Since the cost of bullets with "free" shipping is the same for someone who lives 2,000 miles away as for someone who lives 200 miles away, I suspect there is a certain amount of profit to be made on shipping from those customers who live close to the facility. Personally, I find the term "free shipping" somewhat deceptive when it's obvious that the shipping cost is built into the cost of the product. I would be much happier if companies used the term "shipping included" rather than "free shipping"; for me, it's really an ethical issue so I've made the decision not to purchase Berry's products.

Online, I would buy from http://www.missouribullet.com/ or http://www.pennbullets.com/
***snip***...If Berry's was the sole source for a specific product I absolutely needed to have, I would probably buy from them (albeit grudgingly). If there were alternative sources, even if they were somewhat more expensive, I would buy from those sources. Price isn't everything.
