    Does anyone know what the processing time is running for orders from wideners? I ordered some 40 cal bullets on 12/30 and my order still lists as processing. This isn't a big deal, but on the slow side, Im just curious if this is average, slow, order if I should expect a much longer wait.

    I will admit I am alittle anxious to get them, I have a bunch of brass that has been all prepped, all they need is powder and bullets and I am good to go.

    When I ordered 11k primers it shipped in about a week. I would not say they are fast. Just call and ask, they could be running behind because of the Holidays.
     


  3. I placed an order on the 30th and it hasn't shipped yet. I haven't called. It will show up.

    Thanks guys. I figured it was probably a delay from the holiday, I am just anxious to get them and get started. I went with 165gr, and I want to get started on my load development

    I think Wideners is always a little slow on shipping...Midway is much faster and if the prices are even close I tend to give my business to them.

    That said, I've had orders show as "processing" on their site and next thing you know the UPS guy drops off my stuff. :rollingeyes:

    I haven't ordered from them for 6 mo or so, but they've always been a little on the slow side in processing it seems, but not so much that I won't use them. Just plan ahead and jump on any deals when you see them.

    I haven't ordered from Wideners in a long time, several years, and they have always been a bit slow.

    That happens all the time with me! But it does get here without problems.

    Who knows?
    I ordered some ammo from them on 12/30 (a Friday), got a shipment notification on 1/4 (Wednesday) and it should be delivered on 1/9 (Monday).

    With two weekends in there, not horrible.

    Things I ordered from Widners last year still show "processing" on my order but received them a week after ordering them. They never update your orders.
     
  12. I swore I placed an order before the end of the year by my account says nada :dunno:.

    Must be getting old like some of the fellows on here.

    I would say it was due to the holidays. I ordered 2K (180 & 230) from Procession Delta on the 29th and just received them via USPS today. Normally their a little faster but again due to holidays think everything slowed down a bit.
