People still own 30.06?This was discussed ad nauseam on other forms.
I cannot stop myself from repeating several points:
- At the moment when everyone is looking for 9mm, the video shows manufacturing expensive .357 SIG, packed in very expensive plastic boxes by HAND.
- The biggest crunch is for 22LR, right?
- The crucial hunting round is 30-06.
If that's your concern, buy Hornady instead. But Hornady doesn't sell direct, nor update their stocks daily. Which is why I've been buying Federal and Armscor.yep, he is a victim.... PEOPLE don't you see it ???? ? he is making 9mm and 5.56 he is selling to the Government, not to us civilians. And that has been the plan for a long time, no ammo guns are useless .
I hate Hornady bullets, and please give me the link where is federal ammo now and not at $80.00 for 50 rounds.If that's your concern, buy Hornady instead. But Hornady doesn't sell direct, nor update their stocks daily. Which is why I've been buying Federal and Armscor.
Hornady Won't Sell to NY State Agencies After Comptroller Threatens Banks Over Gun Business - The Truth About GunsWe recently noted the thinly-veiled threat that New York State comptroller Thomas J. DiNapoli made when he sent a friendly letter to most of the nation’s largest financial institutions. In it, he hinted — wink, wink — that it could be bad for their business if they continue to facilitate...www.thetruthaboutguns.com
I don’t think you get it.Honestly would love to know who is buying all this way overpriced ammo....and what's being done with it (hoarded I assume).
Before all this craziness, I'd go to the range at least once a week to put a hundred or so rounds down the pipe. Did this for years. The club I belong to, you have to sign in with your member number each trip. If you looked back through the sign in book it was always the same few members who shot on a regular basis, couple times each week. That was when ammo was "cheap".
Now I go maybe once a month and there are even fewer members shooting on a regular basis. Point being....where is all the ammo that's being purchased going? Granted, I have a relatively small sample size with my club, but I sure don't see anyone using it to practice (i.e....there's so many new shooters we can't keep up with demand).
And, the guy in the video is a whiner, and doesn't put his company in a good light. Put your big boy pants on and figure it out. Complaining about too high a demand and your inability to meet it...maybe he's not the right man for the job. YMMV, of course.
I laid in a pretty good store of 9mm and way too much .22LR... But then I go and do something dumb like pick up a new caliber rifle and... ooops.Fact is? Anyone who wasn’t buying ammo and/or components in 2017-early 2020 when the prices were good only have themselves to blame for being short now.
Also guilty. I said I wasn't going to do that, especially in current times, but then I decided I wanted a .45-70 lever action. I managed to score some (only slightly) overpriced ammo and had good timing on obtaining reloading components, so I'm good for a while. I'm kinda surprised Federal and Hornady are trickling out .45-70 ammo, even now.... But then I go and do something dumb like pick up a new caliber rifle and... ooops.
