Midway has had this item on back order over 2 years ago I order then and received them several months later.

Chase, While I am retired now I have over 35 years running a purchasing department spending $billions of dollars ($400 million+ annually) and I can tell you good suppliers will bend over backwards to satisfy big buyers even if it doesn't make economic sense.

I placed a back order for 2000 on August 18th.  It was originally supposed to ship at the end of August.  Received an email last week that they now expect to have them in stock on November 26th.   I'm guessing that in stock means for existing back orders, not new orders.  Currently they are not accepting back orders.

Got word on October 5th that my order had shipped........Yea!    Midway is still not accepting backorders.

I also received notification that my batch of Remington HBWC's shipped yesterday.   Looking forward to seeing how they shoot compared to my Alberts and the HBWC's I cast.

So... dumb question from someone who is just getting into the .38 world, are the remingtons that much better than magnus swaged? From what I have read in past posts on the forum reloading .38 for long line is not nearly as forgiving as .45.

Same thing happened with H&N 32 bullets. The German laws for export make them essentially impossible to import into Canada or the USA.

I saw over on target talk that someone was going to make a large order from Germany.   I hope they are the same as you like  http://targettalk.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=56213

PPC shooters kill for Remingtons. I have 2000 on the way. Never used them before. I've used Magnus and am happy. They hold 1.5 outta my 38 1911. Getting ready to try them in 2 more 1911's I have. Been using 2.6 WST for short line but didn't like them at 50 with that load. Gonna bump them up for long line. I'm new to WST and have always used 2.8 BE and have been pleased.

I've loaded Magnus 148s with 2.7 WST and they chronographed 730 out of a model 14. Didn't random rest them, but they were effective at 50 yards offhand.

I placed a back order for 2000 on 9-11-17.  This morning I received an e-mail from Midway that they are expected to be in stock on 11-16-17.

My Remington HBWC's arrived today.   First impression?   They are as ugly looking as the pictures of them on the internet. Smile   Hey, but pretty is as pretty does.   Measuring them brought a surprise to me.   They are .365" at the hollow base end and in the middle, and then taper down to .358" at the front end.   Must be they average the dimensions to come up with the .360" they advertise.

Okay, Jim, cleaned the black lube off, and here is what I get on the 4 bands: bottom band, .361"; 2nd band, .361"; 3rd band, .361"; top band, .356".   The top band is clearly quite a bit smaller than the rest of the bullet, and combined with the overall large diameter of the bullets may contribute to their accuracy in some way.

That's closer.
I think the m52 guys roll crimp over the end and the revolver guys roll crimp at the base of the .356 dia.

Either way works for revolver.

I was told the black lube is some sort of graphite wax, thus it is difficult to remove and probably has great lubrication properties.

Here's a thread where Jerry Keefer talks about removing the lube from the Remington HBWC and re-lubing with 45-45-10.  Sounds like he did this for 2 reasons 1) washing the bullets removes small flakes of lead left from the mfg. process and 2) he felt the 45-45-10 is superior lube.  At least he said he got better results.
