PRODUCT DEMAND NOTICE
Upate 9/24/21: Our production schedule continues to be driven by the receipt of our backordered components. Our focus continues to be on filling open orders as quickly as our supply chain will allow. Our In-Stock products are shipping within 3 business days and our On-Backorder products have delays ranging from 1 day to several months. For products such as 45/70, M2 Ball, and 6.5 Carcano, we will continue to load the largest batches that we can- given the size of our most recent component shipment(s). The bottleneck on 45/70 is our 400gr JSP and 300gr JHP projectiles. The bottleneck on M2 ball and 6.5 Carcano is cartridge cases. If you are not already aware, there is a signifcant shortage of primers and smokeless powder. We have found many alternative sources for both, and we will continue to develope and offer alternative recipes- as long as they meet our stringent performance standards.
Please keep in mind that ammunition components (cases, primers, powder, projectiles) are manufactured by larger OEMs and first priority goes to those same OEMs- then to distributors, then to individual (re)loaders and smaller OEMs such as Steinel. For the vast majority of our raw materials, we are still being allocated a 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.
As a result of the above, we are seeing delays of up to 10 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 6.5 Carcano remain our biggest bottlenecks.
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 increases. 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 these delays.
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 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 and supply chain shortages.
