Any update on the 5.56, Mr. Beagle?


My shooting buddy and business partner, Andy, flew out this weekend to shoot a match and stopped over at our supplier's offices to check on our 5.56 order. He'll be back this week to give me more details, but from what I gather all the components are at the supplier and they're just waiting on cases (some sort of supply chain issue). I appreciate everyone's patience and will keep you posted as I get additional information.

I also found one round, what would have made the 200th, severely compromised by a bad, off-center pressing. I’ll shoot you a picture of it when I get home in a few weeks. It would probably have chambered and probably would have led to a significant failure had I not caught it (but it was very obvious when loading).


I definitely want to follow up with you when you get back and make sure that we make it right.

These reviews are really helpful in identifying what went right and more importantly what went wrong, so keep them coming warts and all and so far: 298 known working, 1 FTF, 1 off center primer.

Packaging has been the major concern and the supplier is addressing it with a higher grade of cardboard.

(I did not know this was a thing. After some research, there's apparently all sorts of litigation for companies supplying the wrong kind of cardboard and the contents getting crushed as a result. News to me.)

Keep 'em coming!

God, don't ya know that SOME in the Biden fiasco are aware of this? And that their blood pressure is going thru the roof?! I can't stop chuckling. Good job, Beagle! And Good Job, Para!! (Can't stop smiling - sorry)

I hope this doesn't come off sounding greedy, but I'm hoping this was such a success that it could be done again in the future.

Thank you again, Mr. Beagle.




God bless America.

EDIT: Our original supplier has a bottleneck on cases, so we exercised an options contract with a second supplier to meet our needs.

We were working the problem expecting solution by Friday, now expecting rounds Wednesday.

Good: We have all the 5.56 secured. We incurred some additional cost but there’s no price increase to you and we can absorb it.

Bad: It’s shipping to us instead of directly to you. There’s a lot of boxes coming…

Ugly: I expect it to be Monday at the earliest for us to get it shipped back out to members. Frown

I should have a (late) update Wednesday for everyone. Again, you’ve all been incredibly encouraging and patient and I’m really looking forward to everyone getting their boxes and getting out to shoot!!

IT'S HERE!! I'm pretty sure my UPS delivery guy hates my guts, because 400+ lbs and eight cartons later, we finally have 5.56 in hand. We'll be busy breaking it down and repacking it soon, ready for your shooting enjoyment. Big Grin I'm incredibly thankful for all of you supporting the group buy and stoked beyond belief that we were able to get it all in well before Christmas!!

Glad to hear it. Let's try to get out on the range with your new rifle ammo and give us some feedback before too long.
