I suspect they’re about as common and available as RST’s, Gamebores, etc these days.

I found a site, a reputable dealer, with a number of boxes for sale of Federal 12 ga 2 3/4"., 7 1/2 shot, 1 1/8 oz 1145 fps muzzle velocity shells which should work in my old SxS's. WARNING: The boxes looked like they came out of a garage 50 years ago and one of the 10 boxes had only 9 shells in it. The seller reimbursed the cost of the missing shells but now I'm wondering how old this lot is? I'm keeping them because they cannot be found anywhere else. Just beware these days, people are pulling out stocks they had stored in garages and basements for years.

Gene, if there is no corrosion around the primers that you can see, shoot them, and have fun. I shot a number of old roll crimped, purple 16 ga. paper shells with a Sears and Roebuck head stamp, while shooting clays with Nitrah Sunday afternoon, and they broke clays just fine. I don't hesitate to use them. There's just something that is just right about using vintage shells in vintage guns ............. and they kill doves and quail same as the new ones. Sometimes I have to cull paper shells because they have swollen too large to chamber. But again, if there is no corrosion evident around the primers I have found them to be mostly reliable, and lots of fun to use.

They smell good, too.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

Act Quickly, Gentlemen. You can order 7/8 oz 12 ga 2 1/2" flats for $150 from RST. Only size is 7.5 I am sure they won't last long! And a one flat limit apparently.

How many shells does anyone use at this shoot to be so worried about the availability of RST loads?

It’s been the last 2 years. I need some 2 1/2” 16’s 5 or 6’s. Lead or bismuth

Who knows the total, but the assemblage will shoot thousands of shells over the three day event. Prior to the current ammo shortages, RST would arrive with a large trailer packed with cases of shot shell ammo in all gauges; they usually left empty.

If it doesn't rain so we can shoot every day my wife and I will shoot 750 to 800 cartridges, of which I'll shoot about 200 2.5 inch. If you've never been to the Southern you should come for the experience.

And they didn’t just have target loads. I’d get several cases for the upcoming hunting season
