    Got my Midway Flyer the other day and I see Lapua .338 brass is on sale in 100 lots.

    Other capibers too.... FYI

    Everytime I call midway about something in their flyer they're "out of stock."

    They use the phrase "Just About Everything..." (for the shooting sports).

    I'm going to suggest to them that they amend that a bit to say "Just About Everything is Out of Stock, Backorder OK?" :D

    Seriously, though... thanks for the tip. I'm sure some folks will get lucky and find some. They were out of the Bushnell Elite 10X tactical scopes about the second day the flyer came out. :(

    The 338 LM brass was listed for $99.99 per 100 but it was a mistake. I called to order a few thousand rounds but I knew it had to be a mistake. The young lady said that they'd had a bunch of calls but that everyone had been very nice when she explained it was a misprint.

    I've learned to be patient and backorder. Waiting makes it worthwhile and none of us are going anywhere, at least not in the next month or so.... hopefully.

    so it's a misprint.... Typical. somewhere on their site it states that 'not responsible for errors in pricing' Kinda reminds me of the current government here. Not responsible.......
    and certainly not responsive......

    ...and the little guy with the glasses and the Jimmy Carter smile is plastered on the pages as well....:D

    My issue with Midway is when you order something, it don't ship asap anyway. It always seems to take a protracted amount of time...and no, I don't want to 'round up' for the NRA. They get enough from me now.

    I have about 3/4 of a coffee can (plastic) full of spent casings now and working on more everyday........
