Default American Reloading - disappointed

I ordered 500ea. 300 BO cases. They were advertised as NEW Gemtech cases.

Order came in yesterday and they are reprocessed cases with mixed headstamps of commercial, mil, .223 and 5.56.

Good price for what I ordered. Not very good price for what I got. ($90).

We'll see how their CS responds.

I don't even see any .300AAC unprimed cases available.

i just did a chargeback on them too. Ordered some lead shot on right before new years. It wasn't a great price, but not bad since they had an additional 15% off.

lead shot was not packaged properly. box was broke open and shot spilled everywhere on delivery. Everything was delivered in a USPS bin because the box split. I estimate that I lost 50% of the shot.

Called American Reloading, they said they would ship a replacement the next day. That was a nearly two months ago. since then they ignore my emails and calls. Did a CC chargeback just this week....

That sucks.. I had a screaming deal on their mixed 40 cal 155/165/180 FMJ's.. I ordered what I thought was 10,000 pieces (20 boxes) at $50/1000.. I then actually sorted and counted all of it (yes, it took a while) and found that I came up about 400 short.. they shipped me another box to bring me over the threshold of 10k with nothing more than an email.

I've ordered from them many times. Sometimes the packaging isn't the best but, I've been happy with every product I've bought from them. I just ordered 6K worth of various frangibles today.

After 2 messages and a threat to dispute with my credit card company, I finally got a reply. They claim they got a barrel in which the top half was correct and the bottom half was mixed. They didn't say when they noticed this, but appears they kept filling orders. Offered an RMA or exchange for FC primed brass, but didn't list an exchange rate. If 500 for 500 I'm in. Even 400.

FWIW, the e-mail I received indicated MO schools aren't any better than CA's.

We'll see. They ain't off the hook yet. I haven't had a response to the "exchange rate" question posited Thursday a.m.

Well, as in Beetle's case they "went dark" with no further replies to e-mail or v-mail. Opened dispute today.

Call from a different phone!!
Maybe they put you on the ignore list. Call from a friendís phone or from work or something. When they answer ... youíll know you were being specifically ignored.

Bummer to hear these guys have ***** the bed. Unfortunately I'm not surprised. Couple years back I ordered quite a few different flavors of pistol rounds. They were pulled, which was as advertised. But after receiving a bunch that were marred, overcrimped, gouged, or just generally not reloadable I stopped ordering from them.

Follow-up:

Credit became permanent today. Apparently they never responded to the dispute I initiated with my CC company.

I don't know how they stay afloat.
