    has anyone got any idea how long Hornady will take to ship my free bullets? its been about 10 or 12 weeks that the check cleared the bank for the shipping charge and no sign of anything from them.

    It took almost 3 months for me to get mine. I'd forgotten all about the incentive until they showed up on my doorstep.

    It would be nice if Hornady sent an e-mail with a delivery date or even a postcard, after all I just dropped a years worth of scrimping and saving (about a grand) on their press & supplies.

    Seems to depend on which bullet you select. I've done 4 or 5 rebates with them. Some only took a couple of weeks. The 1,000 (when the offer was still 1,000) .308 150gr FMJ's from my LNL AP took about 5 months.

    I sent in a rebate offer for a set of dies and it took 3 weeks (223 bullets). I sent in another rebate two weeks ago and got a e-mail a few days later saying my order was being processed ( 308 bullets).

    My 1,000 .45 185gr XTPs showed up in only about 8 weeks, and only a couple of weeks at the most after the check cleared. The press was ordered at the end of December 09 and I got the bullets some time in February I think.

    I waited about 10 weeks heard nothing. Called the 800 number listed on the rebate information. Customer service said they hadn't made a run of those bullets yet and if I wanted the 139gr boattails in 7mm I would have to wait, but they could substitute another 139gr 7mm bullet and ship immediately. I said ok sounds great. I had them in about four days. if you're tired of waiting make the call their customer service is great. 1-800-338-3220

    Actually, I don't think Hornady owes any of us that level of catering. Afterall, we are getting free stuff.

    My 1000 44 cal 200 gr XTP's took about 6 weeks from when I threw the check in the mail. As above, I do suspect that delivery varies by what is selected.

    I would call the # posted as well. They let me choose from anything they had in stock. I originally selected .45 SWC and ended up with more XTP's which was fine for me. They will let you choose any caliber really.

    I have had them ship from a few weeks to a few months. I think they wait to send them out in bataches?

    I wouldn't call it catering I'd call it basic customer service with the money already spent on the press. the bullets don't make a dent in Hornady's profit margins.

    It took about 5 or 6 months to get mine. (.30 rifle bullets, I think it was 1000 of 'em) This was a year and a half ago.

    Yep, they changed it for 2010. I got wind that the change was coming and that's why I rushed my order in at the end of the year.
