    I have way more powder than bullets and like to balance things out if possible, so I couldn’t resist.

    I keep about a dozen around so I don’t have to wait on them. Now that just means I need to restock 3-4. :p

    I was grilling some chicken for supper. Then sat down with @Bows & Bullets and spent some time with her. She has to work tomorrow morning and gets up around 4:30 so I waited till she went to sleep before getting on the forum. I wish you, your family, and everyone a prosperous and Happy New Year!

    Mine finally showed up today. If I click the link in the OP, it says the item is gone.

    Anyone remember if it said these were pulled projectiles?

    I’m 90% sure they were listed as new. I am recalling this because the 2nd link I posted for Joe said new in the title but pulls in the description and I compared the two listings to see what was different.

    I bought two boxes of 500. They came loose in a single box with no label. And a majority of them look like they’ve been loaded...or at least that’s what I assume the markings are?

    I had an interesting experience with these guys. I placed an order and maybe a few days later, I got a notification that a label had been created. A week or so later I check and no updates, still just label created. I was surprisingly patient and after about a month gave them a call. The guy that answered was very apologetic and told me how my order fell through the cracks. He told me they didn't have that product but would have it the next week so I could get a refund or wait the week and he'd throw me an extra 10% or so. I wasn't in a hurry so I told him I'd wait.

    After a couple more weeks I emailed them and got a bizarre email. Apparently, my story was the same one that dozens of customers were hearing. Labels created, product leaving the warehouse but never making it customers. That apologetic man doesn't work there anymore. I was actually surprised they told me all of this. In their defense, I was told my money was going to be refunded and it was refunded promptly. The whole thing was just very strange.

    Edit: note that this was months ago.

    I clicked the link in the original post sometime after they were sold out and in the description it did state they were pulled. I can’t recall if the title said new or not and who knows if at some point they updated the description between you ordering and me checking since they were sold out by the time I checked.

    Thanks. Reference number 5026 is what I have on an invoice, and it can’t be found. 5025 is clearly labeled as new.

    FWIW...sent them an email last night and just got this reply:

    Greg,

    In the short description it said PULLED which is what 99% of our products are. There is also more info in the long description. However, we always want our customers to be happy so if you would like to return them for a full refund we can do that. We try to offer prices that reflect PULLED products. Let me know what we can do and we will make it happen for you! I just turned the product back on for you to see.


    So evidently I missed it...

    Figure I’ll just keep them for now.

    I replied to say I’d keep it, and got another response which makes me feel a little better about thinking I’d ordered new projectiles. :D

    Greg,

    I see what you're saying "Condition - New Product" but right below that it says Pulled. This is why we are building an entirely new site so we can fix that issue along with others that the original owner had set up. Sorry for the confusion here and please let us know if you have any issues.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I’ll get you out of them if you want, just pick a fru-fru coffee shop or LGS to meet.

    @BigWaylon that makes sense. I knew when I looked at the two link in this thread that one said “new” but description said “pulls”, but I was apparently mixed up.

    I too wouldn’t mind taking them off your hands if you’d prefer to order something else. I may even have some other 147 FMJs to trade.

    This is why I’m jealous of your bottles. I need a system.
