Anyone deal with targetsportsusa or UPS in relation to lost ammo?

Some Philadelphia hood rat UPS package sorters got 400 rounds of 6.5 cm 95 vmax. Lol

No, but target sports sucks at packing ammo. Received damaged ammo twice. I keep going back for more like a beat wife.
Curious, were you buying smaller lots and they put it all in one big box? I've had that happen. I had a box from somebody...them or Outdoor Limited that was 24" x 30" not even packed with paper or those cool corn-starch peanuts (dog liked those so I had to spray them to oblivion quickly). I couldn't freaking move the damn box. Had to open and unpack right in front of my house.

yep , lost about 500 rounds of duck ammo last season. File a lost report, call up the company that sold it to you. Let them know the UPS case number and ask them to resend the ammo or you will file a claim with your credit card company. When a company sends you stuff they must guarantee delivery, if they didnt get signature conf etc its their problem not yours.

Did you know if you file a claim against a merchant, if you win not only does the merchant must give you back the $$$, the bank imposes a charge as well agains the merchant for getting involved and wasting their time.

So its in the merchants best interest to take your claim number, get $$ of UPS and send you new shells before involving the bank else they risk your $$$, the lost merchandise + a nasty bank fee.

Will personally never do targetsportUSA again. Have had opened ammo, wrong/misrepresented ammo, and non functioning ammo all from them.

The Lapua I can understand may be customs.

They sent me another box of the same ammo to make up for the mid-labeled stuff.

I gave up on them after the “free” prime membership Norma ammo that worked ~20% of the time out of two different bolt guns.

I've always had good luck with them. I ordered a few cases of the 140 AG from them the other day and 2 showed up yesterday, the other 3 were delayed for some reason. They showed up today. Haven't opened them yet but I assume all is well judging from the looks of the package. Their prime pricing is hard to beat. Especially when it's basically 2 day delivery for me.

Yup, last week... Shit ton of pistol and a bunch of rifle ammo "lost" by UPS. TargetSports credited me back, but the stuff I ordered is impossible to find now.

Previous orders came in damaged boxes, but it was all there. I've started to use other sources now.

I almost wonder if the hood rat took the box home or somewhere to cut it open (it was the smallest of the shipment) then put it back when it wasn’t 9mm or 380.

Still wondering how the dvd got in there

I've bought 100's of thousands of rounds from them and never once had a problem.
In fact everything was double boxed

I've had consistently good results buying from Target Sports (with the realization that they're sometimes a bit slow) but the only thing I ever order from them are full cases of Federal .308 GMM, which Federal boxes up nice and tight to begin with.

Okay, now I got questions.

Is the movie any good?

WTF is a Nicetown library?

They just randomly mail shit like that?

They have ammunition in Philidelphia that's not black market?

Are you fucking with us?

Have not watched the movie yet. Look s ok

No idea. Bet it’s not nice lol

Pretty sure the package sorter monkeys put that in while it sat in Philly for a week. The ammo didn’t come from philly just went through there on it’s journey

No ammo in philly except for what they steal out of the mail

Def not ducking with y’all

Weighing in as another satisfied Targetsports customer. Not quite hundreds of thousands of rounds, but certainly the upper tens. Perhaps my good luck is that I've only bought whole cases, which are factory packed solidly. No chance to screw up repackaging. Used them for many years now.

I've had ammo go missing with UPS only to reappear the day I file a claim.

I've always had good luck with Target Sports. So is their "prime ammo" worth it?

I found it much more useful prior to the shit-show known as 2020...when I could find ammo, be happy with the price, and see it ship in a day or 2. I'm 0 for 3 most times now. Maybe again someday.

Will really depend on what you're specifically looking for. The less common stuff is obviously less an issue.

8 percent off everything plus perks like the getting told Ammo is in stock 3 hours in advance of the general public

I will say it again for myself... Target Sports has been an excellent source... delays in shipping are understandable given the political climate and the run on ammo... I do buy in bulk, and buy a considerable amount each time... never had a problem, never...
