The order confirmation said

21-4240 AMERICAN EAGLE RIFLE AMMO 223REM 55GR FMJ/200 @ $129.99 each

I don't like the looks of that 200 so I emailed and cancelled. Got a response right away and it's showing as cancelled in the order history.

Talking

Hey OP, I hope you don't misunderstand the situation. Thank you for posting and it was a good deal. The rest of us late to the post are just trying to figure out how to get in on it.

Here's what I've seen when this happens with Cabelas. However the deal is made, Cabelas ships it. What I tend to see happen is the deal quickly disappears or changes. Those that order after aren't always able to get in on the same deal. What stopped me was when I scrolled down and it said 200 rounds qty 1 and couldn't get information to the contrary. If I had seen 400 at any point I would have ordered and in my experience Cabelas delivers (sooner or later lol).

IMHO the 400 ran out, and now its 200 backorderable. Guess time will tell.

Frankly I wonder if someone messes with their system and we sometimes benefit from the good deals.

I don't blame you for being worried & cancelling since what you have there is totally different from my confirmation email this morning below. No FMJ/200 on mine. It says FMJ 2PK.

That is the same item number I have in my email confirmation. When I called to inquire, both reps said I ordered 200 despite me saying I have proof otherwise. UGH

Exactly. And maybe everybody will get 400, who knows, maybe it depends on which link you used. I just feel like I have enough .223 that it's not worth having keeping an eye on this backorder as yet another to do item on my list and stressing over it. If I was in the batch that ordered when it clearly said 400 I'd keep the order and proceed accordingly.

Part of my thinking is also that I have an open Cabelas backorder from November and another from a month or so ago as it is so my faith that they'll deliver the backorder while it's still a good price isn't that high. 6-7 weeks turns into 8 and by then who knows.

Just to add my experience, I called and was on hold for 11 minutes and the CS rep conformed its backordered for 2 200 packs. 400 total rounds.

If it doesn't arrive that way I will simple dispute the charge with my CC company.

Did you guys get the order in when it was still in stock or when they made back order an option? Don't know if I should cancel or let it ride. I'd expect something from their side canceling my order if it was a mistake.

About 10am they went Out of stock and there is a backorder list. They said they will go down the line and it should take about 2 weeks.

So after reading all this, I went back and looked at my email confirmation from earlier. While I was adding to cart and checking out it must have been still in-stock because I didn't see the red text, but as soon as the email confirmation came, it told me it was backordered for 8/25. When I went back to check the website, the backordered red text now showed. I guess I was right at the cusp of the cutoff. I hope I get 400 or else this will suck.

They still have 20 round boxes in stock for $9.99. Why would the sell 200 rounds for $129 when I can buy 10 packs of the 20 round boxes for $99.99 ? I hope I am not missing something here .

I also cancelled my order after I spoke to Cabela's customer service. He said without a doubt the deal was $129 for a 200 pack.

This is Cabela's confirmation page after I ordered. See how it says "CAL/GAUG: 223REM 55GR FMJ 2PK"?


But this is Cabela's confirmation e-mail. Now it says "AMERICAN EAGLE RIFLE AMMO 223REM 55GR FMJ/200 @ $129.99 each"


I hope for the sake of those Calgunners who ordered on this deal they will get their .223 at $0.32/round, but if there is a chance I may end up paying $0.65/round, I am bailing out. I'm just not a betting kind of guy...

Oh goodness what I mess.

I called back again to get to the bottom of this. Got a helpful rep who brought in a product specialist. Coincidentally the product specialist had been working on this particular issue all day. They came to the conclusion somebody messed up somewhere now they have 2 different SKU for this one item in their system.

In short, turns out I did order the 2 pack of 200 and I cancelled due to a dumb, lazy rep. Who knows, maybe I'll end up with 2 orders or none since I got 1 possible cancelled order and a new one on backorder. Funny eh?

Ok I was bored so I called & rep said my sku says "1 package contains 200 rounds of noncorosive FMJ......" and so "2PKG" would clearly mean 400 rounds total. I'm letting it ride.

My fellow Calgunners,

Here's a clearer picture of the screen shot i took from my iphone. The original link i used was from Golden Ballistics posting. The second link was from a fellow calgunner that was showing that you can still order 2/pack = 400 rounds but in a drop down list "Backorderable" 6-7 weeks as stated.

My experience with Cabelas had been excellent. They honored the items i ordered even if there is any discrepancy.

I will update this thread, as well as others who ordered this morning, take pictures of the stuff you received.

If it is not the 2/pack = 400 rounds, simply dispute the transaction with your credit card company.

Best,

SKULS

Dang, either it's a darn good deal (during these still turbulent times) or it's a crappy one. Glad I didn't put myself on the backorder list. Too much silliness.

Thanks SKULS.

From all the calling and verifying looks like Cabelas is aware of the problem. I'm leaning toward them honoring the 2PK for 400 rounds thing. I'm going to let it ride.

I now have a case open with cabelas as they can't locate any info on this. The rep who was nice said she couldn't find an answer and no one knew that she was asking but then went on how she couldn't even find the sku number or anything. This was of 7:45 tonight, Tuesday.

My original order email confirmation doesn't say anything regarding how many rounds.

I guess we will wait and see what they come back with.

I emailed customer service so I could get it in writing that its 400 they replied in an email that its 200, I called back saying a rep said 400 earlier, then I got an email saying 200 they repeated that it was a mistake and it is 200 and people will be contacted about it.

I got lucky to that my third rep got a product specialist who was 1 of 4 that had been working this issue all day. They were able to locate the SKU and positively identify that this pack was 2 x 200.

If anything, ask to talk to a product specialist!

I will ask to speak to a product specialist if they dot get back to me with a clear answer.

Even the customer service girl I was talking to was like this doesn't make any sense you could have just ordered 10 boxes at $8.49 for the same thing I'm paying $129.99 for. I said something just doesn't seem right.

The info in my email and account differ - namely the product SKU are different.
