In the Early stages of the shortage (April 2020?), I ordered 2 cases of Hornady Critical Duty 9mm 135gr from Grabagun. $259/cs. They were starting to run short, and shipping was delayed! It finally shipped, FEDEX. The shipment took forever, FedEx blamed COVID, and then I got a message that it was delivered. When I got home, there was nothing at the door. I called my neighbor, but they had not seen Fedex either! The shipment disappeared, and the FeDEx signature card just said COVID! Grabagun was good about refunding my money, but the ammo was never replaced. I was adamant about the shipment being irreplaceable to FedEx, and they supposedly did an investigation , but ultimately said they could do nothing about it !

I would hope now days the vendor would double pack in a plain box.
Shipping ammo in an OEM box is like shipping a box of Rolex's or an illegal drug ~ it is going to get swiped . Frown

I got 5 flats of 20 Gauge a few weeks back that were in OEM boxes. Amazingly enough, they were all there.

Yeah Midway shipped this to me in early December. First time I ever ordered ammo from them. Never had ammo shipped like that before.

I don’t buy the story that most vendors say about not gouging on their ammo...I have been buying direct from Federals website and last order was Fed 124gr and 115gr range ammo for $22.99 a box or $.46 a round. If Federal sells to the general public for that price I would think that vendors get it for less than that.
There is a 2 box limit on each gr 9mm range ammo so I usually get 115gr, 124 gr, .22,or 22mag so my order is over $149.00 and then it is free shipping.


I've purchased Federal/American Eagle at $14.99 a box of 50 retail within the last month. That's just a fraction under $.30 a round. So that would indicate Federal is doing a bit of gouging of their own for direct consumer sales. I purchased from a local fleet supply store and I'm sure they made their usual mark up on it. Customers around here would never step foot in the door again if they dared to price gouge on ammo.



Got an email from Optics Planet on Friday and my July 31 order of a case of Federal 9mm 115 gr has shipped and my price is $215.95 to my door.
Now if OP can still fill orders at the July price I would think that they are still making money on this so are their prices/backorders from suppliers locked in?

Somewhere along the line someone is making a shitload of money by the time ammo gets on the shelves.

btw...I quit placing ammo orders with OP when their prices rose above $300.00 for 1,000 9mm because I thought that was too high
