This weekend is the novi show. Thanksgiving weekend is the birch run show and it is a 3 day show. There is a guy I see all the time who always has very hard to find stuff. I would definitely check there and ask anyone who is selling ammo.. Otherwise talk to a guy about quality custom loads. PM me if you ever contemplate getting rid of the firearm.

Dip the new shells in butter before you load.

After you shoot somebody you will be rewarded with the pleasant smell of toast.

Midway USA Inc. or Cabelas in Dundee, if Cabelas don't have them, they can order them. Call before making the trip. I have a Winchester 32-20 that I couldn't find shells for and Cabelas got some for me. I used a buffing wheel and buffed the sides of the shells near the butt and sprayed with a light coat of silicone. Then they worked fine. Also I have ordered these form MidwayUSA Inc. and had good luck with them.

I am guessing your gun is a Winchester? If so, you can contact Winchester and they refere you to a supplier. Have done that many times.
