    Default Herters 16 ga. Shells at Cabelas

    If you are on Cabelas web site and click on Shooting, then Ammunition, then select 16 gauge it will only pull up one box of shells, Federal Steel. So it would appear that the Herters 16 ga. shell are not available. But if you go to their search box at the top of the home page and type in "Herters 16" it will pull them up. Just a FYI.

    That is exactly what I do. Good shells for the price. Especially when on sale and or free shipping.

    Do a search for Herters on this site and you should come up with some threads regarding the Herters shells and performance. I've only used the dove and quail loads. Overall, what I remember about reviews on them is that they are a decent shell. I think a few had issues in them functioning well in auto loaders. The price is right, buy a box and give 'em a try.

    I’ve shot probably 6-7 cases in 16 and 12 gauge both for sporting clays and dove. No complaints whatsoever. I just ordered 2 more flats of 16 gauge, on sale. $62.99 a case, $6.29 a box.

    And better yet; they are PURPLE.

    Had no idea they had them in 16ga and I got a Cabelas one mile from my house near Sun Prairie. Glad you posted that. I’ll run over tomorrow and pick up a case, and a case of 20ga.

    Dad buys them by the case to get hulls for our loading. They're a cheddite hull from Italy. Reload decent enough, not STS or AA quality, but not too many options in a 16.

    They had a Herters pheasant load too in 6s at Cabelas in 16 ga. I just ordered the Federal pf1635 from Reeds so I passed on that and ordered a case of the Herters 16 ga. dove load for trap. I like the Federal load in 5s. They recoil some but has been a good load for me.
