I guess I am not alone, I to ordered an "In Stock" barrel from them on 6 Feb. I got the "Thank You for your purchase" e-mail, but nothing since then. The barrel I ordered in no longer in stock on their website so I guess it will show up here sooner or later.
Got a call from Lester yesterday to tell me that the "in-stock" barrel I ordered on the 6th, was NOT in stock when they got to my order.
I left it on backorder, hopefully they will get another one in some time in the foreseeable future. I do appreciate the phone call vs another computer generated e-mail, guess they are doing the best they can.

I've had similar experiences lately with Midway, Lee Precision, and Sinclair. It's just the way things are right now everybody is effected, not much you can do but place your order and check on it after a week or so if you haven't heard anything.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
how long should a guy expect for an order to take to be filled? I ordered some powder a while back and was just curious if anyone knows about how long it is taking them to fill orders and get them out the door.
My apology goes out to the crew at Bruno's. I recieved my barrel that i ordered in a very timely manner and I have nothing to complain about. It is very frustrating dealing with this countries fiasco with all the talk of loses our rights and causing the whole shooting industry to go crazy. This is are hobby and for some a way of life and its a down right mess. A guy can't even hardly find powder, primers, brass, bullets, etc.
It's just crazy out there and there appears to be no end to it. My LGS is almost empty of everything. Shipping times are measured in weeks instead of hours and the gougers are busy pizzing everybody off. When this thing does finally settle down and it will, there are folks that I'll not ever do business with again. I've seen bricks of .22's going for as much as $60 and plain old primers at $75.... Absolute craziness.
I placed an order with them on 2/18 for brass for my .338 Lapua. Immediately got an email back with an order number, but they have yet to charge my credit card, and I have yet to get my brass. I've sent 3 emails and have called numerous times and just get a busy signal. I do understand it's crazy out there, as a purchaser of something though, it gets me a little edgy when I provide my credit card number over the internet, and nothing has happened yet.
