I’ve been away from things for a number of years. The last time I bought shells from them, they came in plain white boxes with black printing. This was somewhere around the mid-90s. Supplies are obviously scarce on all things shooting. I found a small rural hardware store that had about a case of assorted 12ga 2 1/2” I purchased what they had. Looking on the RST website, I see they are not taking back orders. Their FB page is pretty sparse as well.

Does anyone know if they are still planning on resuming production at some point or is this yet another casualty of the past 2 years?

I got a call from them a couple of weeks ago. Hopeful for some 12’s. 16’s not so much

That’s a bit encouraging at least. For the amount I plan on shooting my 16, I should be fine for the time being. I was beyond lucky to stumble upon the 12s. Nice little local hardware store. Owner said he bought out the supply of another store that was going out of business. Lots of oddball stuff...25-20, metric calibers, etc. I don’t think they really knew what they had. I’m sure he looked at them, said “these are odd too”, stuck another buck onto the price and rolled with it. I can’t even get a box of Rio trap loads at Sheels for what these cost me. I justified with the wife by saying “We’d have a better chance of Bigfoot stopping by for a beer tonight.”

They were at the NE SXS. Limited amount of shells and as such they were only selling 3 boxes at a time. They had zero 10 gauge and a fair bit of 12 gauge. 16 gauge was in really short supply. FWIW, they were charging $20 per box which is highest they had ever charged. Reason pretty simple. Every component costs much more then it used to. FWIW, the only 16 gauge they had were the 7/8 oz loads. They use the same powder for the 16 gauge as they do for the 12 gauge and since most folks need 12 gauge that is their main focus.

My LGS in Atlanta has at least a few boxes of 16 gauge RSTs, at least when I was there a week or two ago. Chuck's Firearms. I have no use for them or I would have bought them.

Sure glad I’ve got thousands of hulls, wads, and primers! Don’t shoot a lot so should last well beyond my time. And a fair number of flats of RST in 16 and 20. Y’all don’t despair, the supply situation will sort itself out—it’s called capitalism.

It’s called voted out of office not capitalism. Step one this year, then total voter retirement in 2024. It will take a couple years to get things more normal after that I’m sure.

They had 20 gauge available several months ago and I bought a flat. They were limiting sales to one flat per customer.

RST has the same problem all shotshell reloaders across the country has. They use the same off the shelf materials we do. Of course they have some connections most of don't , but if it ain't there it ain't there. Until Downrange can get raw materials to make the beloved DR-16 wads all of us 16 ga shooters are up a crick for good light loads. Morris does this because he likes old guns and the folks that shoot them. They will provide what they can with the components they can get.

Morris had plenty of ammunition at the Northeast Shoot at Ernie's. End of story. He couldn't promise ammo for phone orders after the shoot. What a great guy.
