    Buffalo Bore Short Barrell .357

    Has any one bought any of this recently? I just got a box in the mail from Cabela's today and while the box seems identical to what's pictured in the BB website the bullet design is not. The bullet design on the website looks to be a complete jacket hollow point. The bullet that I got is a copper jacketed hollow point with a lead tip. I'm wondering if maybe the box was right but had the wrong ammo in it or maybe if the picture on the web site is wrong. I e-mailed the company buy apparently they guy who could answer the question is on a hunting trip until mid September. By that time I doubt Cabela's will take the ammo back.

    I don't have the short barrel, I have/use the heavy 125s and they are as pictured on their site.

    Can you post a pic? Did you order the Barnes bullet or other? What weight?

    If you are concerned, I would send them back, you can always reorder.

    That def. is not the Speer that is shown here:

    Tactical Short Barrel Lower Recoil Low Flash 357 Magnum Pistol & Handgun Ammunition

    Looks to me like a nosler bullet as shown here:

    I would wait till Tim gets back, and I would ask him if he would be willing to swap it out for you, cause there ain't no way in Hades Cabelas will.

    Believe it or not Cabela's is actually sending me a replacement box and letting me keep the original at no cost.... I know...I'm amazed! I expected a fight when I called them but they were actually quite pleasant and apologetic!

    Sure nothing wrong with that. I have never had a problem with Cabelas.

    Interesting thread I found using a little google-fu

    Buffalo Bore boasts bogus bullets? - TheFiringLine Forums

    Buffalo Bore has been known to subsitute bullets made by Montana Bullet company in place of Speer Gold Dots. Thats why I only use Double Tap Ammo. On any given day you can call and talk to Mike McNett the owner. You get exactly what is advertised.

    Umm....Mike has been known to do the same thing. There was actually quite a to do over on the Glock Talk "10 Ring" Sub-Forum about this a while back.

    When he did, it was advertised as Montana Gold. I have the box. Not Gold Dot. And , I dont frequent Glock Talk, dont care much for'em.
    Much misinfo passed on the inet. Umm....when you have the box with the wrong bullets, thats pretty good proof and not just talk.

    Im annoyed mainly because there is a pretty big difference. I mean seriously...the bullet type isn't even the same... JHP VS SJHP are totally different characteristics... I think that's my last box of ammo from BB.

    If it didnt happen so often with them, one might discount it as a mistake. But they are getting quite a habit going on with it.

    Considering that Mike is a Moderator on the sub forum I mentioned above, you may want to check out that sub forum more often. Do agree with you about the mis-information/opinions over there. A lot of the same stuff goes on here too though.

    Dang it, guess I'm going double tap for my next ammo order...
    When I saw that pic I went "Hey, those look like Federal SJHP!"
    I know not what this "overkill" means.
