Then Cabalas should shipped you a pound of W231 on their dime. It was their error.
Yea... That's not gonna happen with cabelas. If I had really thrown a fit they may have given me like a 5$ off coupon or something, but that's the best you're getting.
It is a market driven economy isn't it?
Enough grousing about prices.
My LGS is no longer there . . .
They're overcharging for powders and primers these days ... 10% more than Midsouth and Powder Valley for instance, often more.
They continue to give round-up donations to the NRA when 1000s of us have practically begged them to redirect those funds to the GOA.
They're notification feature is worthless. Total hit or miss. It's almost like a bait and switch game with them at times.
I dunno ... me personally, I would not have Midway in my Top 5 go-to anymore these days.
1 - Powder Valley
2 - Midsouth (but you had better be willing to be very patient)
3 - RMR
4 - Brownells
5 - Graf's
6 - Natchez
7 - Sage's
Used to do a lot of business with Widener's but not anymore really.
I do as much local business as possible with Sportsman's Warehouse and Palmetto State Armory.
have not bought a thing from Midway after they showed their truer colors - when they started charging $1200 for 1,000 IMI 5.56. LGS is were my $$$ goes to
Interesting observations and very valid. I have never gotten a notification from them that good were available. Maybe they are living off of their old reputation. I read that Larry is an employee now.
My understanding of powders and primers from Midway. They act as an agent site, so to speak. I have not watched it all this time around. But last panic, when Powder Valley got some inventory in, it seemed the same showed up on Midway. I don't think Midway actually ships powders or primers. But I could be wrong this time. Things change over time.
Powder Valley had the powder I needed.
Eggleston and Extreme bullets shipped right away.
Brazos took a little while to produce the bullets, then they shipped them quickly.
Other than that I haven't ordered a whole lot this year.
I won't say it's a complaint, but their website is practically useless now. My "local" store is 2 hours away. I can check inventory and 99% of the time is wrong. I have even called the store and been lied to. And now everything says "unavailable" under ship to store or ship to home.
I've ordered from 50 online places id bet. All have been fine. Cdnn, psa, lax, midway, Natchez, brownells, numrich, sportsman's guide, recoilgunworks.com, magshack, tombstone..... I can't remember all of them. There is no "local" store so it's always been drive 2 hours or order online Well not always... it used to be drive 2 hours or send in an order and wait 4-6 weeks.....
Last couple weeks I've ordered from psa, magshack, and cdnn. All had same day shipping
I remember the late 2000's crunch when CTD in Fort Worth pulled items off the shelf, held them in reserve, and put out a small amount at a time at 2-3x prices. I swore I'd never buy anything from them again, and to date I haven't.
Cabela's and Bass Pro are at the bottom of my list because they are rapidly becoming a glamping/fashion clothing store. I expect in 5 years or less they'll pull a Dick's Sporting Goods and get out of guns altogether.
For most of.... even that was ok. They are free to charge whatever. What made many of us never consider ctd again was that several People had orders that were bought and paid for, but ctd canceled the orders as out of stock. and relisted them at the higher price the same days in stock.
Ill add more to my list.
