Re: Anyone use bruno shooter supply

I was in there last week and they said they were 7 days behind on filling orders and weren't answering the phones, just trying to take care of the customers that had already ordered. I know they got in a big shipment of Hodgdon powder and ( Federal primers which they way OVER priced ) I picked up some Varget at 30 bucks a pound.

Re: Anyone use bruno shooter supply

There has been a tremendous amount of binge buying since the recent anti-gun proposals in Congress and some states became public. Powder Valley will take no backorders, and their out of stock items in components is about 75%. My son was at Cabelas on Saturday, and they had no loaded ammo nor components. Hornady says they have 3 shifts working and cannot keep up with demand.

Some folks have reported Brunos is surcharging orders without telling the customer. Watch closely their S&H charges. I have not ordered from them in a long time; cannot verify those comments.

I believe it will take a long time to get the component flow back to normal.

I always order supplies from them and they have been very good in the past.

I was just in Bruno's this morning. It took a while to check out as every warm body in that store is assembling and packing mail orders in all available floor and counter areas of the store.

I should have taken a few pictures to show how insane this whole thing has gotten.

I finally got an e-mail from Lester that my stuff would be shipping. I can understand the pressure from the present climate but not responding just increases the pressure.

Re: Anyone use bruno shooter supply

This is my first post and I have really enjoyed reading the posts from the members of this forum. I hope to contribute to the discussions. I understand how the crazy rush to buy ammo and reloading supplies can cause a backlog for online dealers. I do think that a little more communication about order status should be made a priority. I also I ordered 3 boxes of 175gr 308 SMK bullets from Bruno Shooter Supply on 2/18 and have not heard anything other than an email acknowledging my order. Their website listed them as being in stock when I ordered. It would help if I knew that Bruno actually had them in stock when I orderded and would ship them eventually or if my order was placed on back order. I also ordered 100 pieces of Laupa 308 brass from Butch's Reloading Supplies on the same day, Monday 2/18 and received them on Friday 2/22. That is great customer service. Maybe my Match Kings will ship soon, if they were indeed in stock when I ordered.

Re: Anyone use bruno shooter supply

Brunos will come through... A little while back i got frustrated and upset about not getting a confirmation email and not being able to get ahold of them at all. Within a week I recieved my order and I apoligized for my upset over the customer service and communication. They are busy as all hell.
