Mods please move this to the Negative Feedback Forum.
Here are the coms from the consummation of the deal. I can post them back further if needed but basically we were discussing amounts, as I was initially interested in a large quantity.
I will not be able to respond to this thread tomorrow 14 Dec due to my work schedule and an evening dinner meeting. I will monitor it and be back Thursday.

Ok- thank you for checking on that. I'll go with 10 boxes please. From the same lot if possible. Let me know what my half of shipping is and I'll send the funds your way.
Happy Thanksgiving, XXXX

Hi, I just received the rounds a few minutes ago. I appreciate the quick shipping, but I have to let you know that I'm pretty disappointed in the quality of them. They have obviously been exposed to moisture as the brass is heavily tarnished, some are even black in color. Please let me know if you would like a picture and what your thoughts are.

I would like a picture or 2. I don't know what to say. I'm going to open what I have left here to see about the condition they're in. I keep a dehumidifier running within a yard of my ammunition and safe. I'm baffled

Sorry for delay, got home super late and ended up going in early to leave a bit early. Here are a few pics. The pics are from separate boxes, some are worse than others. Where you able to check your other rounds?
I attached the exact pics that are posted above

I haven't had the chance to check out mine yet. Was it every box? That's crazy. I sold to a couple of other guys and I'm going to reach out to them to see if they have similar issues

Yes every box.

I haven't heard anything back from you in a few days.
Please send me a return shipping label and I will return the ammo for a refund.
I have attached a pic of the original label for your reference. I can reuse the same box.

I'm waiting on input from the two other buyers. they've already posted positive feedback but haven't replied to email. I'm also going to contact site admin for input
Dec 8, 2016 9:47 PM
Was your ammo you still had in the same condition?
Dec 8, 2016, at 8:47 PM
I have some in similar condition but not all
Dec 8, 2016, at 8:56 PM
So it's obviously a storage issue then, as the boxes had no signs of catching moisture during shipping, but that level of tarnish/corrosion obviously doesn't happen in a couple days anyway. I'm fine with swapping it for non moisture issue ammo too if you have it. So whatever is fine, I'm flexible, just lets figure it out so we can both move on.
Feel free to call too.

Can we resolve this today?

I was waiting for anything back from a mod, I PMd WILSON. You're evidently really worried about this up to the point of contacting other members. So, if you want pristine ammunition, you'll pay shipping of what you have back to me and shipping of the boxes that I open, photograph and get your approval on.

Well, I do not think it is fair for me to pay for anything.
I did contact the other person who I suspect you had sold ammo to, after you mentioned that they had received theirs and left positive feedback. This surprised me as I could not understand why anyone could receive ammo in the condition you sent and not have said something and let alone leave positive feedback. I thought I might have received a "bad batch" or something you where unaware of. They indicated theirs had some light tarnish too, but nothing too bad.
My questions to you are:
Should I have not expected great, pristine, new condition ammo? If not, what should I have expected? You did not disclose the fact the ammo had been improperly stored or had any issues at all in your for sale ad.
I assumed you had no idea it was in such bad shape.
At this point, I think there are only two fair options to resolve the issue. (If a MOD/Peer suggest another option, I'm open). But again, I do not think it is reasonable or fair for me to pay any more money.
1. Please send me a shipping label and I return this to you for a refund.
2. Please send me a shipping label and swap the ammo for non issue ammo.
I have bought and sold ammo (this week, actually) countless times on the EE. I have never received ammo like this, or sold ammo like this, so I wanted to make sure that I did not have unrealistic expectations or was being too picky so I started this thread to ask for opinions on the deal (link below).
Please let me know your intentions today, I would REALLY like to avoid a negative feedback thread.
