That's bullshit. Somebody could have carried them on foot quicker than that.
It was actually through a big online retailer. Not sure if I should name them. (Larry's place. Shipped from MO though) Obviously I had emailed them (Larry) a few times and each time was told that they were 6-8 weeks out, then 10-12, 12-14 etc. The last convo I had with them they offered to cancel the order as it had taken so long, etc. I told them as long as the order was still there and not lost in the shuffle somewhere I would wait and to be honest, I had kind of forgot about it. When I saw the mailman struggling I thought " oh shit, I know what that must be", lol.

One more order from Blue thats like a month old so far and an order from a brass manufacturer thats a couple weeks old at this point with half of it that got backordered because I had to mail out a signed copy of my LTC and by the time it got there, half the order was oos.

In stock if you need it.
Plenty of others as well

My last order from Xtreme was extremely fast , not to say that they have ever taken long. I like their product and I don't think any order I've placed with them has taken any longer than a week to arrive.

X-treme very speedy right now...ordered April 16th, shipped April 19th, tracking shows due at my door on Monday.
My most recent purchase from Xtreme to exactly a week to reach my door , they have been consistent through all of this nonsense , I don't even bother looking elsewhere for bullets.

Got a box of 750 each Frontier plated 357 158 grain arriving Monday according to tracking online. Placed the order on April 19.....arrival April 26. 1 week.

Price was "ok" considering. $106 including shipping so 14 cents each. I've done way better with other vendors pre 2020 bs but ill take what I can get. These should make some decent 38 special pinker ammo.
