    I have ordered some Hornady 30 cal bullets and they have been on back order from Cabela's for over 60 days. So I sent them an e-mail and ask what the status was on my order. Now they tell me they will be on "Back Order" until December 26th. What's up with Hornady and Cabela's?
    I am not hurting for hunting ammo, but I like to do some extra shooting to stay ready for the shot that counts. Anybody else having trouble getting reloading supplies? :thumb:

    I use grafs, midwayusa, Natchez shooters supply, and Mid South Shooters and I've gotten everything that I wanted so far.

    take a look at www.powdervalleyinc.com and see if the grain weight you want is in stock. at least they have a column showing in stock or out.

    This time of the year the popular bullets are harder to come by. I have a few boxes of Hornady .308's on the shelf is I can help out and have what you need.

    Winchester brass for a 7mm-08 is on backorder from 2 different place until February. I bought a couple of hundred RP the other day instead.

    I am trying to use up accumulated points from Cabela's. That is the reason I did not go to other business sources. I probably have enough to get by this hunting season. I got into a bottom drawer and found a box that had 55, .308 bullets in it. I'll get them loaded. If not I'll go to my .35 Rem.

    Thanks for the offers to help.

    Sort of has me wondering why Cabela's is unable to retail Hornady Bullets during the prime season and a three month wait during the hunting/shooting season. I ask this question to one of Cabela's sales rep on the phone and sort of got a lame duck reply. :thumb:

    This is why I bought 1,000 7mm bullets last year. When I get down to around 500 it's time to buy another 1,000.

    Midsouthshootersupply.com also tells you whether their reloading components are in stock or on back order before you place the order. Midwayusa.com also does this, but Midsouth usually has better prices.

  12. You may wish to check these folks, in the link below.
    See "Rifle Bullets", then "Hornady"
    Their AMAX bullets are very good IMHO, in both 168 and 178 gr. :cool:
