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.

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.

LOL. There's that.
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.

do it again but don't finalize to see if it happens again. if so, send them a pic and demand a refund.
Haven’t done business with Midway in many years.

Have never had a problem with Midwayusa.

Ammo ain't cheap, and the search function did cause 6.5x57 Mauser to appear on a search for 7x57 Mauser, so it's not all on me. I still have lots of good will on reserve for Midway USA for many years of good service, so this won't stop me from shopping there. Just sucks, is all, and they could have done something for me other than to say tough luck.

Tell ya what.. I SHOOT 6.5 x 57.. Its my favorite round. I'll either purchase it off of you or will swap you 7 x 57 brass for it.

PM me at your convenience.

I’m always amazed at the midway gripe threads. They always ship exactly what I order incredibly fast. The few returns I had were painless as well.
I'm sure you can sell it , assuming you paid a reasonable price. You don't handload?

Nice of you to offer. Let me see if the pawn broker down the street will give me anything close to what I paid.
The search engine doesn't understand metric. I'll bet this doesn't happen with imperial.

They might rattle around a bit but they'll shoot.
When you did a search with the term Mauser in it everything with Mauser in the title popped up.

Not sure how this is anyone's fault but your own.

That's how it goes w ammo at any store, or at least the ones that dont want lawsuits. Some shops will exchange or trade but not all.

They have no clue what you're returning is actually the factory loaded ammo that was sent to you.

What, exactly, should they do? Be specific.
Like ordering some 110 grain 30 cal. bullets and the screen shifted and wound up with some 69 grain22 cal bullets instead?

Not really a big deal they will be shot in the 22-250 AI.

Maybe a hint that it needs to be shot some more. grin

I believe you could gave canceled the order within a certain amount of time.
Hawkeye, you just hit on one of my pet peeves. A lot of websites expand the search criteria that you enter. Even if you narrow it and use restrictive language, your search criteria still gets expanded. Amazon, for instance, is terrible about that.

Yep, that's my point. A search for 7x57mm Mauser should have only offered 7x57 Mauser. If they only had three choices in that, then only three choices should have popped up.

It's on me, too, for not looking carefully enough, and seeing x57mm Mauser, and a low price, and clicking on it. I own that. But it's also the damned search function at fault. Particularly in the case of a product that cannot be returned if someone screws up.

PS I give them a pass for this because, generally, their service is great. I'm just blowing off steam here. Folks should still buy from Midway USA. Good company.
This past year I have bought a lot of things from Midway. So far my experience with them has been awesome.

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.


Would you go into a restaurant and place an order, and then when it came to the table, tell them you had changed your mind and wanted something different and expect not to pay for the first meal you ordered?
Sounds to me like Midway shipped you exactly what you ordered.

That’s what I’m talking about!

Seafire has a 6.5x57 I think?

I've read that it was quite a popular big game choice at one time. Some famous African hunter liked it, back in the day.


Try 54 not 57

Not sure hw this is anyone's fault but your own.

Sure, but they should be able to do something better than just telling me tough luck.

What, exactly, should they do? Be specific.

He's looking for something better than "tough luck." Maybe "pay attention next time" would placate him.

Every time I find some really nice looking range brass in a chambering I don't have a rifle/pistol in, I start thinking about dies, bullets, and a new firearm.

Fortunately, I generally resist.

Hey, he made the assertion, I'm just asking for clarification.

I'm sincerely interested in what, exactly, TRH thinks an online vender should "do" for him, when his OP clearly states that he searched for X ammo, yet, somehow added Y ammo to his cart, filled in payment info, reviewed the order for Y ammo, confirmed the order for Y ammo, and promptly received the Y ammo that he ordered, at which time he finally discovered/realized he didn't order X ammo at all?????
What about Z ammo?

That was Creedmoor. He didn't order that.

I use to use Midway lot when the offered FFL dealers discount, but that was many moons ago. I might use them like 2 times a year, never had a problem but never tried to return anything

They sent me an e- mail that shipping.was.free yesterday so put a few things in my cart. Shipping was going to be 15 bucks so I emptied.my cart and didn't order anything.

MidwayUSA is the Walmart of gun/outdoors stuff... Love them or hate them... they are a huge well oil machine that carries VERY USEFUL stuff.

If they went away tomorrow we would have to buy crap motor oil at Dollar General at $8 a quart... and Hopps at the LGS at $19.99 a bottle.

I don't really care in you love them or hate them, but logistics and efficiency really do matter on getting chit done.

If I lived in Tennessee and turkey was $0.19 a pound or pork butts were $0.29 a pound I might sing a different tune...
I'd love to buy something from Midway but everything I go there looking for says Out of Stock no backorder. I don't know how they stay in business

Yes he did. He did a search for 6.5 Creedmoor and .22 Creedmoor popped up so he placed the order.
