Freedom Munitions (tried to order)

A little disappointed (well, more than a little now)!

I have sent my email to join their eBlast several times. I've still not gotten my code for free shipping. I've had the window open with my items in my cart since yesterday.

Today, still no email with a code and now my items are SOLD OUT!


Sent them an email but really not sure I want to buy there now. There are many people here that talk so highly of them but I'm a stickler for things like this and after the 2nd day of not being able to order, hmmm...

They have just released a new website and maybe everything is a little screwed up right now. They are very receptive to phone calls, give them a call and explain what is going on. Give them a little time, they are worth it.

Also, current special is all orders over $99 receive free shipping, so you don't need a code.

If the product you want is sold out, try looking at different quantities. They may be sold out of 500 count boxes, but still have several 250 count boxes. The price per round doesn't change, IIRC.

My last two orders for ammo have been through SGAmmo.
Good prices and fast delivery

I have to admit, I think they over-engineered the website. I preferred the old one better. Much easier to understand and navigate, YMMV.

I've had an account with FM for a long time. I just tried logging in to their website. Didn't work. The new website is kicking their butt. Someone made a mistake and wasted a bunch of money.

Don't let the website deter you from trying their ammo. Many of us here use it by the thousands of rounds.

Armslist had issues when they first launched their new website and those issues got resolved so I'm sure FM will do the same. Maybe that's why they are offering free shipping on orders over $99. My 1250 rounds came last week. The boxes were gray and they work just as good as always.

Wow, I just checked out Freedom Munitions new website and while it looks good it sucks to navigate and I can't access my account. I wrote to customer service explaining that their new format wouldn't allow me to access my account and wasn't user friendly. Maybe if some of you would drop them a line and let them know what you think it would help motivate them to get it fixed.

Click here to send them an email.

I was just on their site and couldn't log in either. Also noticed prices have gone up. They seem to be getting "slammed" on their Facebook page for the horrible launch of their new website and the price increases. I hope they get it all fixed ASAP...especially the pricing or my recent first order will be my last order. Note: with the new pricing, I can get the comparable ammo from my LGS at similar cost and not have to wait on delivery. Competition is a beautiful thing. Just saying...
