It looks to me like it was the dealer, not the manufacturer. Did you contact Silver Bear and talk to them directly? Maybe they would replace all of the ammo if their dealer (A&G) will not.

I have bought thousands of rounds from J&G, and I have made many purchases from them at the store in Prescott, AZ. I have never had anything but good service from them.

Just about any ammo sales, online, LGS or otherwise will be "all ammunition sales are final!" The fact that they took any boxes back at all shows they care. When you buy ammo online it is always "buyer beware."
Just my opinion; (and I suggest you ignore it) but when you buy cheap crap, it doesn't make sense to me that you get all in a huff when you recieve cheap crap.

J&G is a reputable dealer, and an old, longtime merchant of Prescott. I would expect them to warranty that ammo. I would not have dallied long with that CS rep, and would have demanded to speak to Brad, the owner, and I bet Brad would have taken care of it, rather than having a post like this on a public forum.

Since you are acquainted with Brad, it might be doing him a service to notify him of the problem. This is not good for him or the forum.

I was thinking about that. I would not think he would want this negative publicity for $20. I normally dont stick my nose into the business of others, and I do not know the OP. But if I were he, I would want to know this.

They have been a reputable business there since about 1950 or so...you are not far from there, they are out in the NE corner of town, by the Purina feed mill.

maybe it's just from being stored in a warehouse, I buy my ammo from the local gun store and never had any problem with steel case ammo being rusty.

I've seen rusty brass in a local store, too! I went to my local Bass Pro Shop on Fathers Day and found a box of .40S&W Remington Golden Saber that was almost as rusty as the Silver Bear rounds. Two months ago I found a box of Winchester "white box" in the same condition. You'd think that Bass Pro would have some quality control in place, but they are at the mercy of their distributors as well.

Brass wont rust. The Silver Bear is steel cased, and it will rust. Brass will Corrode, and if it has, then it has been wet. It is a distributor or shipping issue. Also, Brass does not corrode quickly, so it had to get wet and stay wet for a while........

In an "all ammo sales final" world, why would you expect them to refund on the unaffected/serviceable ammo? Life is short, shoot it and buy something else next time.
