This might also have something to do with the addition of, and change to, the 6.8x51 cartridge that will be produced at Lake City

Ammo inc is also on line in WI

this also didn't appear to state XM193 just ss109 and m855

most civilians would shoot XM193

Winchester has the contract to operate , they could not re-sing the contract when time is up and put every dime of profits into operating it's other plants

the LC plant is also tooling up for 6.8x51 with new buildings that ammo will be substantially more expensive than the 855 or 109 those will have to increase in price to Gov contract a bunch of weekend shooters can run more ammo on a weekend that the army uses in a month

if you take the profit out of Lace city then who will bid on the contract later ?

does it specify that LC can't make and sell excess brass that is not a loaded round ? that could as profitable semi loads of brass sent to other loading companies

how will it influence the pull down market every out of spec round would have to be pulled down rather than resold if they miss velocity minimum by a margin.

there are an estimated 20 million regular target shooters in the US and the break down is 12 million rifle , 13 million pistol , 10 million shotgun and 3 million muzzle loader , with some obvious overlap

every time there is an ammo crunch people buy more shoot a little less and billions more rounds of ammo go into private ownership.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I wouldn't say there's no new plants opening. This was in January near Texarkana

Yep. Told my sons a while back that if you're gonna buy a gun it needs to be .223/5.56, 9mm, .40, or .308. They asked why? I said because you can likely find more on dead soldiers and citizens.

Technically we are not a free country. If those in power say no, they will get their way. Just like certain books that were not allowed to be published. Yes, it's hsppened.

Any other industry would've unless there's behind the scene reasons.


Take our recent oil industry as an example?




Yep , I agree

Bubba took his stimulus check to the gun stores in record numbers. Inventory was wiped out the first week.
