I had another thread where I was shorted 5 bullets in each box of 250 of 45acp, and they mailed me 10 bullets pretty quickly. I'll see how Xtreme handles it.
    Above is a partial quote from another thread.

    I think it is funny that people count bullets and or brass when they order them. Okay I do it as well. Why???? Not sure, every time I am right on or a few over. Never been shorted.

    I don't trust my counting so I use empty factory ammo trays, I always have a bunch on hand from recycling (garbage picking) at the range. I place 50 round ammo tray in a large plastic bowl I have and then dump the bullets or brass in until the try is full, shake it around, make sure every hole is full then grab another tray and repeat. As the bottom of the bowl gets full I scoop them out and dump them on top again. Makes the counting go real fast. Then I just count the trays an multiply by 50 and I have my count.

    Do you count your bullet and or brass orders? Why? Any tips on making the process quicker or easier?

    I just make note when I get down to the last 100. I'll count out the last 100 into a bin, and see what I'm looking at before I get there. I've had some pretty terrible luck here recently, with Berrys and with Xtreme now, I'm not sure why quality control would be so lacking in two completely separate companies. But, I paid for those bullets, by gum, and I want them.

    The most common type of ammo theft around here is in the large gun stores. Young people will take a few out of boxes which they can easily get out of the store without getting caught. Usually they are paid by criminals to do it. As a result gun stores are moving their stock behind the counter, which sucks, because I like being able to look it over before buying it. If they aren't checking them before shipping them then you'll come up short.

    Edit:
    Disregard this post. I didn't realize it was about loading your own. I'm a beginner.

    I do runs of 100 at a time. So, if I load 100 primers into my machine at a time, and have a box of 500 projectiles, by the time I do 5 sleeves of primers, I should break even or have some projectiles left over. Just about always have 3 to 5 bullets remaining.

    By the way, I just got 1,000 bullets from Missouri Bullets, I usually don't bother with those bullets because its ALWAYS 3-7 bullets over what I ordered, but I will definitely notice it if that changes.

    Try by weight. Weigh one unit then weigh the entire order and divide.

    I have a feeling that's how I ended up being shorted on my orders.
