I'll call that a lesson learned.
I hope you didn't take it as us being a bunch of sticks in the mud. I'm sure we've all done that before. I know I've left ammo at home, and accidentally bought the wrong kind 1/2 paying attention and in a hurry. It's just frustrating to see someone putting down the mfg when so many other factors can come into play.
Like the other folks said, even the guys at the outdoor store could have accidentally put them in the wrong boxes showing clients different ammo all spread out on the counter. It could be just about anything. It could have happened at the factory. Could be any number of things.
This is just another reason why I handload... I KNOW which bullets and powder are in my rounds, and I know they're precise.
