes of 3" #9 TSS online...$90 for 10 shells total, with tax and shipping.

Bought another three boxes of 3" #7 lead, 30 shells total, $75.

Still hoping to find a local source, but Cabela's, Sportco, OE, and the SW in Fed Way are all "zero inventory" on any .410 at all.

The lead is for a little practice and checking out the gun, one of the TSS is to pattern it, and the other 9 are for killing stuff.

Fish on...

I just got another case of Non Tox, 410 , 3 in, #5, and #7 shot from BOSS. $30 per box of 20 shells. Upland hunting loads, not specific to Turkey. Although, the #5s with a full choke at 30 yards may do the trick...
