Can someone tell me why

Postby Marauder 1 » Fri Jun 03, 2016 10:52 pm

.410 ammo is through the roof? I bought both my boys really nice .410's to train them on. Ammo was cheap then but now yikes! It's like buying pistol ammo.

Do any of you guys have a good source for .410?

Thanks
Mark

I don't have a good source, Mark, but I suspect it might have to do with the Taurus, S&W, etc revolvers out there and all the new tactical stuff along with them. Just my .02 but my son is getting ready to pick up a side by side .410 and I was hoping the ammo price spikes were over!

What brand Barry? I used to have a 410 side by side my uncle used to let me shoot I loved that shotgun. I'm thinking of getting a reloading system just for 410 to start. It would be so much cheaper that 10 bucks a box that's for sure.

Barry is spot-on about the Taurus - S&W handguns pushing up the price on the .410 ammo . Lots of people are buying them for self-defense / home defense weapons and loading them up with low velocity 230gr 45's and .410's... Same thing happened to Glock magazines when Kel-Tec and somebody else re-configured their mag-well to take a Glock mag . They went from $13-15 apiece to $20.00 plus and higher , over-night .
