Sounds odd. I'd immediately contact shipper and let then know. They might not do anything but the sooner the better.

I opened up a brick of Blazer 22lr and one of the boxes had been replace with a box of some old crap Remington. Bullets were all corroded.

I dumped a 550 round brick of .22lr, and found 575 rounds. Notice I wasn't missing any, I felt like I got a deal.

You COUNTED the rounds? Sounds like something George Costanza from Seinfeld would do if he was a gun owner.

It's not like I do it every time! I was young and curious, wondered how accurate their rounds count was. I've since learned that many such packages are measured by weight.
