    possible scam

    ordered some 30-40 ammo at a price too good to be true. Hornady Custom for under $25 per box. After questioning why order was on hold I was told they couldn't contact the card company to verify and that I would have to use another payment method. The company, Bakobox, could not contact Discover ? Beware of Bakobox !

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    Yeah I bet the "another payment method" would either be PayPal, or some other instant payment method. Something definitely sounds up but at least you didn't lose any of your money

    Keep an eye on the card you used and expect fraudulent charges to begin to appear. It will start small just some change but then it will be big. You may be better off canceling that card and having it replaced.

    I honestly don't think Hornady has loaded 30-40 since 2019 and that's why they can't get it to you because they don't have it.

    The old warning bears repeating: if it’s too good to be true, then it’s not true.
