That's why are society shouldn't depend on computers. Pretty scary when you can't fix a computer mistake. You could try to file a complaint with the better business bureau. Or at least threaten cabelas that your going to do it.

Here's my theory: I think what we have here is that people with more money than you or I are also buying all the ammo they can. These people have connections to the manufacturers and are being supplied first.

So if a guy who is buddies with the owner of Cabela's or Lake City or whichever manufacturer or supplier wants ammo - he gets it first.

The rest of us get what's left over and there are too many of us.

So if we wait a few months until this nonsense blows over these guys will liquidate their stockpiles and prices will come down. It will cost them more in storage to keep them.

After all, this is .223 ammo, not French wine - it doesn't get more valuable with age!

Just my .02.

I say demand twice the ammo you paid for, sell half at a good price and keep the rest and never go back to cabelas

I like you attitude TNARG. PanBaccha, yes I noticed that also. It appears thats just one of stunts to add confusion to the matter. I think they got this ammo, and are disperssing it elsewhere under a different name. Then right after whitehouse started meeting w/ NRA and walmart, is when they made the charges on my visa. The next thing to go on was the vice president saying the pres is gonna do something. During that time span, the shipment was delayed on being sent out. But before the pres talked, they sent out empty boxes. Probally what happened there, they got nervous and thought they better liquidate quick, then being they already have my money and know that, they sent empty shipment. Ever so conveniently at the same time eliminating my locked in price of the ammo. This theory is just my opinion. But this Cabela thing is bad business. A downright screw.

Suzy;
Used to go thru something similar at Sportsmans Guide.
U can get your money back, obviously. You cannot force them to sell you the ammo at the original price -- just won't happen.

Got a backordered shipment of 5.56 from Candelas myself a few weeks ago. They sold it with the ammo can but shipped the can separately. I bet their system is overloaded and they just cannot get the ammo in. I bet it is just a mistake. That said they should make good on the order.
