I called them regarding adding to my order and during our conversation, they said that the delay is with FedEx or UPS. They said they will only take a certain amount of Hazmat items per truck (I think it was 750 lbs, but don't quote me). He said in one day he had 7000lbs of powder orders placed.
First thought from most would be why not send more trucks to their place, but maybe that is not an option.

He said my order should be on the truck today or tomorrow, so we'll see. Can't find RL19 anywhere locally, so I don't have a choice.

    Problem is, that is more "logistics" than UPS can handle.

    My main question is for some of these companies that have excessive orders why not hire more people? It cannot be hard to find someone that:

    A. Needs a Job
    B. That can count
    C. That can realize they need to match the serial, product or whatever number that is on the picklist.

    To me this is like throwing money and customers out the window. If these smaller companies could serve their customers that day or within 2-3 days having their orders ready to ship they would have a tremendous customer and sales base. It also seems like the places that have the sevral weeks til shipping orders are the ones that are getting majority of the reloading supplies everyone needs so boost your capacity. I realize eventually it will calm down but strike while the kettle is hot.

    After reading the post prior to mine I guess no matter how many workers you have if carriers can only ship certain amounts then you will be screwed. So much for my plan.

    But I guess they could still do it for the non-hazmat stuff.

    Chuck's reloading had some 300RUM brass not Nosler brass. I bought around 300-400 RUM brass from him before and can't beat the price. Hope that helps out.
