Watch out when you buy ammo from Academy. I bought what I thought was two boxes of .243 but they turned out to be 30-30.
Glad I caught it before I tried to load up my rifle.

I tried to take them back to a different Academy. The front door person said go to the hunting section and they will give me two replacement boxes. Then the hunting section guys said they cannot do that and then said get in line and get a refund. Well the line had a 75 people in it so I said forget that and went home. I'll try again when there are not so many people there.

Someone prob swapped the more expensive ammo to the cheaper box to save a few bucks. Idiots walk amongst us.

I went to Academy's web site and both the 30-30 & .243 sell for $21.99 for 20 rounds.
Probably a Monarch screw up confused2

The local Academy had these in stock yesterday as well. Just started seeing .243 for the first time in over a year. DIdnt buy as I recently secured enough to last me a long time through the family network.

It wasn't a factory screw up, I'll tell you that. I have several friends who own factories. The system won't mix and match in the middle of a run, and they shouldn't even fit in the same sized box. That's a shelf swapper at work!!

Makes you wonder where the Monarch 243 ammo went? Into a cheaper box? Is there such a thing?

Monarch uses PPU brass which that is head stamped. They cost the same, so it make zero sense to switch them. Monarch screw up all the way. I got some Miller Lite the other day and it had High Life in it.
