Purchasing ammo on line

I ordered 2 boxes of 250-3000 ammo loaded with Barnes bullets. When I received them powder was loose in the boxes, bullets were very loose in the case necks and 2 bullets fell out of the cases. In all over 30% had loose bullets. Today they get sent back and if the promised replacements are of the same poor unsafe quality then I willl take some kind of negative action and will advise all here on the outcome and company name.

Hopefully thats not normal and customer service will take care of you.

Ive never ordered ammo online. Is it a lot cheaper to buy it that way?

I'm finding out this 250-3000 ammo is a tad bit hard to find and that's why I went on line. The ammo shop had a whole bunch of sales so I thought I was safe....
