    I was pleasantly surprised that the distributor refunded my money for them. That happened years ago, I've had them sitting for about 6 years, so, in reality they didn't cost me anything but having taken them apart now, I'd never buy anymore. Typically, quality 338 Lapua loaded rounds will cost upwards of 100-150 bucks a box of 20. I cannot remember what I paid back then but I'm sure it was better than 50 bucks a box (20) and I bought 5 boxes.

    These are for my upcoming NM Elk hunt and I want to make doubly sure the bullet goes where I send it. As a rule, I'm not a factory round person in the first place.

    Least I'll wind up with useable brass.

    this is very surprising to me. My experience with this ammunition has been great in several calibers. In fact, I often will buy it when I pick up a new caliber with the intention of using the brass for reloading

    Have used several pistol calibers, and .308. All went bang just fine. I don't shoot (can't see) out far enough where ballistics will make the difference in a deer kill or not.

    Got a box of PPU lead round nose 38 special. Shot it 4 years ago. It seems I remember it maybe being a little hot.

    My only experience has been with the .38SW. No issues.
