Freedom Munitions shanked me...

Put in an order for some 5.56 ammo @.23 per round about 2 1/2 weeks ago with Freedom Munitions. After calling to check on the order yet again they stated they under counted ammo and even though the website said it was in stock they supposedly don't have it.

Went to their website and saw the exact same ammo I ordered (same description and everything) and now it is .5 cents more per round.

I think I got duked by them. Not sure I want to order from them again.

Anyone else have this type of issue with Freedom Munitions?

Dave

Was your order cancelled, or still pending? If it's still pending, they should honor the price. If they cancelled, and the website shows that the same exact ammunition you purchased is in stock, then it's a possibility that they cancelled the order for profit.

By chance, were you ordering new or remanufactured?

***** I've ordered from them a LOT over the years and know after Sandy Hook they ran out of ALL ammo for some time. They were good about holding prices low on in stock stuff (at least for me..) but had to raise their prices quite dramatically due to increases in their costs for casings, bullets, etc.. One of my range friends who buys ammo for his club (it's a big club, and they buy ammo by the pallet..) said that other companies in the business of ammo sales bought an ass ton of ammo from them (Freedom) and re-sold it at a major markup, which I guess is their right, but it didn't make Freedom Munitions too happy. I guess the purpose of raising prices is so that only those folks who really want it or need it buy it, and so they can turn more of a profit - if you can get it cheaper, get it. If something bad happens like a Sandy Hook or other event that causes people to buy out all of the ammo, I don't blame Freedom and other companies raising prices as they know their costs will go up, probably dramatically, the next go around when they make more ammo...assuming they can get raw materials to make more ammo.

Hopefully prices come back down again. I've had other vendors straight up tell me they couldn't honor a price on items I was waiting for, as their costs went up. They didn't take my money, it was just an order I placed. Yes, it kinda sucked but I can see it from the business perspective as opposed to just mine.

Ordered from them many times without any complaints. Maybe they will honor the sale when they get restocked. It happens.

Order stuff and leave it in the cart for awhile,if they email you tell them your just waiting for a deal. Sometimes you get lucky.

Palmetto State Ammunition did the same thing to me on 6 boxes of 7x57, I ordered it online. I received an email 2 hours later telling me that it was out of stock and the next morning they had the same ammo for $6 more a box and had 50 boxes in stock. I asked them to honor the price that I ordered for online and they flat out refused, stating that they would loose money on the sale.
