    Just saw this and I have to say I agree 100% with him. Good listen. I visit a larger shop a few times a month and they are always packed with people. It’s so overwhelming for their gun and ammo counter you have to take a number before entering.

    I think most of those rumors are from guys behind the gun counter. It scares people into buying when you tell them you won't be able to have it anymore.

    That and when they jack the price up guys buy it before the price goes up. I’ve talked to some guy who say they paid $40 for a brick of 22 because it’s going to get to $100 a brick and they gotta get their me before it goes up. I actually saw a brick for $199 and it went out of stock.

    Secret warehouses? I mean, if Federal wanted to store the ammo in some secret warehouse that would be their prerogative.
    Really, what I want to know is when are the primers going to come back around??? :(
    Glad he made the video, I hope everyone who's looking for ammo watches that.

    I take it for granted that CCI and Federal are working hard.
    An account of what is going on at Remington after the takeover would be interesting.

    Hey Jason, if you read this, a big thanks to you and all your employees for the hard work!

    Federal has and continues to be my favorite factory ammo.

    It is the unscrupulous retailers and the hoarders that are the biggest problem. And it was the same thing last time too.

    And with them working flat out I reckon the chances of them making another run of American Eagle 327 mag 100gr JSP is nil.

    Glad you're working fellas. Keep at it. We appreciate it!

    We complain about high prices, it’s the right of everyone to charge what they like. Foolish to pay whatever they like. Sometimes you have to go without to get what you want. Not what we want to hear, but it’s reality. Liked the video.

    Just sent this to seven people.
    Thanks for telling us about it.

    imagine if enough medical people could clear up the lies and rumors and often mean-spirited suspicions about the approved COVID vaccines——-

    It would certainly help if people didn't flip the he** out every time there was an election, a health crisis or economic downturn.

    Or just do what many of us do and learn to load your own.

    I'll be sure to replenish my stockpile with mostly Federal. After the flapping and squawking stops.

    I accept what he says about them producing ammunition non stop, etc.
    My question is is the same as it has been...why are there no components available? All the gun shops in the area say they can't get any primers from their suppliers. They also say they can't get ammunition from their suppliers.

    So...where is all this ammuntion going???

    Thanks for sharing the videos. You know, there is only one thing that makes their stories not totally air tight. They knew this was coming. They knew for the past 4 years, for the past 12 years, that this was coming. They knew the current party would not be in power forever. They knew that some day the opposition would regain power and they knew that, when that party came to power, there would unprecedented demand, just as we are seeing. They probably had no idea about the pandemic and the civil unrest, but they should have spent the past 12 years adding production capacity because they knew it would be needed a some point.

    The ammo makers said essentially the same thing in 2008 and 2012. "We can't keep up, and we can't add capacity in 9 months." And I believe them. But it has been 12 years since Obama came to power and the ammo and components completely and totally disappeared for almost the entire time he was in office. By now, it should be painfully clear to all but the most blinded people that we will have at least 4 more years of this demand. (In fact, when we can no longer import ammo, we're going to have a supply side problem as well as a demand side problem.)

    It's time to start breaking ground on new facilities. Not just at the assembly point, but the plants that make powder and primers and the plants that make cases and projectiles as well. These guys need to start forward thinking. This is like standing around watching the Titanic head straight for the iceberg and no one is trying to turn the ship.

    Maybe I'm wrong. but wouldn't the ammo manufacturers be getting the bulk of the primers ?

    Doubling production of any product is a monumental task , physically and financially.
    I guess it all looks pretty simple from where we sit.

    They are probably hedging against universal ammo backround checks, quantity restrictions, and onerous additional taxes which will kill demand overnight.
