Pretty much any store that carries a good selection of shells should carry them. Usually "EXPRESS" or "HEAVY GAME" or "High speed" or the like. Typically #6 or larger shot.

Open a box and see.

BTW all buckshot and slugs are high brass, far as I know.

+1 on what 1k had to say, stay away from target, field, dove loads, they will all tend to be low brass and may not function in your Saiga in semi auto. You can try the cheaper stuff to see if it will function or just stay with the higher powered loads.

SGAmmo

In the past couple of years, I have bought pistol, rifle, and 12 gauge ammo from SGammo. I highly recommend them.

Take a look at their inexpensive 'Spartan' Italian made ammo that works in Saigas.

I have no personal experience with this particular brand, but I would imagine you will not be disappointed, especially with the price!

Walmart, Sportsman's Warehouse, Gander Mountain, Cabela's, Bass Pro Shop, just about anywhere that sells hunting ammo should have high brass 12 ga ammo for sale.

The problem is none of the "Hi brass" is actually brass anymore its all steel plated with something. DI4

That spartan ammo looks like low brass buckshot. Regardless of what the manufacturer says the velocity is, it appears to be low brass.

I would spend a little more and get some federal power shok 00 buck or slugs to break in your saiga. They are super reliable and have always cycled my S12.

Federal's gold medal shotgun shells are brass based.
I will have to check that out. I am looking for some good shells to reload some steel shot in. GI2

High "Base" shells refer to the inside of the shell, the bottom of the inside is higher so they use less powder for smokeless powder loads, older black powder loads need more room in the case for powder.
