Freedom Munitions shipping/fullfillment times....?

For those who have ordered from Freedom Munitions before, how long did it take you to get your ammo? I created an account and placed an order back on Nov. 26, and it hasn't even shipped yet. I like the price for what I'm getting, and the free shipping is nice, but if it takes up to a month to get the order it kinda' defeats a lot of the purpose.

Have called a few times and they've told me it will get out and they'll contact me with shipping info. Is this how it was for anyone else?

I'm pretty put off by this. I'm calling again tomorrow, and if the order hasn't actually left on its way I'm going to ask for cancellation and a full refund, and I'll order my bulk ammo from somewhere else. Or is this just how it is when ordering ammo online?

I have quit dealing with Extreme and Freedom due to this reason.

That has not been my experience with Freedom. I usually get a shipping notification within a few days of ordering.

I suspect they got overwhelmed with Black Friday purchases. They ran a lot of deals around that time.

Regardless, I can't excuse their customer service in this instance. It's been almost 4 weeks--that's ridiculous under any circumstances.

Yeah, Freedom got slammed with their 5% off & free shipping Black Friday deal. They're usually slow, like 3 weeks but longer now. I order some of their branded ammo, and bought more 300Blk & 10mm on that deal too.

For regular factory ammo, these guys typically offer great prices and same day shipping. They always double box their ammo too.

Here's another thing to know Mo.

They ship by ground from Utah, so even once it's shipped it will still be a while before it gets to you in CT.

The last couple times I ordered from freedom it was about two weeks before they shipped out. But Nov 26 and hasn't shipped yet is getting ridiculous. That disappointing. You seem to be having a bad run Mo, hope it turns around for ya.

A big Amen to that. Extreme drove me nuts blaming it all on UPS ground. I made several orders from both RMR and Montana Gold. Same free shipping but I get it in a couple days. Extreme can wither on the vine for all I care. Sorry, done talking now...

Thanks for the insight and recommendations, guys. I'll be polite when I call, but I still want to seek other sources.

Update: Just received UPS shipping notice from FM for some 10mm pistol ammo ordered Dec 8, or 11 days to ship. Still haven't heard anything on my Nov 29th 5.56 & 300Blk rifle ammo order...

Cheers

I received my 'shipping notice' as well, and it was two of the three items I ordered back on Nov. 26.

No idea when the last one is shipping. This means that I have to make sure I'm there at the delivery address TWICE for different shipments, when just once is enough of an effort to schedule for.

Never again.

They often run sales and get overwhelmed but it will eventually ship. I am patient enough to wait as I've not found anywhere that can match their pricing and service.

I know it'll get here, but as I mentioned if every order will take up to a month to arrive, it doesn't really seem to pay off. Better off paying for shipping on similarly-priced deals elsewhere if you'll get it in a few days.

never had an issue

Buy from freedom munitions all the time, never had an issue. They do tell you up front that some calibers have a delay, but they do tell you ahead of time. Purchased 4K rounds of 9mm on black friday, delivered 8 days later. Have never had an order take more than 10 days from them

I ordered from Freedom back in early November and it took about the 10 days they said it would to ship on in stock 223 & 9 mm. In today's world of fast shipping and technology it blows me away that it takes them 10 days to ship something they have in stock! And this was before Black Friday deals! If this was my business I would be looking for ways to get my in stock product out the door FAST as I know they are losing business because no one wants to wait that long in today's world!

In the past I have used Ammo To Go and Ammunition Depot online for my needs but you have to kind of watch as they will be cheaper on one ammo and higher on others so do your recon before ordering.

Good luck and Merry Christmas all!
