I ordered some primers and powder from Cabelas about a week ago. Scheduled shipment date is May 53rd. Anyone else order lately from them, are the dates they estimate about right?

I had several orders from Cabelas backordered. I usually received them earlier than expected. But ...that was before the ammo crunch was in full swing.

you will probably be lucky to get them earlier than expected. I would guess that you would get them a little later then you are supposed to with things being the way they are right now. I ordered more primers and stuff from Powder valley, which usually always gets their stuff out earlier than expected and they have not shipped yet either. I knew when I ordered that it was going to take a little time but has been about a month now. They told me they have stuff trickling in all the time right now but no big orders all at once. Good luck to you on primers right now though, very hard to get in at present time. Just give them a little while and you will be ok.

I ordered primers from Cabelas on April 16th -- they claimed 1-2 week backorder. I then got an email that they were expected in on April 28th.

I got another email on Friday telling me the expected arrival date is May 25th!! :cuss:

Sorry, but it don't look good to get your stuff on time.

I think you can expect them promptly on May 53rd. :)

I'm on BO with Cabela's for primers too. They accept BO's, don't charge the CC until shipped, so when I get them, I get them. Then I will place another order.

I buy a lot from Cabelas - both reloading and fishing gear. I find that their backorder dates are usually off in either direction. I have rarely found them to be close to the actual date.

Do they ship powder and primers together and can you request and will they ship all of them at the same time to avoid multiple hazmat charge?

I had stuff backordered and eventually got it...except for my LNL #45 shell plate...it was backordered and backordered, and I FINALLY got the ol' "sorry, we've cancelled the order since we can't get the damn thing" email. Otherwise, however, they seem fine.

I ordered 3K sp primers on 4/19. Just checked order status and they are now saying 2-3 week shipping date. That's the same thing they were saying when I placed the order. Fortunately, I don't need them at the moment but hopefully they will arrive just as I seat the last one that I have now.

A couple of guys on the SASS waire were talking about getting them at the expected date. I ordered a bunch myself, just recently. We'll see, I guess.

i am on backorder for cabelas for 600 rounds of 9mm and 1 box of 45acp. talk about taking advantage of the shortage...cabelas bulk 9mm still comes out to 27 bucks or so for 100 9mm (I remember paying 20 a box back b/f the election) and 45acp (which i paid 30 for b/f the election) is now i think around 40.99. Also, i went to my local cabelas in hazelwood, mo and they have remington 2 1/2, 6 1/2, and 7 1/2 primers in stock. The catch is you can only buy 500 of any one type. this means instead of paying 33.99 for the box of 1000, you are paying 4.99 for a packet, which adds up to 49.99 a box, a 15 dollar increase. I'm not sure if the purpose is to distribute primers to all or just to maximize profits. I guess either way, this is still better than not having primers...and deffinatley better than buying them off gunbroker.

Me too.. .223 ammo and like everyone else, small primers...

I guess I am one of the lucky few. My order for primers was ahead of schedule, middle of May. And my powder order was delivered today, not the 11th so I can't complain. Good luck to everyone else.:banghead:

I have alot (well not really that much)of primers and powder on backorder with Cabelas. The powder has been shipping on time and earlier than expected, but all of my primers are still on backorder. They have not gone past the expected delivery date yet. I expect that they will though, we will see. All of the following were ordered on 4/16/2009. Benchmark shipped 5/08/09, H4895 & IMR 4064 Shipped 4/22/09 and H335 4/28/09. Still have CCI and Federal LR,SR,LP,LPM,SP,SPM primers and about 8 or so pounds of assorted powders still on back order. I also have 1000 of CCI #41's and 1000 #34's on order but no news on those. (different company) :rolleyes:

My primers were "expected in" yesterday---uh huh.

Update: I just got a new email today saying the primers were now expected in June-teenth.

Order large pistol primers back in April. Said 1 to 2 weeks delivery when I ordered. I called today and they informed me the new expected date for primer shipment is June 20th. I sure hope that doesn't slip when June gets here. This is getting out of control.

From the discussions I've had with Cabela's, they only get an estimated ship date from the Mfr., and it usually slips from there.
But at least, they don't hit your card until they ship, and they will ship each item separately as they get them regardless of what you paid for shipping.

With Midway (I buy from them and like them too), but they ship all items together. So if you order an item on the shelf along with a backordered item, they hold the shipment until they get the backorderd item. Saves them shipping cost, but not as customer oriented as Cabela's.

To show you how short items are, I put in an email Reminder Notice for some brass with Midway. I got the notice today that the brass came in. When I called 2 minutes later, they said all the received brass had already been shipped. So if you want something, place the order so that you will be queued in line when it arrives - first in, first out!

I have had 1K small pistol and 1K small rifle primers on order since late February, also some Sierra .224 bullets.
Constant updates pushed the date back into late May.
Now I had to call them as they were on backorder so long, the order risked being cancelled.
I confirmed that yes, I want those little buggers. Latest update is June 20th.
Suurrrre.
I placed an order with Grafs consisting of other primers and some powder, sounds like it may be in and ready to ship. Placed that order in early April.
That's much better, in my book.

Midway ships in stock items immediately and backordered items when they come in. They charge a separate shipping charge for backordered items

I just got bumped by Cabelas for the third time. My mid-April order has now been pushed to mid-June.

Like I said earlier, I'm in the same boat. What was one to two weeks is now months. I was told June 20. Frustrating, but what are you going to do but hope the shortage gets caught up soon.

Small pistol primers apparently showed up this week at Cabelas.
My order was just shipped. Order originally placed in late February.
No word on Small rifle primers.

wow stonecoldy. Good deal. I just wish they would get in large pistol primers. I guess going by your order, I only have a couple months more to wait on that 1 to 2 week order. :)

Dead Thread revival....

Just got another email from Cabella's today that my April 3 order for small pistol and small rifle primers was delayed AGAIN now end of June...so they say this time.

Is anyone getting these from Cabella's?

What's been the waiting time at the other major sites?

Nothing yet. I ordered Win Large pistol primers the middle of April and contacted them last week and they said June 20. Just got the same email today now saying June 30. Looks like we'll be lucky to get them some time this summer at this rate.

The Cabelas thing is interesting because I'm starting to see local shops getting primers in here and there. Not huge amounts but they are coming in. If the small shops are getting some, you would think the large outfits like Cabelas or Powder Valley would be also and filling orders. Maybe they are, but we aren't hearing about them here.

No primers yet but I did get my set of 380 dies today. I ordered them the middle of March. But like ya'll, the primers just keep getting pushed back.:scrutiny:

They must be on an email terror because I got another email this morning stating basically the same thing about the backorder that I got yesterday. This email asked if you don't want your order to please call and cancel. Same date of 6-30 though.

Same here. ordered 4-24. expected delivery currently 6-30. Regarding Midway USA, as stated above, they ship when an item is in stock. I emailed and told them they could hold items till all came in, they said no can do. Fortunately the reloading supplies I ordered should deliver tomorrow. Guess I have plenty of time to set up my press.:rolleyes:
