Tacticool Ammo Shop

Postby 513resident » Sun Aug 14, 2022 2:50 pm

I found this site while browsing. They have some items which are notably cheaper than my usual source, but I know hardly anything about them. Has anyone here ever bought from them and are they trustworthy? Their webpage says thay have been in business 15 years, but they are new to me. Would just like to hear someone else confirm they are legit before I go typing in my CC info on their order form.

My first thought was "UGH I cannot believe they thought that name was a good idea."

Then I visited the site.

Then I ran a simple internet search with the terms "Tacticool Ammo Shop reviews" and there is an endless supply of posts calling them a blatant scam.

I went back, added a case of ammo to the cart and went to checkout and they offered lots of discount if I pay by Zelle or Bitcoin.

All of these are crimson red flags.

Looks like a scam site. I never clicked through far enough for them to show me a place to enter credit card... not that I ever would.
I like to swap brass... and I'm looking for .32 H&R Mag, .327 Fed Mag, .380 Auto and 10mm. If you have some and would like to swap for something else, send me a note!

Thanks Sevens! I was wondering why the case of ammo I was looking at was $100 cheaper than everyone elses! That was my red flag. Brings to mind the old saying - "If it sounds too good to be true..." Yeah, I should've googled reviews but didn't think of that until after I had posted. Based on what you've said...I think I'll pass. Again, Thanks!

EDIT: Glad I asked here. I looked at some of the reviews and chatter. TBH I'm surprised that their website is still up and running. I hope that by posting this thread, maybe others will see it and also avoid this place.

I like the https://ammoseek.com/ search engine for locating ammo with decent prices. Most vendors have user ratings linked right on the site and an indicator of how expensive or in some cases FREE shipping cost. (free shipping is becoming more rare but does occasionally exist)

Recently I was pointed to https://www.shootingbot.com/ for locating reloading supplies.

Hope you find those search engines helpful.

Here is another one of those slick looking but BOGUS online seller whose only payment options are Venmo and paypal. Hard to believe that the internet police don't take down these webpages :roll:

I'm hearing this has become much more frequent these days. I stick with only online sellers where I've done biz in the past, even if it costs a couple of bucks more (although shipping can really affect that overall order cost).

And here are two more I found while shopping for a particular cartridge. Interestingly, one I found through a link in an online article which was actually a well written and knowledegable article.

And yet another scammunition website. Check out their phone number "+123 5678 890" Seems they could have come up with a better phony number than that.
