Default Actual Powder Valley Leadtime?

Does anyone have any recent experience with Powder Valley? I got lucky today and found Ramshot Tac in stock and ordered a couple of jugs. Their site says current orders are shipping about a month out, based on recent experience is this accurate? Thanks -

That was my lead time for some 168SMKs. Their website indicates primer/powder shipments may be somewhat longer.

I ordered 3/14/13 and was invoiced 4/16/13. Shipment is in-route.

My most recent order arrived about a month ago. They were quoting 5 weeks when I ordered and I received it in about 4 weeks. I think they are slowly digging out, I doubt it will be any worse than their quote, likely a little better.

I placed an order 2 weeks ago for some 69gr SMK and nothing yet. 1 month sounds pretty accurate from what I hear.

I ordered some powder 10 days ago and was shocked to receive my invoice yesterday and a shipping notice today. I don't know if that was a fluke or a sign that things are improving.

Ordered bullets march 6th. Theyre supposed to arrive tomorrow. PV is the slowest supplier ive dealt with so far during ammogeddon. In the time since i ordered berrys bullets from powder valley, ive received three separate shipments from berrys directly.

Ignore the above. I traded an email with Powder Valley and figured out they shipped this order so quickly because they confused it with another order I had pending from a month ago. Sounds like the info on the website is current.

Ordered powder on 3/25 and waiting for shipping notice.I'm in no hurry so I don't mind the wait, but if something is sitting there in stock I would think they could figure out how to get it out faster especially since they don't charge you until it ships.

In stock only, they don't accept back orders right now.

You get an email when the order is placed and when it is released to be shipped (which on my last order was a few days before it actually shipped. I didn't check my CC, but I suspect your card is charged when the email happens, not when it actually goes on the brown truck).

I didn't know they had an email notification for product availability. How do you set it up? I could use that as for me, it is a daily check for product availability.

The only emails I get from PV is a confirmation of my order when I placed an order and then an email notification when it ships. The ship email is a little different nowadays as it seems to take a few days between when they release the order to shipping and charge your credit card and when I get the notice from the carrier that the product is on the truck. In days past, that was the same or next day, there seems to be a little longer delay now. I am keeping an eye on how long the delay actually is from charging the CC to when UPS tells me it is coming with this order.

I just got a notice from FedEx that the shipment is on its way. So it looks like they have a one day lag between charging your card and when it goes on the truck. I think that was an improvement over my last order of a least a day or two.

Ordered 3/25 and it looks like it was shipped today. I say that because my card was finally charged, but I've yet to receive a Shipment e-mail. Order was for an 8lbs of Longshot.
