    Just because they look bad doesn't mean they won't perform properly. I recently shot up some rounds that I'd had laying around for 22 years. Not a failure in the lot.

    Properly stored ammunition will last a long, long time.

    Cosmetically I would not be too happy receiving those rounds.

    Functionally I agree, for the most part, that they would work.

    However, the appearance suggests that they were not stored properly so I would not want to use them for anything but the range.

    I guess the current supply and demand atmosphere will be clearing out a lot of old ammo in warehouses and storage lockers. My beef would be paying $30 for an old $10 box of ammo.

    Good to hear ATG stood behind the sale. I have limited dealings with them but they seemed to be above board.

    I agree that the ammo should be unaffected performance wise, however it's a customer satisfaction issue. A steak cooked well done will feed me, but if I ordered it medium rare, it's going back.

    I received my replacement rounds from them today, they look brand new! I will definitely do business with them again. No one around here even sells decent defense ammo, so I have to get it online. Plus, ammo-to-go seems to be the only dealer that can get the sacred Federal HST.

I guess they must have found some old ammo in the back of a warehouse somewhere and sold it as new ammo?!? I assume there is nothing wrong with shooting old ammo, but I was expecting brand new shiny bullets.
    Looks like they may want to change their name to...
    "Ammo That's Already Gone"

    I would not be happy with those pics if sold as new ammo.
