 March 2020 pallet update 3/25: pallet & orders are on track

* This pallet is shipping in two parts to minimize the delay caused by fulfillment on the last few parcels on this order.  The first half of the pallet is due to arrive later this week (around 3/27).  An email and invoice will be sent out late Friday 3/27 if your ammo is on the first part of the pallet.

* UPS will be delivering both parts of this pallet in response to current conditions.  UPS only picks up on weekdays so we are planning to have the first half of the pallet ship out by that following Monday 3/30.

* The second half of this pallet is waiting for a last few parcels that got caught up in fulfillment delays caused by the increased demand for ammunition over the last two weeks.  Those last few parcels should ship overland later this week and is estimated to arrive in Hawaii around April 8.

* We have not seen ammo (particularly "cheap"/plinking 9mm, 223, 556. 762x39, 22LR, and 762x51) re-stock yet on the wholesale/distributor side yet.  Some 308 that would have been considered cheaper/plinking on March 10 re-stocked briefly but at more than 9cpr higher than the pre-March 11 price.  That increase is in line with what we have been told to expect by the warehouse/distributors/manufacturers.  Some manufacturers are reporting an 8-21% cost increase on materials for ammo so dealers should expect prices across the board to have to rise accordingly.  We will monitor these increases over the next few weeks to see how it goes.

 

Program Changes:

Over the past 2 years, we have enjoyed meeting our fellow Oahu 2a community.  We aim to continue offering the Oahu 2a community choice and affordable prices in 2020 and beyond. 

As of Feb 12, 2020, the ammunition licensing bill looks likely to pass this legislative session. If this bill does pass, we will need to adjust the logistics of the ammunition is delivered (switching to a common carrier ie UPS from a private courier system).  To make sure that the logistics of this switch are ironed out before the bills take effect (if passed), we will be having UPS do final Oahu delivery for the March and May pallets.

As with our current delivery system, there will be no additional fee for delivery.  Packages will be sent in a plain brown box with tracking.  Inline with most mainland ammunition companies who ship, unless requested, packages will be not be sent signature required.  Signature required packages may incur an additional $4.50 fee. UPS packages are insured for the first $100 of value.  Optional additional insurance will be available up to $50,000 of value at $0.79 per additional $100 of value.

The way the bills are worded currently, we will not be able to re-take possession once the ammunition leaves our mainland facility (ie the ammunition is purchased online / out of state) so invoices will be sent out about a week after the pallet closes.  From there the pallet will go to the port in California and then onward to Hawaii.  The same day the pallet is released, it will be taken to UPS for induction.  UPS typically is able to deliver the packages the next day intra-Oahu.

 Upcoming Pallets

May 2020: Request window (May 1 - May 8).  Est. delivery around May 26.  Final delivery will be via UPS Ground. ** We will monitor inventory to see if a May pallet is feasible **

 

Program Information:

From the 1st to the 7th of every odd numbered month (January, March, May, July, September, and November).  On average, local delivery on Oahu occurs 2-2.5 weeks after the close of the request window. There is no minimum box, case, or dollar amounts required.   

Sometimes ammo availability and prices fluctuate so a couple days before the order window opens we will post a price list that has the common calibers and brands we've seen requested by Hawaii.  Please check back a couple days before the start of the month for current pallet pricing. If you are looking for a particular ammunition (caliber or brand etc) that is not listed, please contact us at http://www.kaleoarms.com/contact-us/, email us at customer.service@kaleoarms.com.  We will be happy to find/quote the ammo you are looking for to make the sailing.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
