Business school 101. Never be afraid of the tax man.
I think you have gotten some bad information regarding corporate tax structures. And you understand that Federal and CCI are owned by Vista Outdoors ( https://vistaoutdoor.com/brands/ ) and that Vista Outdoors purchased from the proceedings of the bankruptcy court the Remington name (brand) and some of the assets including the ammunition lines and related facilities. The output of the former Freedom Group/Remington plant has been hardly above idle for about a year. Any contracts that the former Remington (of the Freedom Group) may have had or debts or other encumberments would have been rendered null and void in the bankruptcy.
grap-a-gun had Blazer bulk 1k 9mm for $799.00
Ammo is available but it’s up to you if the cost is acceptable.
Except I still have and can occasionally find powder and projectiles. Heck I just received a thousand Berry's 230 grain FMJ yesterday and found a few pounds of Autocomp at the shop the other week.
So I plant to stack it all deeper, but most especially primers.
I just want to see this Federal ammo guy tell us that little tax story .
As of this morning the local store had
7.62x39, .223 and 5.56 (in several size boxes to include 150 rds), 204 Ruger, 12 ga 00 (about $12 for 20), 22-250, 357 Mag, 7.62x54R, .30-06
Prices ranged a bit. But nothing over 50 cents per round.
Primers are probably the hardest thing to make or substitute. Not that it’s difficult to physically make the primer, but getting the chemicals and tools to do it is the hard part. Nitrocellulose powder is dangerous to make and even more dangerous to use homemade powder of unknown burn characteristics because home-brew would probably not be well controlled and therefore not be predictable. Black powder however works. It may not cycle a semiauto and it may not have the velocity or range that smokeless powder does, but it CAN be made relatively simply and safely. Lead can be cast. Brass can be reused several times. So powder and primers should be top priority, bullets if you can’t make your own.
That would be trying to support unsubstantiated speculation with anecdotal observations.
They were never behind in production, hence no "nearly caught up".
Enough baloney that I can make two sammiches.
Things are starting to trickle in but until there is a choice of different brands of primers that stay on the shelves for extended periods I will not breath a sigh of relif.
Just remember that Remington, who makes a quarter of all primers, has been down for 9 months. And much of the primers have been used in getting outstanding contracts filled.
I just gave up waiting and spent my Nancy Pelosi money on ammo on GunBroker.
Paid way too much for 9 mm. 22 long rifle and .22 magnum but at least I've got it and don't have to worry about it.
Still can't bring myself to pay what they're asking for .357 Magnum even with free guvment money.
"I do not think it means, what you think it means."
or do we assume that you guys -always-mean...hours Later?
Totally different scenarios and conclusions.
On another note, J&G Sales ammo, while pricy, is still very limited. 380 acp is about nil, same with other calibers.
If ammo is coming back, then I will be convinced when its more available over all.
