    Good morning everyone!

    Recently moved from southern Ohio up to the Ann Arbor Michigan area, and can’t seem to find any local shops within reasonable driving distance that carry shotshell loading components.
    Are there any online shops that are offering shot for less than $75/25lb? I’ve found rotometals to be one of the cheapest so far, but haven’t searched exhaustively. Any help is appreciated.

    Most shotgun clubs carry shot for their members and sometimes guests. Check for area skeet and trap clubs, sporting clays also.

    depending on where you are at in A2...this is a drive but usually worth it.

    Check with local clubs about bulk buys and reclaimed shot orders.

    Speaking of which...

    Just bought a bag of magnum #8.5 shot today $49 + tax. Haven't been shooting much since prices of everything have gone up, only shot a few rounds of skeet last year, but I have enough supplies stored to reload about 7000 shotshells. That's about what I would shoot in a 3 month period about 25 years ago.

    Guns Galore is Not too far from You. They Normally carry Shot. Maybe give them a call. What are you looking for Been a while since I have been There but I recall they had some target sized lead for about 50 bucks for 25 pounds. I could be wrong on that. They usually have powder and primers as well. Might want to call ahead. I have even had them hold components for me till I could get there. It's a bit of a drive for me but usually worth the trip. Good folks.

    https://recobstargetshop.com/product-category/reloading-supplies/shot/ Here you go. They ship by flat rate, so add $15 per 2 bags. They also have a good selection of wads and powder is in stock off and on. I believe MI is in Spee Dee delivery footprint, so if you find a powder you like or God willing primers, the Hazmat will be significantly lower than labeled.

    They are a good shop with good service and reasonably fast shipping. You can talk to a real American speaking nice lady if you have questions.
