Deals on 12ga. Ammo?

Hey guys,
Looking to stock up on food for the 870. A bulk order of 00B most likely - maybe some Rem 1B too, which is backorder-able from Cabela's. Just wondering if you know of any good deals. Thinking of spending no more than $100 (yeah, not a large bulk order).

I did find one site selling 25 rounds of Rio Royal Low Recoil 00 Buck for $16 - great price, but the reviews for that stuff are all over the place. Some great, some terrible. Might just be sticking with Remington this time. Any leads on good prices would be helpful.

As of this moment in time, IF you can find anything, you had better grab it

You are correct, $100 is not a large or bulk order

I bought some full power Rio Royal 9 pellet 00 for $3.99 for 5 rounds at Cabela's. The reviews on the Cabela's website are mostly positive. The box says 2 3/4"' but they are a bit longer. I can normally load 5 rounds in the magazine with 2 3/4" shells but I can only load 4 of the Rio rounds.

The indoor gun range I got only allows 00 buckshot or rifled slugs to be fired there. At least I was able find some 00 buck so I can go to gun range once in a while.

All the Rio I have shot was very dirty, but otherwise functioned well.
Mostly sporting loads for clay, but some buck. Between 100 and 125 rounds I would usually start to see malfunctions without some maintenance.
