i made a order on march 21 for a few things.. after looking at ther site for 3 weeks they had a dies for 4.95 i ordered 3 of them along with a lee cutter and 3 jaw chuck for a total of 38.90... after two weeks no sign or hair of it.. called 10 times no contact... emailed them and no responce... may 21 got an email from them saying its ready to ship and ther was a some discrepencies on the prices i emailed them back saying i ordered it at that price and after 2 months if you cant give it to me at the price i ordered it from cancle the order..your company seams to be at a great lose and should look for better help cause ther are many issues your people are having
here today a box shows up and bills me 152.90 to my card I call them up and they are like um uhh ok ok um yeah ok just send it back and we will send you a refund.. it should take 2-3 weeks to get you your money back….i told them sence its here I wish to get the items for what the price was when I placed the order.. no sorry we cant do that you can either keep them at that price or send them back for a full refund

I would call the credit card company and file a dispute with them. That way it gets put back on lock stock and barrel to prove their side. Which they dont have a leg to stand on since you have the print outs of what the cost should have been. So basically your credit card company will do a charge back.

Seems to me like they made a typo on the website and you're trying to take advantage of them. Most of those dies are about $40,aren't they? I think you're trying to cash in on their mistake. I,for one,will never do business with you.

So you never take advantage of a store's loss leader? Why do I doubt that? And how would you tell between a data entry error and a loss leader?

Please. Do you really think this was a loss leader? That's not a common strategy in the ammo and reloading world.

I will take back what I said and apologize if anyone comes forward with proof that LS&B intentionally priced or sold these at 4.95.
