Question What is an Acceptable time to fill an Order.

What is an Acceptable time to fill an Order.

Ordered 3K rounds from Freedom Munitions on Friday Aug 25.

1 Full Week later.

Order Status: Order #100721467 - Awaiting Fulfillment.


9mm Luger 147 gr RN New
FM9R147N $0.23
Ordered: 1000
$228.90



357 Sig 125 gr FP New
FM357SF125N $0.33
Ordered: 1000
$333.00



45 Auto 230 gr RN New
FM45R230N $0.27
Ordered: 1000
$271.60

This ammunition is said to be "In Stock".
And said, "Free Shipping".
Another week.......

Slow Processing.
Slow Shipping.
And Underpowered Ammunition are quickly taking away Freedom Munition's selling points.
As well as Creditability.

Maybe they are checking your credit?...Just kidding. They are slow sometimes but looks like it should ship soon. I don't usually pay attention to how long it takes FM to fill and ship my order. I plan ahead so I don't freak out waiting.

No I Don't Work For FM

Sorry for your delay and personally I have never waited over two weeks on any order and that is over a four year period and close to 20K rounds ordered. You're only 493 more miles than me than FM warehouse in Lewiston, Idaho so I really don't get the delay.

You say it's "underpowered", so what brand other than FM are you referring it to ? I have broken in many guns on FM and have never had a problem with it or have I thought that it was ever underpowered. Are there better choices for ammo on the market ? Heck yeah there is, but for target practice ammo you can't beat the price too many times with FM.

I love their ammo for range use.

The 9mm has been problematic.
And in only my 9mm CDP Pro.

But NEVER any problems with .357 Sig, .40 S&W, or 45 ACP.

But I'm giving them the Benefit of Doubt on the 9 as a bad lot.

Well off to Academy of the weekend needs....

That sucks darrell! I ordered 1k 9mm (147gr), 1k .45(230gr), 500 .357 mag and 2k 5.56 around the same time you first posted and received mine right around the 1 week mark. I order well before I run low so wait times are no biggie to me but I get what you're also saying. Why does it take 3-4 weeks when the web store shows it all in stock

I do -- they're having a big sale AND free shipping. I ordered some 1,500 rounds (in 2 calibers) and I EXPECT them to take a long time!

Think for a minute: 50 states; if ONLY 100 people per state order because of the sale (on top of however many usually order every week), that's 5,000 orders to pack and ship AND wanna bet staff is short for the holiday weekend?

ALSO think about this (I'm looking ruefully at myself on this one...) Amazon is desperately asking Prime members to NOT pick two-day free shipping if we don't need it (stupidly, they're offering a 'bennie' that you can only use IF you regularly order orders from 'pantry'). But,I ordered some stuff, and since I'm rarely in a rush, I picked the 5-10 days (got $5 credit at pantry that I cannot ever use...).

Man-oh-man, I was getting annoyed and twitchy! SHEESH! When was the order coming?!? WHY did I have to wait "so long"? WHERE was my order!!

So, I'm not going to 'be nice' anymore to Amazon. I AM USED to my orders appearing within one or two days! (So what if they're losing money on Prime!? NOT my problem! ) So -- because I've been 'taught' to expect very very quick delivery, I DO expect it and I notice when it doesn't happen as fast as I expect. We've all gotten that sort of expectation...

I really LIKE Freedom Munitions because their stock is well-made. I checked prices this time (just 'cause) and their prices were the best. So -- two great points: cheaper AND really well made! So, if it takes them time? I'll wait!

p.s., I got a concerned call from my TX distributor on Friday, because he had a client who REEEALLY needed a gauge by Monday. My distributor isn't IN Houston -- but UPS and FEDEX are NOT working down there, so he can't get the stock order he had me ship to him Monday (It's in some warehouse down there -- I HOPE it's high-and-dry!!); could I drop ship to this guy in OK? Absolutely! So, the order is taken care of.

Freedom may have 'things going on' we don't know about.

Well spoke with Amy yesterday.

She stated they experienced a problem manufacturing the 147 grain.

Put me on hold.
Then came back and stated the product was now in the warehouse.
And being filled.

Called today.
Spoke with Marsha.
She stated, "We are trying to fill the order".

I asked how long would it be.
The order was placed two weeks ago.
And said ammunition was advertised "In Stock".
She hung up on me.

I will let the order stand.

But I think Freedom Munitions has pretty much "Blown Their Wad".
