Just reminding everyone that you still have a few days to meet your maximum 2000 rounds per caliber per year limit for purchasing ammo from the CMP E-Store. The limit will reset on January 1, so you will be able to buy another 2000 rounds in 2021, but if you’ve anything left on this year's 2000 round limit you might want to go ahead and order up to you limit so you don’t lose it. Right now they have .223, 7.62X54R, 8X57mm, .30-06, .308, 5.56, .38 special and .40 S&W. They also have .22 LR but it’s all high end match grade and fairly expensive if all you want is plinking ammo.

ETA: Also .45 ACP JHP

I just sent the rest of the CMP documents in today. Is there a typical time delay between submitting the verification paperwork and getting approved?

edit...turns out it’s about 2 days

Hmmm my buddy is looking for defensive 357 ammo. Wonder if I should order him some from the CMP. I’m just concerned about the wait...
Put a case on order while trying to source elsewhere.
I don't think things are going to get straightened out in a month or so...

My buddy without hesitation said “order it!”
Placed an order for the 158s

Yeah, once a few folks (dealers) find out it's on the e-Store... It'll be gone like a fart in a hurricane...

Yeah that’s what I’ve heard, I’m new to them. I’ve had people say they get their orders in a month and then some 3 months. I’m just treating it like a backorder, whenever it gets to me I’ll be happy to see it.

You do have to renew your notarized form 2A every three years or if your ship to address has changed. Also if your LTC has renewed since your last order you’ll have to submit an updated copy.

Now-a-days with Covid and all it’s just slow. Last ammo order I placed last October took about 6 weeks.

Not as bad as TSUSA. The CMP only sells to individuals who have provide proof of US citizenship, membership in a CMP affiliated organization and participation in a marksmanship or other firearms related activity (don’t need to provide proof of participation if you’re over 60). All that plus, as I said above, you’re limited to 2000 rounds of any given caliber per year means that their supplies last a bit longer.
