From Woodpile- What’s going on with shotgun shells?

I’m topping off my stock of shotgun shells. What’s going on? Ordinary Winchester and Remington field loads—2 3/4 inchers in fives and sixes for 12 and 20 gauge—are being pushed off the shelves by what were specialty loads. With prices to match. Does everything have to be boutique? Does everything have to be Super Magnum Ultra? Today’s plain vanilla field loads are so good there’s no real need for anything else, not for actual hunters anyway. Yeah, for turkey I step it up to fours in 3-inchers, but that’s about it. Now I’m in a hurry to restock.

From Woodpile Report.
