We're in the process of cleaning up our caliber list and will be making changes to some SKUs and discontinuing others over the next few weeks (February 2023).
Note: "Discontinued" does not affect your existing assets. It only affects future purchases. You will still be able to buy up partial boxes (on some) to top them off - this option will be available when you go to ship and NOT via the "buy" button - which is now greyed out.
Stuff You Should Know...
Our goal is to get down to a core list of 60 SKUs. We'll be discontinuing about 30 SKUs and folding others into primary SKUs (removing some of the variations). There will also be some name changes. Scroll down to see more detailed lists.
1. Set your budget percentage to zero on any discontinued SKUs (you'll see the [Discontinued] label on the caliber name).
2. Plan on what you want to do with partials - either sell off or buy up in the future when you ship.
If you have any SKUs that are being discontinued, you'll see the [Discontinued] label next to the caliber name in your crate. This means that our system is no longer automatically buying that SKU for you - even if you have budget allocated toward it, that budgeted amount will just go back into your Wallet. You will want to set the budget for all discontinued SKUs at ZERO and reallocate the percentage to other calibers. You can also remove it from AutoBuy by selecting the red X to the right of the discontinued SKU.
If a SKU is has been discontinued in Round 2, you will be able to round up any partial boxes when you ship (this is not an option for SKUs we discontinued in Round 1). A popup screen will ask you if you want to round up to the next box. This way you don't have to leave any partials behind. If you don't want to buy up, you can also sell back any partials instead. It is up to you how you want to clean those up. Either way, you probably don't want partials sitting in your inventory forever.

SKUs that are being Modified or Condensed
In addition to the above-discontinued list. We're consolidating some SKUs and modifying the scope of others. Here is that list with the old SKU on the left and the new one on the right.
|OLD SKU||Change Type||NEW SKU|
|223 / 556 Practice No Green Tip||Merge||223 / 556 Practice|
|22 LR High Velocity Practice||Merge||22 LR Varmint and Small Game Hunting|
|9mm Self Defense No +P||Merge||9mm Self Defense|
|45 ACP Self Defense No +P||Merge||45 ACP Self Defense|
|38 Special Self Defense No +P||Merge||38 Special Self Defense|
556 Green Tip Ammunition - We're now no longer carrying any steel penetrator 5.56 ammunition because so many people are unable to use it on their range or on steel targets. So from now on every 223/556 shipment will be "No Green Tip". We're merging these two SKUs together.
22LR High Velocity - Since so much Varmint Small Game ammo is ALSO High Velocity, we'll be merging these two SKUs into one called 22 LR High Velocity / Hunting
9mm and 45 ACP +P Ammunition - We're going to focus only on the non-+P version of these calibers and merge the SKUs once our stock of +P ammo has been entirely shipped.
38 Special No +P - This is the opposite case and we will be merging our +P into our No +P because only 10% of customers that have 38 Special opt for Non +P. Also, since the vast majority of 38 Special Self Defense is +P that is what we'll be keeping.
Hunting Caliber Name and Bullet Scope Changes
Hunting calibers will get broader scope instead of a narrowly defined range of "medium game" or "large game". The truth is that with most hunting bullets, the size of game can be more dependent on range than bullet grain weight. Then there are grain weights that fall in the middle of typical "medium game" or "large game". It is up to the individual hunter what they use the bullet for and whether it will work for their application. Our goal will be to source quality hunting rounds at a good price regardless of bullet weight or the game listed on the box.
|Original Name||Type of Change||New Name|
|22 LR Varmint and Small Game Hunting||Name||22 LR High Velocity / Hunting|
|223 / 556 Varmint and Small Game Hunting||Name / Scope||223 / 556 Hunting|
