The 16 gauge ammo is no longer listed on their website and it may not get relisted if this April shipment is all spoken for. You snooze you lose! Smile

It's not on the site. They are soliciting emails to k.mccormick@aerostarglobal.com with the topic heading "Back order for 16 ga shells" to be put on the wait list. They are getting 2 5/8inch 29gram (1 1/16oz) 6-7-8 shot going 1310 fps. She said they would try to do it again in the fall, and include #5 then.

Phil, you're on top of things!

I got the same email from Kari confirming my order. I originally ordered 5's and 6's, but will have to wait for fall for the 5's (like Phil mentioned).

I didn't ask about the price, but they used to be about $9/box which is pretty darn good for a premium hunting load.

I wouldn't mind having a bunch of their hulls. My experience loading them in 12 ga. has been very positive. Thick and tough so far.

I just got off the phone with Kari McCormick at Aerostar, having ordered a couple flats of #6s. They cost $115 shipped and are available in 6, 7, and 8. She told me that she expects another order closer to fall that will include #5s. The boxes are marked 1 ounce, but the specs and shell cases say 29g--about a 2 percent difference.

In my communication with her she had indicated that the $115/case was for 200 rounds, not 250.

Takes the price per box up over $14 shipped. Not ludicrous by any means for premium ammo, but just wanted to share the info in case it was news to anyone else.

Thanks for pointing that out. I missed that but I seem to recall hearing these are shipped in flats of eight boxes rather than ten. So it does alter the economics a bit.

I read the writing on the wall years ago and ordered 10 cases when free shipping was offered. Great shells. I also squirreled away a few cases of 12 gauge High Pheasant, 2 1/2" shells. Prices are higher now. I don't think buying ammo for the future is a bad idea...prices don't seem to go down.

Thank you for the notice on availability

I picked up another four cases, though I note these appear to be a slightly higher velocity than the twelce cases I got last summer, which probably means they are slightly higher pressure..

I will find out later this summer when I finally get my strain gauge test set up going.

Very Happy
