I just ordered a number of items from Powder Valley to include 32lbs powder, 4000 primers, and a few thousand bullets. Just about everything was out of stock. I told them to ship once everything arrived to save me shipping and hazmat fees. How long will I need to wait for my goodies?

Also, I ordered 5000 each of SP, LP, SR, LR CCI primers from Grafs and gave them the same instructions. Does anyone have a prediction on my wait time? Grafs said CCI is about 30-90 days behind.

I placed a slightly smaller order about 3 months ago...same deal...nothing in stock.

After a month I gave up and changed everything to stuff they had. I was able to find primers and some bullets locally, and I just decided that I should make do with what they had in stock.

Vihta Vuori powder costs a bit more, but it's really nice and they have almost the full line in stock.

You might be waiting a few months at least.

I received some revolver bullets the other day that had been on backorder since April. Have several other orders still pending since May and June.

Patience, such items right now may take even LONGER than the 30-90. I ordered some primers in March, recieved them in August. It just takes a while.

2010 maybe 2011 depending on what legislation comes down the pike. Unfortunately I am not kidding. I have had an order in with Grafs for 5000k WSPP since winter this year. Emailed them about it about a month ago and they said they were still filling orders from 2008.

Depending on which bullets you are after, I sell many pistol calibers in several grains and I ship the next day. I dont sell powder or primers so you will have to go elsewhere for them. My website is www.rmrbullets.com (http://www.rmrbullets.com)

Things seem to be coming in drips and drabs. Traveling around for work, I have been able to slowly accumulate what I want checking stores in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, etc. It has been an interesting experience, at least.

I just got an invoice that says that they will be shipping the 2000 .40 FMJ Zero and 2000 .45 FMJ Zero bullets that I ordered. That did not take as long as I expected. I am still waiting for a lot more though.

Yeah your hold up is going to be primers and powder. An encouraging sign was I was at our local bass pro shop and they had a lot of powder on hand, compared to nothing on the shelves 2 months ago. They had a lot of dies and the store clerk said they had some primers in limited quantities. I am stocked so I passed. I did notice that they have gotten pretty proud of their product. I bought 4lbs of Red Dot form them 4 months ago at $59, they were at $69 today.

I'm in the same boat, just ordered 16 lbs of powder and 2000 primers earlier today.

Time to sit back and wait :cool:

I told them to ship once everything arrived to save me shipping and hazmat fees. How long will I need to wait for my goodies?

Not sure how Powder Valley does it, but Cabela's charges ONE hazmat fee per order, not per shipment.

I had a backorder of CCI SP primers on order with Grafs since mid-April. The FedEx guy just dropped them off this morning. That will give you a gauge of how long backorders are taking for some popular brands of primers.
