Why is it that nobody sell 20 ga buck in anything but 5 rd boxes. I see 12 ga all over the place.

also with law enforcement. That's why 25 rds boxes are more common but I have three boxes of 16ga buck and slugs from the 60/70's.

Yeah, I wonder about that too especially since 20's are becoming more popular, especially among us older types and a lot of younger or smaller people like women and children.

A price break would result in more 20's being bought by some like me who haven't gotten into shotshell reloading.

I own a 20 gauge(full choke) and bought a heck of alot of federal 2 3/4 #3 buck so I have enough to get me through the years, afraid all 20 gauge buckshot would slowly vanish. I really got lucky my gun patterned it better than the federal 3 in. #2 buck. I would have been stuck with these and having to purchase the #2 buck after the fact. My father's new 20 gauge 870 patterns the #2 buck the best(modified choke). Just sharing my experence.
