Who is stealing our Reloading components.

As reloading becomes more popular it has become apparent to me that some folks at the usps need our components more than we do. I received a small flat rate package that was supposed to contain 16 lbs. of lead for my bullet casting (from a trusted source I have been buying from for some time). Upon receipt of this package I knew immediately that it was not the lead due to the weight. Instead I received a heart monitor made by ecardio lol. Lucky me. This package had a sticker on it that said it arrived at its second location missing it's contents and unsealed. So OK I get it sometimes a package comes open right. (not this suppliers packages). But anyways if it arrived without contents who in the world put that heart monitor in there lol. Just wondering how many have had issues with this. Thanks for any input.

I had 4 lbs of Win 231 disappear en-route at a UPS depot. The package arrived, but never left.

I called the vendor (Precision Reloading) and they waited a week to see if UPS would "find" it, then sent another 4 lbs. I was worried that they would give me a refund, but they knew how rare it was. They made a specific effort to hold 4 lbs for me just in case UPS could not find mine.

My seller is making this right as well. I just hope the same person doesn't get their hands on the second package.

I bought 2 boxes of bullets from the for sale section on here and when it showed up the bullets were gone but the empty boxes were in the package. It was stamped received in damaged condition but the box looked perfect.
What can go wrong, how can it hurt you

My UPS driver routinely asks me: "Does this contain a gun or something?"
It's simple: If you don't like guns, don't own one.

A buddy of mine drives for UPS. He says they pretty well know all the major vendors of gun supplies and they often have a pretty good idea of what is in a lot of the boxes they deliver.

Not a reloading topic.
Do you ever wonder why nobody ever robs the bag man for the mob? No, you don't.
