I called customer service to see if there were any updates on when my back ordered
cheddite primers will ship. I was told that they expect the primers to arrive at their warehouse tomorrow!!!!! and they should be shipping out primers next week. I was also informed that they have enough to fill new primer orders. So if you need primers get your orders in now.

I ordered (not back ordered) primers from Ballistic products on the morning of February 5th and just received my order on 4/1/21. I believe they started the backorders later that day, judging from the postings here on TS.com

Word of warning, instead of shipping me the case I ordered still in the case, they took the individual boxes out of the case, then threw them into a much larger box loose with only a very small strip of butcher paper on top. All of the primer boxes were destroyed in shipping, the larger shipping box was destroyed in shipping and after I received it I found one of the sleeves was missing 6 primers that were also not in the box. So somewhere in the line of FedEx between Ballistic Products and myself there are 6 loose primers in the supply chain somewhere.

Cheddites seems to be about the only shot shell primers that are quasi, semi, psuedo available. CAC had them available briefly last week for $25/k. 2K limit at first but soon reduced to 1K limit.

Mine was 2/9. Got them a week or 2 ago. Thankfully, they were in the original packaging and not loose.
I'm hoping mine will ship soon then as I placed my order on 2/11 and per the web page my status is:

2/11/2021​
Back Ordered, No Shipment Set​

Same timeline for me, same story on loose boxes beat half to death in shipping.

I am waiting on my 700 x. It was around Feb 11. They don't up date the order board.

No, they don't. Getting the shipping notice with tracking number was a complete surprise. To be honest, I forgot I ordered them. 5,000 primers @ $30 a 1,000 is a nice surprise in this horrible Biden era. CAC was charging $25 so $30 isn't too bad even though I choked a little. I read CAC had a 1,000 or 2,000 limit so I guess it's a tradeoff for a little more cost for double the primers.
