    Better late than never, I guess. Hope it does as well as you think it will.

      it dont see how it can do anything but help. the question is how much it'll help and how soon. Remington certainly deserves our support for taking a chance on expanding an ammo plant under obama, which is when they started amping up production of .22lr ammo

        This is interesting:

        In 2020, there was 39,695,315 NICS checks. From 1/1/21 to 7/31/2021, there was 25,125,896. Due to COVID, it is safe to assume those who manufacture ammunition were sheltering in place.

        With all the excitement in our streets, another safe assumption is a lot of people bought a firearm and ammunition. After the ammunition warehouses emptied and the demand continued, prices increased.
        The same scenario applies to lumber.
        A man bought a rifle and pistol at Academy Sports when he inquired about ammunition, he was informed their shipments arrive on Tuesday and Thursday and get there early. BTW, as he possessed a SC carry permit, a NICS check was not required.
