Hornady Shuts down the making of bullets, they have a two year back logf of bullets
Where are all the bullets?


Overwhelmed Leading Ammo Manufacturer Temporarily Suspends Production



In a statement posted on the Hornady web site the firm explains that though they have increased capacity and shipments over the last year, their efforts have been overshadowed by an increase in demand of over 200%.

Effective immediately, Hornady will focus its efforts on producing their most popular calibers, while suspending the production of lesser known projectiles and ammunition.

In the following message to distributors and retail customers Steve Hornady explains that orders for ammunition are such that it will take nearly two years to clear the existing backlog. He also assuages fears of a government conspiracy to limit ammunition, and assures customers that Hornady will not, and has not, raised their prices.


Itís important for everyone to know that our order demand is extremely high. And, even though we have temporarily suspended the production of some items, what we have left on order will take us almost two years to produce.


There is no conspiracy by the government to shut us down. This is not an effort on our part to raise prices. We havenít raised prices. If they are higher. thatís at the store level not at the manufacturer.


Weíre going to do everything we can by adding people, by adding machinery, and by adding square footage in order to try and make more of what you want to buy.



On the list of items that weíve kept we have over 270 of our projectiles and over 140 different rounds of ammunition

woah that's kind of crazy.
could it be considered 'ramping up' production, just in a narrower scheme?

there is some serious money out wherever the profits of the inflated store prices are.

I bet if the OP was slandering those that consume the items produced by Hornaday this would have 20 replies, and be deleted promptly...
