With all due respect/no offense intended, Have you ever ordered from them before? There’s a phrase that comes to mind with online operations that have scant information about who is running it or where they’re located. “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” (An Essay On Criticism by Alexander Pope, 1963.)

+1,



The OP can obviously still afford to shoot since it costs him essentially nothing.

I to have been stacking over the years for reloading. I also been "buying" my reloads off myself.
So when the prices and quantities are back to where I feel its good I have a little chunk of change to restock.
Till then I have shifted to 22lr, pellet guns, reduced loads for 100 yards , cast bullets and such.

Back when you could get 5.56mm for 20-25 cents per round it was the same price as a single arcade game play, but the "play" only lasts for 1/720th of a second!!

As soon as my doctors get my spine back in order, I am going back to reloading with two exceptions. I am under my families orders to not cast anymore, just buy the projectiles. I Checked the prices, and the difference is not that great then when I casted. I am giving my son my 550B of 30+ years and order a 750 as I will be sitting down to do my reloading.

https://www.whois.com/whois/ammoshoponline.com

BBB has over 100 reviews over the past 3+ years.
i tend to ignore the 5 stars and go straight to the 1 stars to see what their problems are. the vast majority of the 1 star reviews are fedex related. one guy who lives in tampa gave it a one star because he wants to pick up his ammo in person and complained about packaging and having to wait for shipment, bla bla. there are other packaging complains and a few about canceled orders. the complaint page shows refunds and cases resolved. pretty much every business that uses fedex has complaints about fedex.
https://www.bbb.org/us/fl/tampa/prof...stomer-reviews

the reddit forum has complaints and compliments, same types of issues about fedex and packaging and slow customer response times during 2020.

i bet if you look up your favorite ammo seller you'll see the same types of complaints.

all the major gun and ammo makers are hiring. everyone here complaining about not enough guns and ammo being available need to get their kids, nieces, nephews, etc, off the couch, drive them over to these companies, and fill out applications. that is the only way you are going to get more guns and ammo in the stores. lots of other sectors can't find anyone to work, also.

“ i bet if you look up your favorite ammo seller you'll see the same types of complaints.” how much would you like to wager on that ? Want to make it interesting???

Ever seen Trading Places where the brothers Duke wager over $1?

The ammo market definitely has a lot of interesting parallels to the orange juice trade.
