Well, after emailing them and them emailing me many times I am going to be getting reimbursed. But not only for the damaged rounds, there were actually 23 other rounds in 23 other boxes in the exact same spot that were damaged the same or worse. Federal called me today to ask exactly what I had in mind for compensation. I told them all thas is needed is to be compensated for the damaged rounds. They said that it is not all that "un"common for this to happen. My response to that was if there had been any bodily harm or firearm damage has been brought to their attention. He replied there was none to best of his knowledge.

I don't really see all of this over a dollars worth of ammunition. Ammo fired in a semi auto is often pushed back. Sub guns eat push bullets very often. My time is worth more than a .30 cent Ctg. Yes, I know they endangered you life and limb and they should pay.

You can roll your eyes all you want, but this all has to do with principle. It would not matter what product it was, nobody wants a defective product that is not usable.

Not hatin, but why would you shoot a hog with a .22?


I do think they should be replacing the damaged ammo and thanking you for your time, at least.

Because that is what gun I brought along. A .223 round is just as good as any other round. Especially with well placed shots.

Just a heads up on the outcome of the damaged rounds. Federal sent me a check for $40. Not to bad of a deal considering 25 rounds were damaged. Now I just wish that rounds were below a buck.

I'm glad they got you sorted out; i wish they had paid in ammo, as you may have to spend $10 in gas to replace that box of ammo.

Well after they replace them use a bullet puller and separate them. Then reload them.
