Cheapest shotgun ammo?
I know shotgun ammo seems to be decent value anyway, but can anybody name some REALLY cheap shotgun ammo that I can get hold of here in the US (buckshot & slugs) for home defense and target/ clay. Im looking for the cheapest possible shells, no need for anything fancy. I find myself a poor man in this economy... (sympathy vote... hahaha!)

Thanks in advance!

The Wal-Mart by me has the 100 round value packs for just under $20. That's less than $5 per box. Not sure how much cheaper you'll be able to find it other than possibly at a gun show or from a reloader.

Ditto on Walmart for cheap target loads. Dicks Sporting Goods also has good pricing on birdshot this time of year. For 00 or 000 Buck try Cabelas or other bulk dealers for surplus military or LE.

HD ammo packaged as such is usually very expensive at $25 for 15 rounds, not a good deal in my opinion.

The cheapest buckshot I can find is Remington 2 3/4" 00. 15 round box for $10 at walmart. It's nothing special but I wouldn't hesitate to use it.

A large variety from $6 for a box of 25, up.

+2 on Walmart. I noticed the other day when I was in there they had boxes of Winchester, 100 shells, target loads for less than $20.
