I just received my first order of RMR bullets today . While I appreciate keeping the cost down , the way they were packaged leaves a lot to be desired . If they package them , they just wrapped a USPS box with layers of packaging tape . I could hardly get it off . I thought that I was going to have bullets all over the place cutting the tape off . Is this their normal packaging or did something happen at the post office ? IMG_2370.jpeg IMG_2371.jpeg

That’s fairly normal packaging for alot of bullet manufacturers….SNS, MBC, and RMR that I have received packing similar…


…….and……..they shipped free, didn’t they..?!?!
$6 dollars insured . I have never received any from MBC wrapped in tape like that .
 
My Xtreme bullets come packaged nice and you also get free shipping sometimes with a $150 dollar order .

Yes. RMR went to that packaging after several regular cardboard boxes busted open and bullets spilled everywhere. Now, USPS flat rate boxes may get corners dented but bullet bag inside stays intact. 👍

BTW, old video of Jake taping up a box ... Yeah, he should just stick to his day job of making bullets and leave the packaging to the "professional staff" :rofl:
 
I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed in the packaging for my last order from RMR. I bought 500 .224 75’s and 1K 9MM 124’s, and neither bag was sealed. I got a lot of spillage in the box. Spent 10-15 minutes sorting the bullets out.

That will NOT stop me from buying from RMR, but I may rethink ordering different bullets in the same order again. I almost ordered some 135 grain 9MM and that would have really sucked had they been mixed.

So I’m personally not looking for pretty, but I do expect functional.

And I never use the High Road discount…I appreciate Jake gives it, but I also consider free shipping and quality bullets at a great price a win already.

Just my opinion…YMMV
 
That's how all my RMR bullets come. Never had a broken package or damaged bullets.
I can tell that the tape they are using is 3M Packing tape. Strong stuff

My Prius hit something on the hyw a month ago, my FR plastic 1/4 panel came off. I put a peices of 3M tape on it. It’s still holding up. Passenger has never complained ether
 
I don’t order from RMR but my packages from Rim Rock , Graf’s , Precision Delta and Powder Valley look the same way when I get them I am glad they tape the hell out of them, bullets are heavy and don’t travel too well based on my experience with shipping companies and the post office.
