    I bet that they would make an exception in your case!:LOL::LOL: Or they might try to make you pay the difference and/or call the law.:(:mad:

    Oh F'kin' well! Looks like it's yours now.

    Back in the early 90's I used to reload 5.56 with soft point 55 gr for .08 / round with the cheapest components I could find at the time. It was great ammo for ground squirrels and jack rabbits.

    At .08 / round for factory, you've done well.

    I am done messing with it. 3 attempts to correct it starting with the Floor Manager. Then the Store Manager and then calling the 800 number after you suggested there might be two bar codes on the boxes...... and there were. I think we can say I have done more than due diligence at this point. Just out of curiosity I drove over to the Benton store and bought another case of it at their gun barn and they rang it up the same way, scanning the top bar code instead of the side bar code. I asked him (Cashier) what would happen if he scanned the side bar code instead and it rang up $279.92 instead of the $69.98 and I paid the $279.92 and called that my good deed for the Month. I am guessing that since that store had less than half a pallet of it left, that they have sold a lot of $69.98 cases as well.

    Are you telling me that you had the nerve to march into the house with a ANOTHER case of ammo and you expect us to believe the wife said nothing?!?!?

    Well, all I can say is I wish we had a Rural King around here because I would be knocking on their door before they even opened.

    Unless the Wife was keeping a close count 32 cases looks pretty much like 31 cases...either way she is still gonna be pissed, but she will get over it...someday. The important thing to remember is that you have 25,600 rds. of .223 ammo, and it only cost you 8 cents/rd..

    ^^^^^^ What’s with this BS? You pay $19.09US for one fork, but you can buy three for $15.72US. ^^^^^^

    I *think* there are some misprints on his site. All I've ever bought was his ammo cans. I usually get them shipped to my door for around $10.50 per can. I buy them by the dozen.

    Yup...due diligence is key to getting good pricing.

    .32 swl is typically more expensive than .45acp, but every now any then deals do come up...

    At last count there were about twenty grown hogs. That's not counting the young. What would be a good price skinned?
