In my search for 6.5 PRC ammo , I came across an unbelievable website call tacticoolammoshop.com. The ammo was very reasonable....Hmmm, and as I went to pay and the site stated no credit card. You could pay with Zelle, paypal or Bitcom.... Hmmm. I called the contract number and a gentlemen I,m assuming from India answered the phone our conversation was very short as he didn't understand my Louisiana english and I clearly could not understand him, angrily he terminated the call . I was wondering if anyone has every purchased from this company?

Thanks for reading.

I'm not quite sure of the proper way to answer this directly but...

The website is a template used by various other businesses. The layout is the same for several business. The address in every case is the same but the phone is often different. It's written wrong with the + in front of the (1) instead of behind it as in 1+area code, etc.

Where did they dig up all this ammunition anyway? Nobody else has any at these prices.

The payment forms stopped me immediately and I withdrew from the website after cancelling the cart.

I didn't waste time with a phone call since I refuse to use remote customer services in foreign countries.

I could be wrong but this has a distinctive odor to it...

Let them join and become sponsors, then I'll apologize.

I ordered and paid for a Kel Tec P17. I'v asked several times for a tracking number and as of this AM the won't respond to my chat message. I guess I should have been suspicious when they had a P17 in stock. I'm out $230 which isn't a disaster but I wonder how many others there are out there like me. I'll have to see if there is any recourse.

Looked into this before I bought a lot of ammo and these folks are not legitimate. Not Better Business Bureau members and don’t ship guns or ammo once paid for. The Zelle item was a big red flag and they texted me before I could Zelle so that helped raise my awareness.

I lost $330 to this scam. I ordered a pistol that was supposedly in stock, paid by Zelle, and never heard from them again. Zelle only accepts payment from your checking, not credit cards which can be disputed. I will never use Zelle again. Don't do business with this company, they are a scam. I reported my experience to the FTC and the FBI.

This is definitely a scam site. I have lost money with them as well. I am not sure how to make the entire community aware so no more people will fall for it.

Apparently I too will be suckered out of $500 (unless Zelle will refund it) for 6.5 PRC ammo then. I had my suspicions and should have tested them before getting all warm and fuzzy that I found a good deal. The “representative” must be the same Arab or East Indian fellow described in other posts. The phone conversation sounded like a google call center. I wonder if Peter Jackson, CEO and Founder is aware of this?😂

Another victim here....I'm 300 bucks out. Could've been worse and only my second gun purchase. Due diligence is key.....I feel like a heel. I wish I had found you guys sooner.

They are a complete rip off. They want you to use pay pal friends and family then you have no proof of payment. They got me for $180.00 plus KelTec P 17.
