CMP Ammunition Sales

One of the benefits of being a VSSA member is the ability to purchase surplus firearms, ammo and accessories from the Civilian Marksmenship Program (CMP).  From the CMP web site:
CMP has acquired a quantity of .410 gauge, 3 inch, #6 shot M35 military surplus shotgun shells. Our test showed that the ammunition patterned exceptionally well. Test were conducted at 20, 30, and 40 yards. We did find out that the M35 shells will not feed through a pump action shotgun. From our testing we will assume that the shells will not function in pump action, bolt action, or semi-auto shotguns. The shells are best used in single or double barrel applications or loaded directly into the chamber a single round at a time.
You can find prices and shipping information at the link above.  By law, the CMP can sell surplus military firearms, ammunition, parts and other items only to members of CMP affiliated clubs who are also U.S. citizens, over 18 years of age and who are legally eligible to purchase a firearm. You must provide a copy of your current VSSA membership card or other proof of membership. This requirement cannot be waived.
