    I received an email from FS Reloading this afternoon explaining the shipping delays. Here is what the email said:

    Where's My Stuff?

    Dear FS Reloading Customers,
    My name is Jonathan Carter, General Manager of Pictor Design, LLC, the web hosting provider for FS Reloading. I regret to inform you that the owner of Factory Sales, LLC and FS Reloading, Greg Ehlenbach has been suffering from declining health for some time and is no longer able to operate his business.


    Pictor Design is owed a great deal of money by FS Reloading. While reviewing the situation, I was dismayed to find a large number of customers waiting for orders that haven't been shipped. I didn't want to see FS Reloading simply close its doors leaving me unpaid and you unserved.


    Fortunately we reached an agreement with Greg Ehlenbach on June 1, 2016 for Pictor Design to acquire many of the assets related to fsreloading.com. As a result, Pictor Design has taken over the operration of the FS Reloading web site.


    John Lee of Lee Precision has graciously agreed to help us and you who are owed Lee Products by shipping the past due orders direct to each customer. You will receive a tracking number as soon as Lee Precision can process and ship the orders. Now that we have direct control of the web site, you can expect steady improvements in service and support.


    My staff and I are excited to be taking over fsreloading.com. Many of us are avid hunters, shooters and reloaders just like you. We have built and maintained shooting industry web sites since 1994 and look forward to now serving your reloading needs. We greatly appreciate your support and patience during this transition and look forward to great things coming soon.


    Jonathan Carter, General Manager Pictor Design, LLC. ​

    "We greatly appreciate your support and patience during this transition and look forward to great things coming soon."
    In other words it might be in the slow delivery bin for processing but it should get to you...have patience.

    I am almost afraid to stay with them because right off this guy says Greg owed his company a lot of money so Greg signed the company over to Jonathan. I hope the new guys don't just take what they feel they were owed, plus a little more for their time and a little more for their profit and walk away.

    It happened to a company I worked for in the early 80s. The company had been in business 73 years and when the last 2 family members took it over, and then eventually retired and sold it they were way behind. They sold it and the new owners sold off the stock and machinery and left pink slips for everyone in a plastic bag hanging on a door knob.

    I hope the prices stay reasonable. I like FS, but I ain't stupid.

    Yeah I would be a little leery also about buying anything more for a while anyway. Seeing how the owner didn't inform you about what might happen to your recent purchases.
    I think you might put a phone call into it.

    Don't have any outstanding orders. New manager just sent out the informational email to explain late deliveries, and I suppose, to soothe any worried souls about their orders. I like dealin with the company. If it is still open in a couple months i will put in a small order.
