    They lowered the prices again but will be charging shipping after May 9th. Until then they have $5 flat rate no matter how big/small the order is.

    Good time to make the switch to coated lead, which is what I want to do anyway.

    I saw that. It's too bad. I've turned a lot of folks onto them for bullets. The free shipping was a big selling point. Had to order another 2000 today, just because.

    Keep in mind, fellas, there never was "free shipping". Their prices included the shipping charge - you were still paying for it.
    They've simply adjusted their prices and decided that for marketing purposes, it is better to compete and charge shipping separately like everyone else does.

    Its a great marketing plan! They will sell a ton of bullets before the 9th by people worried about the shipping charges. Then they will adjust the price accordingly, they could be charging a little more anyways and still be competitive.

    Luckily for me, we have a couple of local xtreme distributers. You actually get a couple or three dollars off the internet price from them. I just meet up with them swinging by the club during the weekdays for practice.

    It isnt MGs price hike that annoyed me. It is how they treated their dealers/customers that already had orders in and paid for before Sandy Hook. They contacted them and said we have your bullets ready to ship but we have jacked up the price due to demand.

    Similar to Brownells canceling my order that was already paid so they could raise the price on the magazines.

    As someone said, nothing is free. I kind of actually prefer the manufacturers that charge actual shipping separately. If they tell you how much can be fit in each flat rate box, that lets you optimize your order to get the most out of your shipping fee. The ones where shipping is included, they're just averaging shipping costs and making that part of the price for your bullets.

    I just placed my first xtreme bullets order, and then got the email about the change. May have to stock up before the 9th.

    MG prices have gone up quite a bits as of late.

    So their email says

    Big letters and all. However, I go to order 9mm bullets and I no longer see any 1,000 count offerings? Am I missing something?

    There are no 1000 counts, you order 2 500 count and the discount applies to that.
