Hi All:
I ordered 250 Rnds of American Eagle on the 23rd of Oct. and it stated it was back ordered and would be in two weeks from then. I called today to get a date on it's arrival and was told it would be July 2013.
I was speechless for a second but asked if it took that long would it be the same $19.99 price per box and free shipping? She said yes, so as long as they don't charge my credit card I might get the deal of the year.

Hi All:
I am getting an e-mail each week ,or so, thanking me for my order and stating it will be in at about a week or ten days time. Got 3 so far so maybe July 2013 is a good date. :lmao:

Stopped by the Cabela's in Mitchell, SD yesterday just to see. Asked a sales guy about 5.7x28 and he couldn't find any in the ammo section. He checked their on-line database, and told me that they have over 500 boxes at the distribution facility in Sidney, NE. I asked him what kind, SS195, SS197, AE etc... He was clueless, but the picture showed SS197.

I ordered 12 boxes of the new Federal stuff when it was on sale at Brownell's. It was not in stock (of course) so they backordered it for me. Who knows how long it will take, but at least I am "in line" to get some. With their black Friday deal, it was only about $18 per box. Not bad if I actually get it.

I ordered a 1000 rounds of AE from Cabelas, @ $19.99 the other day + free shipping. The backorder time was 2-3 weeks. Yesterday it was 0-1 week. So who knows. If it ships by Christmas I will order another 1000 rounds.

Can't find ANY 5.7x28 ammo listed on Cabela's website. No FNH or AE. Weird......

Hi All:
I am the OP on this thread and recieved an E-Mail this morning saying the ammo did not come in on the date listed (12-12-2012), and if I did not reply in 10 days the order would be canceld. I replied I did not want to cancel and send it when it comes in. I have nothing to lose. We will see.

Just spoke with Cabela - said ammo "sold out for the season," not back-orderable, not coming anytime soon as far as the customer rep could tell. Said she had none of the things in the system that can normally at least hint at a date of arrival....sucks.

I called about the same ammo yesterday and she told me January 12th as possible arrival date. At least they still had my backorder in the system.

I'm seeing some of the SS197SR with the "Lead Free Primer" sticker on it on GB, for high prices. Has that been available anywhere other than Cabela's? It looks like some of the lucky few that got their orders filled are just flipping it. Isn't anybody still shooting? (rhetorical question)

Hi All:
Rather than start a new TOPIC I will add this to the one I already started. I will be attending the SHOT SHOW tomorrow here in Las Vegas and will go to the FN booth and see if I can get any info on the ammo and pistol availability situation. I know I will be talking to sales people but will report on any info I can get.

From what I have seen, it's all of the 12 headstamped ammo. I still shoot and won't even consider selling any of the ammo that I do have. I'm also on many vendors notify me lists, so I can have more.

Tried Cabela's again today - sold out for the season they said, same as in December when I tried. Did however manage to get on back order with Bass ProShops...she said she wasn't sure how much they had coming in and if it would cover all the back orders, but the system let her add my order (which was good) and that it looked like ammo was due to arrive at the end of the month. They don't charge you until your stuff arrives, so I had them out me down for 10 boxes. Price was list at $26.99.

ya GB is a joke and people are just trying to make a buck. If this is your buisness then sure make a buck if not shoot the ammo or take up golf. I understand the free market and customers determine the price but I still think it is chickin sh!!t and stupid greed. :evil:
let me get some ammo I will be at the range same day.lol
