I know you said lefties will probably be last to ship - any rough idea when that would be?

Thanks!

Everything working through right now is either a long action with BDL style bottom metal, or a long/short with DBM bottom metal. The guys called quite a few folks today letting them know theirs were done. The ball is officially rolling.

I wish I could do the same, but I'm holding out for Norma brass to come back in stock for 7mag. That's literally the only thing I'm missing other than the rifle.
