Its good to hear someone talking about the real problem, rather than the government is buying everything hyperbole...Thanks for sharing.
I have had similar conversations with reps from many ammo manufactures saying the same thing. Still doesn't help our problem.I just left a show where Winchester was represented. I asked the rep what he thought was gong on with ammo. In short, here's what he said. Winchester is basically producing virtually 24 hours a day and has diverted all resources, including reloading components, to producing loaded ammo. The next part was a bit disconcerting. As many have guessed, he felt that the government ammo buy was not really what some have made it out to be in that the order is over a four to five year time period. The problem is that consumers are hoarding. More so, and I did not like to hear this, he said that if consumers did not buy another round, it will take up to fourteen months for the industry to recover supply equal to the levels before what I will call the ammo crash. I had some questions to clarify some of this, but due to the number of people there, I did not have the chance. Please don't shoot the messenger.
