View Full Version : Portugese .308 from Sportsmansguide
September 07, 2001, 18:05
If you've checked, Sportsmansguide.com is out of all bulk Portugese .308 - specifically, the 200, 400, and 1000 round packages, and are only advertising the 20 round boxes at $3.47. I contacted Customer Service this morning to see if they have plans/backorders to carry this item. Customer Service told me they have "no way to know" and to check current catalogs for availibility. I had ordered 1K on 8/15; was provided a status that it was back-ordered with an expected shipping date of 9/17; and THEN it shipped 8/17 and arrived one day later than the rest of my order - go figure. I had hoped the 9/17 shipping date was the date they were expecting new shipments, but Customer Service did NOT mention that. Good luck. :confused: :confused:

Some years back when I was a novice at purchasing ammo I frequently would purchase from Sportsmans Guide. Many times when I saw the price per round I would jump up and order. Then one day I saw the way good old boy Gary Olen was raping me and everyone on shipping charges for ammo and I wised up. Now when I buy ammo I figure the price per round when it arrives at my door, not by the price in a fancy add.
Anyone who buys ammo should invest in a subscription to Shotgun News, http://www.shotgunnews.com/ and page through the dozens of ammo adds every ten days for best prices, AND ALWAYS FIGURE IN YOUR PRICE PER ROUND AFTER ADDING IN SHIPPING COST. I don't mind paying actual shipping cost but "HANDELING" charges should be in the cost of the item. Please note that I still do business with Sportsmans Guide and appreciate the good service and good products I receive from them but when it comes to ammunition purchaces, we have parted company.
I purchase a tremendous amount of ammunition in many different calibers and here are my guidelines. 1.You will always get best price by shopping and ordering ammo and having it shipped. 2.In most cases you will get a better price by ordering from an out of state dealer because then you can beat state sales tax. 3.Watch for dealers that charge a percent fee for credit card purchases. It may be best to send a money order to get the best price. 4.Never limit yourself to one source, always shop around. 5.Most important Always figure final price per round.

If you go to their website and search, it is NOT listed. From the Sportsmansguide Home Page, go to the August - Shooting Supplies Catalog - Page 40 and select your choice -- it kicks off a "pop-up" box indicating the availability, and that you will NOT be billed until they have it. Good luck!!! :) :)
