Shot Order

Note: Brock has been regularly updating the status of this order over email; if you aren’t receiving his updates please subscribe to our email list at

Update as of 22 July:

We are at 200 Bags right now. If we can get to 240 I can get shipping down
from 4.53 / bag to 3.55 / bag. So talk to everyone you know. I am hoping to
submit the order here soon so we can have it ASAP.

I have talked to the guys in Utah about getting a shot order together. They are willing to come if we can get an order of 80 or more bags. The bags will be 45 per bag and 8.5 will be the lowest shot size available. Please let me know ASAP so we can get them on route as soon as possible so the price doesn’t rise to 50 per bag.
