I'm finding them about 65-70 a case and sometimes 52 to 60 on clearance at cabelas? 12 and 20 are running about the same.

Whatever gun you decide to go with make sure you invest in getting it fitted to you and having a good pad put on it. Also get plenty of practice in at the sporting clays range until you feel comfortable with it.
