Thanks for the link. I ordered two cans as an experiment.
That photo was stolen from their web site. I just hope that the cans don't have rust holes like in the picture (rt side edge of the top can). Because, I'd think that with holes like that, water might have corroded the ammo. Cope's says that the ammo is "still in new condition." But, I'll have to see about that.
Thanks Mark. They ran this same sale Feb 16th and the ammo sold out in about 24 hours. I never did see any posts about ammo with problems so it'll be interesting to see what you get. Copes is usually pretty good about descriptions.
And the shipping is $9.95 flat for any quantity... tempting...
You're right about that. They only charged me $9.95 for shipping even though I ordered two cans. I thought I was gonna get charged $9.95 for each can. I should have also ordered some of their parts and small stuff.
good price....basically 20 bucks off/tin vs where i usually go. Just shoot this up first and save your other cans for later.
Thanks, good deal.
Deal is over.....it's no longer listed.
Cope's called me today about my order to see it was ok to send me an opened can. They open random cans to check the quality of the ammo. No problem for me, I plan on shooting it, not storing it. He told me that they will be getting large batches of this ammo about every two months. The warehouse where it's stored is on the East Coast somewhere and it had a leak in the roof that rusted the outside of the cans. So far they only found one can that was rusted thru.
He also said they had a good deal on steel 9MM ammo, I can't remember exactly what it was, check the web site.
I appreciate them calling me and asking me about me about an open can, that was cool.
What a disappointment............
I got my two cans today and I was prepared to open them and re-pack them into .50 cal USGI Ammo Cans. But, look at them................
Jeez........the only spot of rust was on the bottom of one can. Look by the bare spot. I guess I could just sand down the area and paint her a bit (or not). Oh well.......what a score!!!!!!!!!!
PS...........I cheated a bit. I actually wiped down the cans with a damp rag prior to taking the pics. And before anyone asks, NO the can opener did not come with the cans.
You got ripped off! You paid for rust and got none! Nice score!
I've got mine two delivered. They're fairly rusted, not anywhere close to the pictures posted above.
