Try your local trap/skeet club
12 or 20 run about .05/each
28 or 410 run more like .12/each

Cabela's sells used 12-ga AA hulls for $.05.

Here's a listing of shotgun clubs in your state:

See if one or two are close and go there asking or at least put up a want to buy notice on their bulletin board

Pap Charlie's is another good place, but he is a snowbird and won't be back in FL for a while yet IIRC, but an email should tell you:

Most ranges out here in Vegas let you just pick through all the used hulls at no cost to you.

All you have to do is ask, after I finish shooting I just walk up to all the stations and pick through the buckets and find some great stuff!

Of course, the other option is to buy yourself a few flats of whatever you want to reload and then shoot them first - you'll then have once-fired hulls for reloading!

Given the cost of reloading 12 or 20 ga. oneounce above has the right answer.

Just buy a flat of Remington Gun club, shoot em up and reload them up to 6-8 times per hull.

Like it sez on the shampoo bottle. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Probably about the same cost as buying empty hulls, as long as you take advantage of sale prices to buy the flat in the first place.

Formerly the best deal was the Sport packs at Wal-Mart. Those seem to have disappeared. The Remington Sport pack boxes of 100 were a great deal, and as long as you bought Remington you got the good Gun Club hulls.
