    Default 12 Gauge - 3 Inch shell availability

    Anybody know where I could find 3 inch ammo?

    The availability seems rather low.

    I am also looking for those. I don't think any gunshop stock 3 inch ammo.

    What would the use be of such shells?

    I saw a pricelist from CHS guns in Somerset West this week & they listed Eley 3 inch Alphamax 46gr @ about R300 per box of 25 but that probably doesn't help you in Pretoria.

    OP, out of curiosity, for what purpose do you want/need the 3" shells?

    Ouch indeed. I predict will using this ammo will lead to many misses left and under, due to the severe flinch that has developed, which may very well lead to misses in general.

    Let's just say I have seen it happen, while I am happily plugging along next door, using my 32g #3's with a couple 36g #1's easily accessible in case I hear that uniquely pitched whistle of some Spurwing.

    Just to qualify, I used to arrange goose shoots at one time on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, as long as the birds were flying, during the hunting season.

    If you shoot out of range, no 3" 50g load will contribute more birds to the bag, you'll end just up pricking lots of birds.
