I order a lot from them. Have for many years. Recently, I punched in the search term "7x57 Mauser," and several results popped up. I searched for the cheapest and clicked, then went through the finalization process. Today, two boxes of 6.5x57 Mauser arrived, not 7x57 Mauser. I checked my order history, and indeed, that's what I appear to have ordered. Now, sure, I should have looked more carefully at what popped up on my search for 7x57 Mauser before clicking, so there's that, but when I called and explained that this purchase option popped up on a search for 7x57 Mauser, they should have agreed to accept it in return, but refused, due to policy on ammo. So I was forced to eat the loss. I guess I understand the reason for the policy, but still not thrilled.

The end of democracy, and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.

Yep, I will sell them one way or another. I've sold ammo to the pawn broker down the street before, but at a huge discount. Same at gun shows. They have to be able to resell it at a profit.

Loaded ammo I assume? You really can't blame them for the no return policy.

Yeah, like I say, I can understand the policy. Still not a happy customer.

Reason for a loony purchase of a new rifle.

I ordered a game camera from Midway for my grandson for Christmas. I gave it to him when he was visiting during the holidays. When he went to set it up in North Carolina where he lives, it didn't work. Midway would not send an RMA to his address. They said he'd have to ship it at his expense, or ship it to me so that I could ship it to them on the RMA. No more gifts from Midway.

Sounds like by the way you type it that you were right and they just made an error.

They should eat the 6.5 and let you keep it and apply credit to the 7x57 and get it on the way.

No, he ordered the wrong ammo. They sent the (wrong) ammo he ordered.

It's not his fault he ordered the wrong ammo, it's the search function's fault.

Haven’t done business with Midway in many years.

I like MidSouth much better although I think Slummy & Rene have some insiders there and get the good stuff
