    I spoke with them yesterday. Bottom line is, they (like most others) are a bit over-whelmed. They said when the Wolf's hit they were expecting a "rush" but could not have anticipated how large the response was. If your card was charged, they'll be coming. My order was placed the 14th and got a ship notice today.

    I ordered on the 16th, my card was billed on the 24th, and my order on their website says "processing". So hopefully I'll get a ship notice in a couple of days, if things go like they went for D. Manley.

    Placed my order on the 14th (evening) - was in "recieved" mode until last Thursday. I inquired as to the date for shipping by email, and received a prompt response that my order was almost due up to be processed.

    Received an email within hours after that (don't know if my inquiry helped?) from UPS with the shipping info/due date. Primers arrived yesterday afternoon.

    First order I've dealt with them, but I'm thoroughly impressed and will use them again. Brings my "online store" list officially to MidwayUSA, NatchezSS, MidSouth, Grafs and Wideners and I'd generally recommend them all - only place I had problems was Midway and it was (eventually) resolved to my satisfaction.

    I'd inquire with them, but I'm pretty confident that if you got your order in while in-stock they'll honor it and based on when things sold out.... you should see yours within the week or so I'd bet!

    I don't think the website ever updates from processing. I placed three orders with them in the last six months. I got all three, but all of them still show "processing" on my account info/past order page. The stuff will come, its probably better that they spend their time shipping out orders, not updating the website.

    Buddy of mine just e-mailed me to let me know his order shipped today. They do state a delay in shipping on their site.

    Widener's just replied to my email inquiry about the order that I placed on July 16th. Looks like it won't ship until mid-next-week :(

    BTW, have any of you used Wolf primers? Any comments?

    OK guys, while I'm tapping my fingers waiting for mine to ship next week :(, I'd like to hear how the Wolfs are performing for those of you who have received them :cool:. Especially with respect to accuracy in small and large rifle primers.

    Thanks
