    It didn't help Powder Valley that they, along with most of Kansas, got hit by a couple pretty big snow storms. I think they had at least a full week where they couldn't ship anything out because UPS and FedEx wouldn't pick up shipments.

    MBC is still pretty far behind on a lot of 9mm stuff. A buddy of mine order 2k 9mm just over a month ago and he hasn't received a shipping email yet, I'm not sure if they send a shipping notice though.

    Placed an order with Natchez April 1st, order shipped April 3rd, scheduled to be delivered April 5th. Pretty good service & the UPS driver didn't get lost, products delivered today.

    I place an order with Missouri Bullet Co. 3/31/2013 for 1,500 9MM bullets & 500 .40 cal bullets. I will update when it arrives at my door.

    +1 on Gamaliel Shooting Supply. I ordered last Sunday and got my package Wednesday (3 days)!

    I have ordered from Rocky Mountain Reloading in the past with fast shipping but they are now showing 2 weeks delay. I will post back when the bullets arrive.

    My last order from ZCast took almost 5 weeks and their website is showing 5-6 weeks delay.

    Today, I placed an order with Brownell's - I'll post back when the package arrives.

    Just placed an order with Montana Gold Bullet - I'll post back when the package arrives.

    Still waiting for a shippping notice on the order I placed with PV for bullets.
    Placed the order on Mar. 6th, (showed in Stock) at the time, however they called a week later and informed me they were actually " Out of Stock" at that time.
    Don't know if I will ever get them.

    Floydster - I am in almost the same situation. Placed order on same day & probably for same bullets. The difference is that I called & could not get a straight answer. They told me the bullets "should be" allocated to my order. Who knows?

    Natchez:
    Orders on March 29th and April first, tracking shows one is likely to be here today, the other tomorrow.

    Affordable Brass & Bullets:
    Ordered the 1st, and tracking shows out for delivery today.

    Even though I got my tracking # from PV on the 29th of March, it is just getting here today. They are still my go to guys for powder and primers. I am glad I don't 'need' anything right now. Sure would like some unique though(I have tags in for it at several places, it will show eventually)

    I think when that happened they were trying to contact all the customers that placed orders and either offering to cancel orders or put them in line for a back order even though their website says they aren't accepting backorders.

    Is this what you guys are experiencing from PV? I placed an order on 3/6. I called & they told me it would be 4/5 (today) before that order is worked on. This notice (on their website) says they are only now working on non-powder orders from 2/28.

    Yes PV is running a month to process. The are a huge powder/primer retailer and they also take care of all MidwayUSA primer and powder orders.

    Calling them just takes someone away from their job shipping and packing and won't make things come any faster. Just sayin'.

    I won't call & bother them again. I used a direct link to order on 3/6 and missed the warning above.

    They are being upfront about their delays.

    Thanks

    I placed a powder order from PV on Feb. 24th, they processed the payment 4/1 or 4/2, and I received it about 2 hours ago. 39 days from ordering to receiving.

    Ordered 6lbs of various in-stock powder from Wideners on April 1st and it hasn't shipped yet. Website says 4-5 weeks behind but a previous shipment of primers shipped in a week or so. I will report back.

    11 Weeks and still no powder from Midway

    I ordered an 8# jug of TAC and 2 1# jugs of 2230 from Midway on 1/24/13. Of course they charged my credit card right away. Still have no idea when it will arrive. Anyone gotten any powder from Midway recently?

    I hope I get it for free if they exceed their 10-12 week lead time. The funny thing was there was no notice on their powder page at that time warning of 10-12 week backlogs.
