Berrys Bullets in short supply

Reloading

A sign of the times I guess.

I've got 4k 9mm 115gr coming. When I ordered, about a week ago, the website said 3 to 4 weeks before shipping.

Another 8k 147's came in two weeks ago to add to the pile but I read they are going to stop them and 200g swc until they catch back up.

I've been waiting a while for some .45, 230gn RN to come in. Hope this will level out in a couple of months. I'm just not sure this time. It seems different.

All of the reasonably priced bulk bullet makers are having trouble filling demand. PD and Zero don't have any what I want in stock. Hopefully they will by the time I need more.

It is certainly a weird feeling. I know that I have a several year supply of components on hand but I feel guilty about shooting any of them.

I expect that most of my shooting this year is going to be 22 and not as much of that as normal.

Yep, I went to the website yesterday and got the same message, so I ended up ordering 45's from Xtremebullets.

I ordered from Precision DeltaCorp about 3 weeks ago. Last weekend I emailed to determine if there was a problem, this was the response:

I am e-mailing to let you know we are behind at least 6 PLUS weeks on our shipping BULLETS and 2-3 weeks behind on shipping AMMUNITION.

I don't think they are the only bullet or component company having problems getting enough products out.

I placed and received an order from PowerBond very recently. No backorder. Great bullets. They might have some if looking for bullets.

No problem. Hope it works out. I have used about 3000 of them in the last few months in 10mm/.40 cal. Great bullets.

Everyone keeps telling me there is an ammo shortage, but I'm not having any problem finding .40 S&W.

Least there ain't no shortage on pliers. Lots of lead in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

The benefit of plated bullets in "the old days" were that they were CHEAPER than jacketed.

Now with that not being the case (Berry's are only slightly cheaper than say PD), I don't understand why people bother ?

I'm in the backorder line at PD. I should have some Montana Gold on the way but I read they were 25 days behind on shipping In Stock orders. Wow!

Looks like they've not only stopped selling bullets, but they've completely shut down their web store.
