PRODUCT DEMAND NOTICE
Upate 6/14/21: While the ammunition industry is beginning to show signs of recovery from the 2020 shortage, significant strains remain throughout the supply chain. This may not be readily apparent as select cartridges begin showing up at your local FFL and some websites. Please keep in mind that ammunition components (cases, primers, powder, projectiles) must be produced for smaller OEMs and individual (re)loaders, then make their way through distributors before we can receive them for our production. Herein lies the largest bottlenecks. For the vast majority of our raw materials, we have been allocated a small fraction of the components that we have on back-order. Until distributors’ supplies can exceed or meet their demand, we must continue to wait on these components. Beginning in April 2020, some suppliers have been able to send us small, but regular partial shipments while other suppliers have sent full shipments once available.
As a result of the above, we are seeing delays of up to 8 months on some loads and cannot provide ETAs until our suppliers and OEMs have better visibility over their respective delivery and production schedules. 45/70, M2 Ball, and 500 Auto Max remain our biggest bottlenecks due to brass supply.
Please note that our website processes your transaction at checkout- not at product shipment. This means that we will not cancel your back-order to take advantage of pricing changes. We will however charge a 3% CC processing fee on refunds issued for orders placed after 12/10/2020. This is the date by which this site contained numerous warnings of our delays.
We will continue to load all cartridges as components become available from manufacturers and/or their distributors. You will be sent an automated shipping confirmation and tracking number on the evening that UPS scans your package(s) at our local terminal. From an admin standpoint, we are unable to update every product page, in real-time, for availability at this time.
If you email for a status update, please understand that we may not be able to respond in a timely manner. If you received an order confirmation, your order was received and will be shipped as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your interest and patience during this period of unprecedented demand.
