    I don't have any turbos but I do have a few other styles that I would be willing to part with if you still need shells. I'll measure them when I get home. Just let me know.

    Did you check Mac's Store?
    Mac's Shell Shack - Home Page

    Im selling some really big shells for a friend, 6 shells for $5.

    It's hard to find really big shells with the opening sizes you need for free. They tend to get kinda pricey in stores.

    Hi all again,

    Thanks Vicki. :) Yes, you can all check out the site ( Mac's Shell Shack - Home Page ) There is more information on the site, and you can really save some money as I have the shells priced lower then everyone else as I don't like it if members have to pay a lot of money for shells. I'll be getting more in this week. :)

    Mac
