    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

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

    well, Remington's new plant in AR is now on-line, so that should about double availability. Which probably will cut prices nearly in half. I dont expect prices to ever fall down to 6c a rd .22's or 4c per primer, ever again. But if it gets close, I'm still going to buy 20,000 of each, cause I can't lose on the deal.

    I suspect it will be longer than I had originally thought.. The 2013 ammo shortage was severe for about 5 months, and it took another 5 to get back to simi-normal.

    The local gun store in a visit last week had abundant of the 9mm Buffalo Bore P + hollow point at about $30 a pack, they had 7.62x39 for about $450 for a box of 750. 22LR and 12 gauge was abundant at pre-pandemic prices. No other handgun rounds except 380 and 454 casull. No 5.45 or 5.56. Limited hunting ammo except 338, 45/70 and 375, Magazines were limited in most calibers.

    Walmart is down to about ten box’s 12 ga bird shot nothing else,nothing. A few cheap rifles and shotguns that will not sell because Of no ammo. It’s the shooters fault for not buying ammo when cheap and plentiful.

    Thanks for keeping watch.
    Its that "Eternal Vigilance" thing.

    Thankfully, after three weeks, nothing further has happened with this bill

    There is a possible window of opportunity a few months from now.
    If the Left gets too over confident, they may get complacent, as
    the Right did, after Trump was elected.

    .30-30-$70.00 box. I’m afraid it’s going to be a long spell before ammo is back. Biden is probably going to put a big tax on ammo to keep people from buying. The days of cheep ammo are over,what you have now is what you’ve got.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMut2RWVxY8 Learn how to DIY it, and then get some stock of primers you'd use. Primers are the canaries in the coalmine after all. Bullets brass and powder are easier to obtain, but primers are the issue. Various powders can be used same with bullets, including casting them. Brass can be picked up, or bought new and used.

    Production has not been able to keep up, as of late.
