I'm sure the cartridge machines at all the rimfire manufacturers are so screwed up that they spew hundreds of rounds of ammo on the floor, and their business model depends on someone sweeping up those loose rounds, then hand-packing them into new boxes in order to make a profit.

I'm not a big fan of WalMart but I think the idea that they sell "seconds" is BS. When you buy so much that you can dictate the wholesale price, you can sell the same product for less. They don't buy anything by the truck load. More like the train or ship load. Manufacturers have gone under via that business model and it's nothing new. Sears allegedly did it to Tecumseh engines decades ago. Cut the price or cancel our order. Tecumseh can't afford to cut the price, Sears cancels their contract, and Tecumseh goes under. Sears then buys the company at bankruptcy price and continues making "Tecumseh" engines.

Why rub his face in it?
A good gun shop is where you go for advice and things WM doesn't sell.

Has anyone ever told you your wife is ugly and you could have gotten a better one if you'd only shopped around more???
lol
