I bought many many extremes from them because of free shipping and/or ship to store.
A month ago I ordered two thousand 158gr RNFP direct from Xtreme With free shipping during a "pop up" sale. I'll wait for free shipping since I'm good for a while.
I'll have to check the shelves next time. Maybe they're stocking them now so they don't have ship.
Shipping to me for 1K is $29 & $40 for 2K which is still cheaper than Cabelas w/"free shipping" since Cabelas price is $64 vs $50 Xtreme price. $204+40 shipping+tax(Xtreme) vs $256+tax(cabelas) All irrelevant if Cabelas doesn't ship them anymore.
Cabela’s is 30 miles from me so I only went when I had them shipped to store for pickup. Same with primers & powder before they stopped that. And their online inventory is so unreliable, it looks like I’m a former customer.
But they were the only ones selling plated SWCs for .357 mag and I do like those bullets.
Xtreme kept stock on some things when the shortage was at it's worst but they were always the most expensive also. Probably why they still had stock.
Yes, they’re are fine outfit and I’ve bought 9mm from them in the past, but I also load .45ACP and they just don’t have what I want.
Right now for example, they only have 230gr RN FMJ and prices are .18 per (not a bargain, but free shipping is a good thing.)
Extreme has 9 different flavors of plated .45ACP in stock right now. Yes they’re plated, not FMJ, but if I want to load 200 SWC, Extreme is the only choice between the two. (And not infrequently, Extreme runs free shipping specials.)
So like most things, it all depends.
