    Not too happy with Brownells. I paid for shipping protection (an extra $3) yet they shipped 4 bricks of Center-X (not cheap!) in the bottom of a thin cardboard box, with some paper thrown in on top for good measure. You can see the brick in the bottom of the box:

    I would have passed as well......I have some.thoughts about TS USA.....but I will keep them to myself, let's say I wont be worried about what they have in stock......ever.
    I will say that my opinion of them has changed a lot since covid. I used to buy from them quite often. But haven’t seen a price I’m willing to pay since things went crazy.

    Agreed, same here. Have bought lots of ammo from them before covid. That's over... never again

    I got an email this morning for CenterX for 12.95. Now shows out of stock but... I may have missed the Out of Stock disclaimer this morning when I first got the email..... Not sure.

    No, there were probably 1000 emails that went out and the first 20 responses probably bought out all of the ammo that was available. It's difficult to rely on emails because they send out so many in respect to the amount of product really available.

    Better luck next time.

    Not that this is exactly on topic; but a while back I got some Aguila stuff, the 250 backs (2000 rounds). Took it out with a new shooter this past weekend and was shocked how many duds there were. Probably 20%. Not light strikes either as they had big deep dents.

    Fast forward and I got 3 boxes of 525 Winchester this week Again for plinking/22LR pistol training. Also, many misfires. So took it to another platform. Same thing. Both of these I bought AFTER the COVID rush began and I suspect they were made during COVID "recovery" - especially the Winchester.

    Granted, these are low grade stuff; but Aguila has been rock solid for me (save the kaboom that took out my PPQ 22 barrel).

    Anybody else got recent "cheap" manufactured ammo and having issues?

    Did they raise prices on sv? I thought it was 3.99 before
    It was $3.99 as of a few weeks ago (5/12) when I placed my last order. Looks like they also raised the price of the Blazer up to $4.99. Not a big surprise...Vista Outdoors told everyone they were going to raise prices.

    It seems the price increase slowed sales down a bit. CCI still has SV, Quiet, and Maxi-Mag in stock.

    I ordered on Wednesday from CCI and my CC has been charged as of yesterday. Maybe they're shipping faster than their 2-3 weeks as advertized.

    I have placed five orders now with CCI. They have all shipped within 5-15 days of being ordered. The only one that shipped early was when I only ordered SV, and paid the $12 shipping. All four orders over $100 with free shipping were 12-15 days to ship. This is just my experience. Your mileage may vary.

    Sure seems odd that they would charge my credit card that far in advance of shipping my order.
    Not really that strange, it’s not backordered stock. Most vendors I’ve seen charge when you place the order if it’s in stock, even if shipping takes awhile. Amazon charges even if it isn’t in stock 🙄

    Champions Choice sometimes has call-only stock, this thread has been the best tracker for that for me. Suppose you could also just call them every AM too?

    Having been successful at getting ammo from CC earlier in the year, for the past month or more I've seen nothing posted. I called one morning because of the posts on this forum and the lady said they (CC) will always post in-stock numbers but you must call to purchase. Is this true? I'm always hitting the site multiple times a day and haven't seen any in-stock in a while.
    Are you guys seeing in-stock numbers THEN calling or are you just calling blind hoping to get lucky?
