Default half my Dillon order gets back ordered

Today I received my RT1200, .223 and .308 trim dies and Super Swager. Everything else was backordered (223 and 308 dies, 650 quick change, 650 case feeder). Panic buying on reloading equipment? when is going to end!

I ordered a 650 quick change and got it no problem but I did get backordered on a bullet puller and casefeeder plate. Its just the frenzy goin on. The cow palace gun show was dumb because the line for ammo was stupid. Didn't even bother. Thought I woulda had luck with gun powder. Nope.
From what I've read on here, sounds like 223 dies are hard to come by right now.

I'm in the same boat. I placed my Dillion order over a weekand a half ago through Brian Enos for 223 dies, trimmer, swager, and quickchange. I was told 2-3 weeks.

Crap! I just got an RT1200 for my birthday. I still need to get the .223 die that the trimmer fits to. I hope they have it in stock. Guess I'll find out Monday!

I ordered the RT1200, trim die, 223 dies, 223 caliber conversion, SR casefeed plate, Swager & a few other items from BE on 1/7. I'm guessing I'll be waiting a while...

I've never waiting more than a few days to receive anything from Dillon and I've ordered a lot from them directly. They must be backed up like everyone else right now.
