Back in mid-summer during an internet search I came across a very random, and unknown-to-me box of S&B shotshells. It was a 12ga 10rd box, and the graphics were completely unfamiliar. The shells were slugs, and were listed as “tactical” in the description. That seller was out of stock, and I could find nothing on S&B’s website, U.S. or Czech. Recently I did another search, and these seem to be showing up more at places like Sportsman’s Gear, Cheaperthandirt, Rareammo, etc., however they are usually out of stock.
There are two variations, both slugs (1oz or 1&1/8oz) with no buckshot variety as of yet. The 1oz load is described as “low recoil”, and the 1&1/8oz is listed as “standard velocity”. They are both described as tactical shotshells, and the label makes mention of how they are 2.50" and should allow for +1 capacity in most tactical shotgun magazine tubes (tubes of at least 5rd capacity?). I can still find nothing on the S&B website, and it looks like the peak point of inventory for now has passed with most sellers being out of stock. I’m hoping they put out a 00-buck version to go along with the slugs for my modern short shotshell collection.
