Cheap ammo- 12 GA Brenneke smooth barrel

I was wondering where you folks buy cheap brenneke or the like ammunition. I used to buy it from http://www.abcoutdoors.com/, but I haven't been able to load the page for the last 2 months. A box of Brenneke USA K.O. Ammunition 12 Gauge 2-3/4" 1 oz Foster-type Slug Box of 5 was between $2.30 to $2.19.

I have a mossberg 590 with a smooth barrel(no twist). Purpose of the ammo is for target shooting. Can anyone recommend another online retailer that has cheap/large quantity ammunition?

S&B

It seems you're looking for slugs, but I can't quite tell from your post.

If that's correct, then you may want to try Sellier & Bellot, but remember that S&B 2 3/4" is made long, so it runs to almost 3". If your SG is made to handle 3" shells, and you're aware of the length, you'll be fine.

Sorry, for target shooting, yes slugs. They don't allow buckshot on a range for obvious reasons. Slugs it is.

Thanks Rem. I'll take a drive to Dick's and see what they've got... Welp. Not in stock. They only carry the black magic/sabot's at 8 dollars per. Guess I'll keepa lookin. Seems to be sold out online as well. Hmm.. Odd.
