Default How long have you guys been waiting?

I ordered 1k rounds of 556 green tip on November 9th that was supposed to ship in December. Will be going on 3 months here pretty quick and I still have not received it. Just curious if anyone else that ordered around this time frame has received it yet? I ordered it when it was still low priced. I am just wondering if I am getting pushed aside to fill the now higher priced ammo orders. I have heard of this happening elsewhere, just like the price gouging of guns where places are pulling their guns from the shelves and putting them on gunbroker for 4 times the price. Hopefully this isnt the case.

I'm in about the same boat. 2-3 months and no word, just "out of stock" message electronically. Haven't checked to see if they billed my credit card, but they probably did. If I rescind the order, might have to wait in the line all over again.

Same here... It's been about 3 months since I placed the order. CC was charged but still waiting. Hopefully VM isn't pushing our orders back to push out the premium orders. However a rep did tell me that my order will ship early March.

I need to call them. This is absolutely ridiculous. I placed my order November 9th, so almost 4 months now. The funny thing is that there are people that ordered literally a few days before me and got theirs in 2 months. I don't see how that happens, unless our orders are getting pushed back to fill the "premium priced" orders.

Hey Guys,

I want to first off apologize for the delay. The contracting of this ammunition fell at a very bad time in the market and we have been plagued by delays and price increases at every step for one reason or another. The availability of components went from plentiful to 0 quicker than anyone expected. But we have been working night and day securing components to continue to build and ship our ammunition.

We absolutely are not shipping any new orders before old orders. Prices have increased because costs have skyrocketed, but as always, we will be fulfilling orders in the order received.

I want to thank all Calgunners again for their patience- I know how much of PITA it is to wait because frankly, we have been in the same boat. But we are almost there- I will post updates here as the components we are having manufactured come in and ammunition ships out.

Thank you all again for your time and understanding-
Mike

Any updates? we are halfway through March now and mine is still "Awaiting Fulfillment". I am past the 4 month mark now. I have been able to obtain primers, powder, and brass in the past few weeks so I figured you guys probably would too. Just checking the status.

Thanks

I spoke to a rep from VM and the rep said that shipment of components have been delayed, again.. Has anyone received their order yet? Or have any other updates as to why we've been waiting so dang long?

At least they discontinued pre orders on their .223/5.56. It would be super shady if they were taking pre orders while unable to ship our 4-5 month old orders.

Hey ArmyGuy,
Good news. After months of sourcing, we are finally in possession of almost all the components required. We are currently only waiting on the bullets which are in production. Once those touch down, we will be shipping them out as fast as possible. I cannot express how much I appreciate the patience our Calgunners have shown; the shortages were far worse than anyone anticipated but we are almost there.

Again, I apologize for the long wait- I will give an update here once we start shipping.

Thanks again,
Mike

Half a year wait time for ammo. Must be some sort of record.

I'm new to this forum but just wondering why the ammo has scarcity in California & on line stores. Recently went to Las Vegas on a business trip & bought 5.56 ammo & the store had plenty of the same stuff.

Same goes for guns especially AR 15s. I didn't have luck at online stores but there I saw plenty of them on sale!

Just found this thread. I've been waiting for my order since 1/5/13. In fairness, Mike has offered to refund my money, but at this point, I'll wait a bit longer and see if they start shipping soon like they say.

Cancel and order from someone like SGammo.com. I put in an order a week and a half ago, and already have it in hand. Split 1k of PMC with my bro-in-law for $379 per 1k.

Thanks WalkingDead-
We are running most of what we can right now and will fulfilling orders in the order received. At the risk of sounding disingenuous by repetition, I want to say one last time how much we appreciate the the patience you all have shown.

Well happy day...After 8 months of waiting, my order has finally shipped. I got the email notification a bit ago. No tracking number yet but I'm sure it will be following shortly.
