Hornandy free bullits

Can anyone give me a time line on when they receieved their free bullits from Hornandy ? I bought my Lock N Load AP in December , turned in my request for the free bullits that come with the purchase. I haven't heard a thing other than they received my order. I know orders are way behind but just curious when others have got their bullits.

It took a couple months for the XTP promotion to deliver before the ammo rush set in. It might take longer now. It did make an XTP guy out of me. I buy them for several calibers now, and the good new is that they are still available to purchase locally.

I got the free bullets within two weeks after submitting the paperwork. This was in September/October of 2012, however.

...now, all bets are off.

PS - The free bullets were not worth it. I will not buy anything from Hornady in the future. - bad quality control is a huge problem for them these days.

...why tear your hair out over a few free bullets? It is not worth it to me.

avoid hornady products.

I have read and heard of all the complaints about Hornandy Lock N Load presses. The one I have works as advertised. The free bullits were not the deciding factor to purchase it. My thinking is, there gonna give them to me, I will take them. It's been 8 weeks and no bullits. I have no choice but to wait them out.

My bullets came a few weeks after I sent the certificate in. I have had zero problems with my press and I've run 5,000+ rounds through it. I'd buy another one without hesitation.

Is there any Hornady thread that rajbica doesn't come on and dog the product?

Don't both trying to reason with him on Hornady guys, the dude has a hatred of them that is unhealthy and likes to espouse those views on any thread concerning Hornady. It really gets old, but is the cost of doing business here I guess.

Ole Man 52 - have you received a confirmation number from them?

I'd give their Customer Service a call and ask why it is taking so long. They have absolutely awesome customer service - it certainly cannot hurt. As for Michelle Sass, explain the situation to her and that you know other people have sent in their redemption forms after you and received their projos already and are just curious as to why you have been waiting for a couple of months now.

Had my bullets in less than three weeks.

Good luck.
