I USED to purchase my bullets from Midway, right up until this last order I placed on the 28th of November. The inital charge when I checked out was $12 for a medium flat rate box....then they just decided to change shipping to sure post before they shipped it out without contacting me so it is now $35 shipping for 2 boxes of bullets, best part is the bullets still aren't here whereas if they would have stuck with flat rate it would have been here within 3-5 days....so what are some other good sources to buy bullets as I am a bit gun shy to order from them again and get the run around...who knows if/when the bullets will arrive.

I would reverse the charges on them if I were you.

Atleast contact them and tell them you aren't happy with their service. I didn't think they can charge you without first getting your approval though...Seems strange...Back to the OP's question: I've been buying a lot of bullets from SPS and also from crod1972 here at the fire when I can....

I buy most of my Noslers from Shooters Pro Shop when they have blems and overruns - usually stocking up in larger quantities. Barnes and Hornady I usually buy from the local shops. Otherwise I order from Grafs but have also used Midsouth.

If they're .224", buy 'em from the first place you find 'em in stock.

Shooters Pro Shop for Nosler bullets. Great place for .224, .284 and .308 bullets.

3 Bears in the Valley has some good prices as well, even on the powder.

Remember, this is Alaska. Always watch the shipping - lately especially on the Midway website. The darned thing seems to default to a method that is egregiously outrageous for us.

Yeah I usually do and selected Priority mail for $17....guess they decided surepost for $35 was a better option for me frown

Oh well, I'll start shopping elsewhere.

Grafs, Midway, Cabelas, Brownells and Midsouth, it all depends.

I miss me some Lock, Stock & Barrel.

Have you contacted Midway about this? A call to them may prove helpful.

Yes I did, they just said they are moving from the shipping system they had to the "sure post" so there are kinks in the system..."I'm sorry sir, but the system didn't account for the extra weight of the bullets. Once the shipment gets to a certain weight which the system didn't know, it bumps it up to the more expensive shipping, we are working to resolve the issue, but nothing we can do at this point. If the product does not show up in 30 business days let us know." I guess I don't understand the USPS flat rate if it fits it ships mantra. At this point I hope the bullets don't show up so I can at least make them refund the price of the bullets being as I'll have to eat the shipping cost either way.

I do my online purchases from Widners and in person purchases at Scheels in Reno. We have a Cabelas and Sportsmens warehouse but Scheels has better prices.

You don't have to eat anything. Call your credit card company. Midway can only get away with it if you allow them to. My response would have been that it's "against may policy" and I don't accept the charges, wouldn't have purchased from them if they were going to stick me with the charges. You can refund my excess shipping charges or I can call the credit card company and dispute the charges...

Grafs and Brunos. Most places don't carry the stuff I need locally.
