Same old crap, just another day.

Just got back from Cabelas and the racks are empty of every bullet for the .308 and I could count every box on the shelfs with my two hands.
No .223s, 7MAGS etc,,, the same old crap.
How in HADIES am I gonna do any loading with this problem?

Not sure what you are looking for but I picked up a couple boxes of 175gr SMK from cabelas on line a few days ago and just checked, they are still in stock.

Check online. Midway, Sinclair, and Grafs have all been getting decent inventory of bullets. I never used Grafs prior to the shortages of late, but they were referred by an LRH member and I was impressed with their pricing, inventory, and reasonable shipping. Worth taking a look if you haven't already.

Also check Third Generation Shooters Supply. They have a few varieties of .308 bullets on hand.

Re: Same old crap, just another day.

I found my .3006 and .308 is the most accurate with SST boattails..no brass and 0 primers.
that was in Saginaw.

Re: Same old crap, just another day.

First off, forget Cabelas for anything unless you get it on points. Everything is overpriced, I mean everything. In as much as I'm about 2 miles from the store in Dundee and have a black card, I do get stuff there but on points only.

Secondly, whatever you do buy, if you buy anything (except the fudge), open the box and make sure what's on the box is whats inside. I always open the box or package and inspect the goods, always and I do it right in the store in front of anyone and everyone. Reason being (I happen to know one of the managers personally so this is a true statement)... Customers play bait and switch all the time, taking a more expensive item and putting it in a cheaper package, somethimes, not even a package with a comparable item, so, always check the contents. That happened to me a while back. I wanted a Harris 2 axis bi-pod (on points) and picked one off the rack. When I looked inside it wasn't a Harris, it was a Chinese clone.

Also, if you buy an optic, never buy one from the display cased, insist on one from the stockroom and one thats factory sealed. One of my customers bought was he was told was the last Nikon 223 specific scope they had. When I mounted it, the elevation was inoperable. Turns out, someone had focked it up, returned it to the store and they thoughtfully put it back out as new. The people at the return counter never look at anything except to see that it's intact. Most don't know a scope from a flashlight in thye first place.

On ammunition boxes, look inside. I was told by my friend thats it's common for customers to spit tobacco juice in ammo boxes, or gum or hale eaten candy.....

He told me that one time they were stocking after hours and a carton with a Rockchucker was partially opened. They looked inside and and a customer had stuffed a ****** diaper in the box.

In the shoe/boot department, wear your old clapped out shoes in, try on a pair of new shoes or boots and walk out.. with the new ones. From what I've been told, they have minimal security and expect the sales associates to monitor fraud. The cost of shoplifting and merchandise damage is built into the retail price which is why everything costs more besides the greed of the owners.

Don't get me wrong, I like the Cabelas Visa for a couple reasons, one, I have 2 cards, one business and one personal and two, they own their own bank (Foremost) so they carry their own paper and I don't deal with the nationwide banksters.

I can see why this country is in the shape it's in, a whole raft of 'citizens' need eliminated from the gene pool including some firearm owners and wannabees.

Your best be is Internet and out of state suppliers. Why pay Snyder for the privedledge of supporting a local business thats not local anyway. Besides, I think Snyder is a twit.

A little bit of rant but mostly facts about Cabelas....

The fudge is good however.....
