Got an email from Elite telling me it all sold in 43 minutes. What was the point?? Might of been nice to have a waiting list going for people that don't live on the internet!!

I know the feeling. Been trying to get a scorpion EVO 3. I hope EAs supply issue goes away once they get virgin brass going.

It did sell out in 43 minutes.

Everyone wants to be on a waiting list. That is impossible to do especially with the T6B round.

Well, I wonder if a pre-paid list might work? Perhaps the availability of components makes that impossible.

I have given up on buying ammo from elite ammunition...

I understand there are supply limitations that inhibit a normal sale cycle, but I can't wait around like a crack fiend every time there is a limited run.

No offense to Elite whatsoever, I have been buying their products since the good old days, and their products are certainly worth waiting and fighting for, but the industry has taken the fun out of it, when I can barely practice with my self-defense rounds.

I hope times change, in the future.

Given the limitations, I am impressed Elite ammunition has been able to continue supplying the community with high quality products, at any rate -- thanks for persevering! :thumb:

Once their house-branded brass is here, things will probably change.

Yes it will be nice when we have our own brass.
cHaMeLeoN352 I amaze myself sometimes when think about the major limitations as well. Of coarse after stressing out over these past years I have more grey hair than I should at my age :)
But with the limitations came some new products over the past few years. Having children is a great motivator to offer more products.
Which are all developed by Jay. So this chapter has been bad and good :)

EA makes the best, and if any list was made it should be for people who are going to use it and not immediately put it on GB @ 10x the price.
Just my 2 cents

There is and we have gotten grief about having it in the past so it's not mentioned often.

I have been loading my own. EA still is the BEST and worth waiting for!
