Default Needed - 17hmr and 410 shells

Are these rounds still hard to find? My dad shoots these two guns now since he can't/shouldn't be shooting large caliber guns anymore. I need to find him a bunch of each.

If anyone has any and needs .22, .223 or 9mm I'd be willing to trade.

I just saw the 17's in Academy in Sugar Land about a month ago. I was trying to load up on them and 22 longs (for my dad) and with two box limit per day, I just took the 22's. Haven't been back again.

Yeah, they are not easy to find.

How old is your dad that he shouldn't shoot large calibers?

I may have some 410 slugs
Would those work for your Dad?

I see 17 her on the shelf every time I go in academy. Including today. Be forewarned though, the price per box has jumped way up.

He's 80. Had quadruple open bypass surgery a few years back and has never been the same. We're just glad he can still at least sit in ground blinds. And shoot squirrels off the porch.

I have enough to last him a few weeks...Just thought I'd start looking. He an always switch to my .22 I have like 10k rounds of that.

He doesn't use slugs but thanks.

How much is a box now at Academy?

I bought some 410 at Academy in South Austin a couple of weeks ago. They only had #4 and it was $13 +\- per box. They did have a good stock, 20-30 boxes available.

Thanks for the PMs guys. I'll stop in a few Wal-Marts and Academy. I didn't want to go looking if it just wasn't there.

Check Wal-Mart in Cedar Park they may have your 410.

Next time I'm at Academy Round Rock, I'll see if they have the 17
