Re: RWS Primers due in spring for the US
Sorry for the delay on the questions regarding RWS products. I am in the same boat as other resellers and that is "without product". I have a small amount of .308 Match Brass for sale and a few primers, but am awaiting a big shipment that may or may not ever be here.
The good news is that security on containers from Germany is VERY good. They are checked by Americans in Germany and sealed, and most checked again over here. On top of that are boat captains that will refuse "at the dock" to carry a product for any reason at all. These include shipments of ammunition and primers that would accompany other ship products such as paint.
I know I have a very excited initial offering of products and am in the difficult position of saying I will have product when I will have product. On top of that, the products that I cannot have will soon have a price increase! (Guess the cost of turning away trucks with products doesn't help).
Unless notified on boards to the contrary, I will not plan on product to distribute till next shooting season (tactical, IBS, Pennsylvania 1000, etc.)
RWS has been caught short in this as well and is determined to get stock levels up in the US for the first time ever because of the difficulty.
It is good that the only ones to have to wait on these excellent products are the few at the top of their game as I know first hand how frustrating it is. On the other hand, if you were the Germans being held up by US inspectors at BOTH ends, you would not be very happy either.
We WILL get through this and those with the need and knowledge will get the products.
Thanx to all that just thought I was braindead. I may be, but that was not the problem this time!
