My dad has been working hard on filling formed brass orders for my customers using my APS wildcat chambered rifles. Anyway, over the past two weeks, he has gone through 15 boxes of 338 Lapua brass in forming rounds for the 7mm Allen Magnum, 300 Allen Xpress and 338 Allen Xpress for customers. Of those 15 boxes of brass, all new Lapua 100 ct boxes, sealed tight when they arrived, here is what we actually got: 6 boxes w/ 98 cases 9 boxes w/ 99 cases That means that I paid for 1500 338 Lapua cases and received 1479 cases..... Now I know in the scheme of things this is not a big deal but at $2.20 each+shipping, it starts to add up and nearly $50 our of pocket...... Now I know this happens. Its not uncommon at all to see this from time to time, generally you see it with smaller cases alot but when your dealing with brass the cost and quality of 338 Lapua brass, this is really unacceptable, not to mention happening in every one of 15 boxes of brass. It would seem that someone is trying to save a buck here(many actually) at Lapua. One would hope this is not intentional but its pretty consistant to think other wise. Just think, for every 80 boxes of brass sold, you get a free box to sell at full price so they could make ALOT of money for nothing other then ripping off their customers. I would hope this is not what they are doing and that this is an isolated occurance but it smells bad anyway. THis is the first time I have ever seen this with Lapua brass. Just a bit annoyed is all. Perhaps I should contact Lapua and fill them in on this problem!!! Nuff said, rant over.
