Yep just ordered a bunch of .224 55 gr SPs & NBTs, .243 90 gr NBTs, .243 Win brass, and noticed that they have 257 Bee brass reduced way down...

I did notice that, while I ordered Tuesday they've yet to change the order status from "processing" to "shipped" or even "processed," but whatever.

As others pointed out, if you like the deals you can take the inconveniences. If you like paying full price plus a lot in shipping, MidwayUSA & Natchez are always there waiting for you...

lol, click on the product icon and you can choose your product amount. they most certainly do send a confirm email. my advice...never order from them.

@hogan... if you have ever seen dealer pricing from Brownells you will see just much they are screwing u, and you can rant about them.

Over the last few years, I've bought several thousand .30 cal 155 CC's and lots of their Partitions and Accubonds and have been very pleased. For a short time they jacked their prices way up but I guess the backlash was so severe they came back down to a reasonable level w/in a few days or so if I remember right.

As long as their prices are reasonable they'll get more of my money.

I think the new website addresses the "dumping" of previous accounts but if I got through the process before I can do it again.

If you don't buy 'em that means there are more for me.

Well, me, for one.

From the rest of your post, I'll assume that you're not going to buy from them any more? Good news for me; I have a better chance of picking up more of what I need. laugh

I will bitch one more time...

Ordered 6 packets of bullets, 50 to plastic envelope, right?

I requested SMALL flat rate box shipping. The bullets easily would've fit in the small $5 box. But they sent the pkg in Med Flat Rate at cost of $12 and Did Not Insure the pkg...

Cannot recall Any Vendor failing to insure, charge for insurance, on a purchase I made... But Nosler didn't insure. Nosler didn't give me the option to buy insurance. Nosler did buy Delivery Confirmation, but What The Heck! Is Everything FUBAR with them?

Most of you boys are just Nosler Love-Slaves; I know that... Bow down to the holy partition bullet and worship the accubond!

But the whole experience just shouts out how inept the company is and how little they care about their online customer and responding to buyers who've already Paid Money.

There are online sites that have lower prices than you can believe, but there is no human interaction or way to inquire/trace an order.

The whole Gun Business on the whole is a can of worms these days and all these schmucks will promise you anything to get your money but you are on your own after that.

I am sick and tired of the BS and even Fraud that goes on. This forum is one of the best, but many others are just a means to shill product and make sales for the vendors who pay to be on-site and donate product to the site.

Nosler has a class reputation and it is a shame the owners don't understand that failures like this are a Big Negative and Denigrate Reputation.

Pretty hard to prove "bullet failure"...
Very easy for Customer to feel abused and disregarded and decide he can do without the stuff

One more thing,

Years ago I bought some 250gr Partitions from a guy on this or the LRH forum. The guy shipped them Flat rate and they were put in the box with some packing worms, but not sealed very well.

The box got lost in transit, by the time it arrived, the guy had given me a refund via Paypal already. I paid about $90 for 150 bullets. The bullets rattled around and broke the boxes and made a hole in the box. I refused delivery and the guy got however many of his bullets back that survived the poor packing job, but...

Just saying, Nosler didn't pack their box much better, the poly bags were sealed rather than ziploc bagged, but packed securely in the small FR box, the bullets are better suited to delivery.

Nosler just does things its own way; and by damn, that is good enough for you if you want a deal on their bullets. It had better be good enough for you, cause that's as good as it's gonna get!

Don't order from them anymore - end of your problem, leaves more for me laugh

PS All of this extra stuff - multiple size boxes, tracking numbers, insurance, costs more. I would rather have cheaper bullets. We have become really spoiled by all the instant this and instant that now a days. In the old days we would send a money order and wait for weeks to see if the package would arrive. The insurance on 4 bags of bullets would probably increase the cost by 10 - 15% not worth it. If I was ordering 1000's of $ worth of bullets at a time I would probably want insurance but for a few bags, I would rather have the savings in bullets. The flat rate box is a relatively new thing and I really appreciate it. In the past I would have had to pay $15 - $20 for shipping on a typical order.

I have bought from the Pro shop numerous time, however I have never ordered from them. I grew up about 45min from their factory and my parents still live there. I would just stop in at the shop whenever I was in the area.

When I placed my order you could not specify the amount. I just checked the site after reading your post and found that it had changed and a new window opened up and you could specify the amount. Looks like they are still working on the site. Good thing.

Just got an order in today 6.5 X 140 Gr NBT. They now had flat rate shipping to AK $12 about time since it costs the same anywhere in the US. You could do it before but you had to specify it in special mailing instructions.

My only complaint is they need a more secure label on plastic bags. I hope the popularity fades and they can keep more in stock for Me, been buying seconds since about 1978 When I lived in Madras OR.
