Ordered the spam can 12-15-2005 and of course was back ordered. Was emailed yesterday that it was shipped 2-15-2006. Will arrive 2-17-2006 per UPS. Checked credit card statement and was charged the original price of $52.21 including shipping. Was well worth the wait.

I ordered (2) of those spam cans on Dec 19 and just got shipping notice yesterday. It was for the 52.00 price so I guess I can't complain.

I ordered mine on the 12-22. Dammit... looks like I missed the shipment.... and now it shows a BO till April 28th!

I payed $66.71 delivered for the one 640 round can of 7.62x39 FMJ. That was $61.72 + $9.99 shipping minus $5.00 coupon.

Yep - mine was priced at $52. Obviously, they are giving preference to higher priced backordered. That is bullshit. God I hate SG.

What is with the hate of SG man...

SPG does their orders at random. If 10 people place an order on day 1, then those names are randomly drawn to get the few cans that they get in with each new shipment. Then a few from day 2, etc. It sucks because it is not entirely first come first serve, but it is not done based on how much you pay. However, larger orderes may be pushed back because their quantities are limited. If you have very few cans, why ship only 2 cans of one mans order when you will have to pay extra shipping to ship two more later? The logical thing is to wait untill you have all of it.

No - the logical thing is to ship first ordered.... first shipped.

Going to have to stick up for SG here. All I know is that they are offering prices that are cheap as hell on ammo, when they could easily join the rest of the world in raising prices. I also know that they give nice notices which are quite accurate as to when the order will ship when on backorder. Everyone has the choice on whether or not to shop there. I don't know how they organize orders when received, and really I don't care. I know when i order when i am getting my ammo, so if someone orders a few minutes after me and he gets his order 20 weeks before me, i dont care, because I knew when i ordered when the ammo should be expected.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:44:44 PM EDT
I had ordered back in Oct kept getting notices, but I finally got the product last month. For the price it was worth the wait, I keep a few thousand rounds stockpiled so it wasnt like I had to have it.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 2:23:50 PM EDT
Ordered mine in late Dec. I think. Just had to renew the backorder- expected ship date 3/3/06. $113 shipped for 2 cans.

Anyone have links to old coded wolf from SG- is the $55 a tin still being accepted or did they stop. When did SG have the $71 per 1K that Migradog mentioned- seems I missed out on that one. at least I have those 2 cans on BO. I wish I had the money to really stock up.

Glad to see it is trickling in from the motherland though.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 2:36:44 PM EDT
Yeah.

Are they still accepting orders at those prices? Does anyone have the #'s?

Thanks

They stopped doing the $52 price a long time ago. Even if you could place an order at that price most likely it'd be changed with you recieved your backorder notice. This is what happened to me when I ordered 1 can back in early January. Of course I got my can the next week.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:09:46 PM EDT
they stopped the "cheap" order codes (AX5A) mid january

What does SG stand for? I'm getting my first AK next week and am new at this. I'm going to need ammo.
Thanks.

Sportsman's guide. Do they not display ammo on their web site?


Link Posted: 3/1/2006 11:05:07 AM EDT
Got shipping notice two weeks ago and was charged for it, but it is no show. Tried to track it but the link on SG id dead. SG says it was delivered but they will do there own trace. This is the first time I have had a problem with SG, I hope it is a fluke.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:52:14 PM EDT
Now they say it was delivered, by speedy delivery it is being investigated. But bottom line credit card charged no ammo.

You might have guessed there is a 7.62 x 39 ammo shortage right now. if you order ammo from Sportsman Guide now, you probably won't get it until May.....maybe.
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 7:48:17 AM EDT
Dang it. They pushed my two cans to 3/20. It had been set to ship on 3/3. Oh well; I'll continue the waiting game.
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 4:09:00 PM EDT
I received the tracking # for the 2k rds I ordered back in January. At $80 per K, I should have bougth more.
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 4:10:36 PM EDT
I ordered mine in late Jan for the $55-whatever price. When they slipped my backorder date two weeks ago, the notice had the new price. I called to renew the backorder and ask about the price. The front-line support guy said that the price was now $71-ish and that's that. I called BS and said they accepted my backorder at the $55 and they can't change it. He said sorry, but that price was wrong, yada, yada, yada. I insisted that a supervisor call me back and when she did, she said they would honor the price and were looking into why the website continued to accept orders for the old price WELL after the price should have expired. So...I still await my two cans and I hope I don't have to fight for my price all over again.

I ordered mine on 12/23/05

I got a shipping notice today.... 3/9/06. We will see what happens.
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 4:39:01 PM EDT
Got that shipping notice today (3/9) also. Ordered mine on 12/26. When I showed my 12 yr old what a stompin good deal I got he asked me why I didn't order more. Made me feel about as good as when he showed me all those A's on his report card! Guess he is an ARFCOM'er at heart.
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 6:31:39 PM EDT
I had a similar experience as Teddy, where I ordered at $54, but when they bumped the backorder, it went up to $74 for the spam cans. I also had the same conversation with the customer service people,and eventually got it fixed with a supervisor. They told me that there had quite a few calls about the backorder price jump. The last date they had for shipping was 3/31, but today I received my shipping confirm. Hopefully the right price will be on the invoice.

I ordered 2 cans of the HP ammo on 1/08/06 @$52.22/can.
I received notice yesterday that they shipped on 3/09.
I was charged the original price of $52.22 each plus shipping.

Is the 5% ammo discount on top of the 10% club member discount, 15% total, or just 5%total discount.. For club members i mean..

i'm considering joining.

On ammo from SG, members get only 5% discount.

The big white Speedy Delivery truck dropped my order off today(he just dropped and ran, no signing- gotta love it!)!

I posted at the top of this page they had bumped it back to 3/20 but lo and behold 1280 showed up today. $114 for 1280 rds. comes out just shy of 9 cents a round. SWEET!

The cans were dented a bit but I'm sure the ammo is fine. I am a little reluctant to break one open because they are sealed up so nicely away from the elements. I'll have to eventually, though.

My lot is no. 669; and the date is 20/5/05 so it took just over 9 months to get to my front door from the factory in Russia.

Anyway just thought I'd let everyone know it has arrived!

Got my 3 tins today, 1920 rds for 141.66. I like this speedy delivery place, they get stuff here in one day and they are cheap as hell. Its only about $20 to ship the 3 tins.

Thinking back, i should have ordered 4 or 5 tins... oh well i still have 2 cases of wolf FMJ on backorder.

Well, my ordeal is over now too. Don't know if I can stomach another SG order.

Ordered two cans 12/29 and finally got the ship notice today 3/10.

There were no games on price ($54.xx/per can) so I'm glad for that - but there were about a dozen angry communications to SG about backorder notices SIX fuckin times. I just didn't know if I'd ever see the product!
It had been so long to ship that when time came for SG to bill my c/c they had to wait for me to give another c/c number cause that one I gave back in Dec. WAS ALREADY MAXED OUT FROM ORDERING AMMO ELSEWHERE So at the last minute a mad scramble still so I could get my order.
Wow....

Hey, howzzabout we go shootin???

Ordered mine also around first week of February and it is currently FINALLY enroute. Nothing sneaky by SG on the price (I double checked) and still getting it for the $61.00 or so I ordered it for.

F.A.S. Out
