When something sounds too good to be true, the first thing I think of is "scam".

The font looks phony to me.

I'm thinking scam.....

Must be. They copied and pasted the product description from targetsportsusa.com.

Thank you.

I could "smell it".

You proved it.  

Not sure what else to do, or who to notify.

The price is legit, TargetSports has it for that price but the web site looks wonky. Federal’s web site is Federal Ammunition not Ammunitions. 
They mention TargetSports in the verbiage. Why buy from them if it is available from a known good vendor?

It's not available from any known good vendor I checked out, so that's why my brother was interested.

Maybe there could be a "sticky thread" here for scams?  Maybe there is one, and I'm just not aware of it.....  Thanks.

Also, they say "free shipping" on bulk ammo. I put 20 boxes in my cart and moved to order just as a test, the final straw was there was no free shiping, it was $25 and Zelle or two specified forms of crypto currency only acceptable forms of payment. No physical contact info as to location and phone number, just an email form to fill out for contact that would in all probability, would go nowhere. All red flags to this forum poster!

I wish the Federal Gold Medal prices were legit but would NOT be willing to give this website the benefit of the doubt.
