    Brownells Ammo Information

    From the Brownells site:

    AMMO NEWS UPDATE 12/11/12

    We recently met with representatives from Federal Premium Ammunition, and they are working diligently through every channel they have to ease the current shortages. However, the shortages will most likely be with us for some time. The Lake City ammunition plant that produces this ammo is first and foremost a government production facility. It is used to manufacture ammunition for the commercial market only when excess capacity is available after the governmentís orders are filled. The problem right now is that both government and commercial demand are high. Government demand must be fulfilled first, so Federalís hands are somewhat tied in terms of ramping up commercial production.

    When commercial ammo is produced, Federal feeds it into the supply chain, and they assure us that Brownells is well positioned in line for allocations. But for now deliveries will be modest at best. This situation is not likely to change dramatically in the next 60 days.

    As a result, we are seeking out alternate sources of this military type ammunition, and as we acquire inventory we offer it to our customers with backorders in the order their original orders were received. Many of our customers have already received e-mails offering them an alternate to the backordered product.

    We continue to communicate daily with the Federal folks, and will post here any additional news as soon as we receive it.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    Don't make a bit of sense we are not really at war any more there is little to no fight going on any where.
    More to the story I am betting.

    Well, if you remember back during the first and second Gulf war, the U.S. didn't have and couldn't produce its own rifle ammunition to support what it needed. We could only produce about 40% of what the military required. So...

    Israel got a contract to make up our shortages. We've completely lost our manufacturing base and are dependent on other countries to even produce our defense products and equipment. It's a sad state of affairs.
    I think, therefore I am...
