Please report back on how they shoot, I have a couple of those and they are coming up in rotation to be shot. I have heard that they shoot good and shoot a little hot.

FYI: Check your lot numbers for recall. If yours are recalled, most report that they get them replaced pretty quickly.

I resemble that remark!

I only bought 1, so I am not a hoarder.

1 box of 1,000!!! Really, you are a HOARDER!

You are what is wrong with this country. What do you need with 1,000 rounds of ammo? Shame on you!

That's more than 2 times what I paid for my stash. I used to buy 500' rds every time it went on sale for $!8.00 a carton.

Please report back on that ammo after you use it. I took a brick out a couple weeks back and had numerous fail to fires. I read up on the ammo and several others had similar issues. Hopefully you won't experience this problem.

Lowest price I've seen in a while although I'm not familiar with those. Might have to drop by WM on my way to work tomorrow and see what's up. Haven't stopped in quite a while.

Oh yeah, HOARDER!!! I'd have bought 5.

I was up in Northern Virginia visiting my family a couple weeks ago, and Dicks had a bucket of 1400 Remington on sale for $70.00. One per so wife and I each got one. 2800 rounds make me a hoarder?

I completely gave up shooting anything but shot shells at skeet and clays because of this shortage crap. More fun to shoot at and hit moving targets anyway. So much so, that I now find it pretty boring to shoot at the range.

I did take a peek at 22lr the 1st time in ages, thinking it would have to be in stock by now but no dice. Nothing on the shelf but sure enough, there was a pallet full of 7.5's and 8's.

Shot my best 24/25 round of skeet, been hitting a consistent 23 but still chasing that perfect score.

Offshore - I just started shooting skeet this season. Sounds like you enjoy the game and have some impressive scores. Any hints/tips for someone just starting?
