Default Shorted on 100rd WWB's

I bought several hundred rounds of 9mm 100rd wwb ammo at wally world. My usual ritual is to unload these boxes and fill up the 50rd empty boxes I already have. One of the boxes only had 99rds in it, I paid for 100!

I guess the scales make mistakes sometimes, or just lazy boxers. No big deal to me, but if it happens 100 times.......they owe me a box!

I'm just curious enough to ask: Have you ever gotten 101 rounds in a box? I'd have to think rather than packaging error, one fell out in transport or unpacking. That's a lot of weight for a scale to miss with today's technology if that's the way that they package.

Hey goju, I've got a single 9mm floating around here somewhere if you want it. I know having that odd number is just killing you.

If you reload, you would not have that problem.

Goju will put his index finger thru his eye socket. I've seen him do it.

I would say that a WallyWorld worker, or a customer found a way to remove one round. If they do that to 100 boxes, then they will have a full box..:confused

Never, but in thousands of rounds this is the first shortage.

Nah, I went back and stole a roll of tp to make up the difference.

I'm securing my door now. At 99 zombies dead I'm doing pretty good, but if all else fails I'll throw the kids at them. Those zombies won't know what hit em!
