I have been ordering quite a lot of stuff from the USA recently not all of it shooting related everything goes fine until it arrives in the UK then it just goes into black hole. Its costing me money in orders I can not fulfill I'm not a happy bunny.

Will be sat with the Border Agency in a warehouse with thousands of others. Busy time of year.

It's a poor show that it's hit n miss with parcels in this country

I don't mean to sound too depressing, but I ordered a Grip-N-Pull bullet puller from the US last year and it sat in UK customs for 6 weeks.
After I had paid import duty etc, the cost rose by about 75%!

I buy a lot of stuff from the USA not all shooting related in fact only a small portion is shooting related. Most of it is for my other hobbies/enterprises. No matter where I buy it from it fairly zips across the USA five days is average to end up at Heathrow. Then it disappears into a black hole. No tracking info nothing. I have waited months for packages to arrive and usually with a customs charge before I can get my hands on them.
No wonder this Country is ------.

Got my mould to day. I'm really pleased with the mould. It spent just over four weeks with customs about six weeks in all for delivery I guess it's the price you pay. There was a custom charge as well. They had really torn into the parcel I was worried some of the bits might of been missing. They obviously thought it needed a serious coat of looking at.Oh well it's here now so I feel a casting session coming on. If I can find the time to fit it in.

Happy days.
hmm whats next teanews

Yes they charged me a similar amount. But it's here now. There are lots of goodies on the web site I would like but actually getting it over here is just a nightmare. I used to send my stuff to Florida and one of our Engineers who has a Holiday home there used to do a gun run twice a year for me. But unfortunately he has left and now works for another Company. So he could be anywhere in the World now a days such is the nature of the business.
Anyway.
hmm what's next teanews. I have got a ..it load of 7.62x39 cases and a couple of NOE moulds for the same I guess I should do something with them.
