    Recently purchased some 9mm that was offered at Dave's done by a reloader in Lynden. Many rounds had not been put through the final die and had bulged cases cause FTE...had them examined at the range. Took them back to Dave's and the they wouldn't do anything about the issue...told me to contact the re-loader. Asked for a phone number since none was on the box and was told he didn't have it.

    Dave's just lost my patronage.

    What does it say on the box.. any sort of company name? If not, both parties are not doing the right thing and they know it. I half suspect "Dave's" reloads them.

    Dave's sold them to you, they are liable if they blow up in your face. They should know better then selling reloads in the first place. And not to be rude, but I wouldn't buy reloads from anyone I didn't 100% trust.

    I would take the ammunition back and remind them of that liability when you ask for a refund.

    They are either commercial reloads or not. They should be for Dave's to have sold them.
    If they are commercial reloads Dave's is not liable nor would/should he afford a refund, same as factory loads.

    So did you figure out if those came in a Ziploc bag yet or what?

    @PeglegJones: this is Joel from Dave's Sports in Lynden. Just read your post and we're very sorry about what happened. That is absolutely not in line with our policy and whichever staff member gave you that response was incorrect and will be re-trained on this topic. That local re-loader is no longer doing so, so it shouldn't be a future issue, and regarding your 9mm ammo there, you can bring it in to exchange for some factory-new loads. You can email info@davessports.com and we'll get this taken care of for you (and would like to find out who you talked to if possible). Thanks and sorry again about the error on our part.

    Looks like c-deaf makes a career out of being wrong, he must work for the government.

    Wrong about what? It seems that the/an employee should have directed him more properly to the commercial reload manufacturer.

    And what are you right about, you being a dick, again?

    For someone that likes to take shots you sure don't take them well. Lighten up, buttercup.
