    With Hunting Season Just Around the Corner, Ammo Prices Are Set to Increase: Labor Day is now in the rearview mirror and that means the unofficial end to summer. Kids are heading back to school, the weather is going to cool down quickly in parts of the country, and it won’t be long until the leaves begin to change colors. With the arrival of fall comes football season and also the fall hunting season. With the pandemic largely under control, this year promises to be among the biggest hunting seasons ever – but that also could mean that ammunition prices...

    NEWINGTON, N.H., (August 22, 2022) – Sig Sauer has determined that portions of Lot No. JDAR0815 of SIG SAUER 9MM, 115gr, Elite Ball, FMJ (SKU E9MMB1-50), may have powder charge variations that could result in a bullet remaining in the barrel (i.e., a bullet-in-bore obstruction). Firing a subsequent bullet into a bore obstruction could cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury.

    The CEO of an online ammo retailer said last week that thousands of rounds of ammunition have “gone missing” during transit, particularly when shipped through UPS. CEO Patrick Collins of ammunition retailer The Gun Food said of 18,000 rounds of ammo that has been shipped from his company via UPS, just one third made it to their final destination. It is unclear where the remaining 12,000 rounds are. During an appearance on The Glenn Beck Program, Collins said UPS blames The Gun Food’s packaging for the missing ammo, despite the company having “met and exceeded” packaging expectations.

    Comments made during the Vista Outdoor June 6 quarterly investor conference call indicate the shortage on certain cartridges and loads may continue to be significant for some time. Chris Metz, CEO of Vista Outdoor—the company that owns Federal, CCI and Remington Ammunition, among others—told those on the line that, “We’ve seen continued and steady demand for ammunition, even as firearm indicators have slowed.”That fiscal year ended on March 31 and the next public update from the company will come later this month, although enthusiasts should expect only modest improvement. “As we said before, traditional firearms-related indicators are not necessarily correlated...

    Russian National Defense Control Center head Mikhail Mizintsev warned on Thursday, during a briefing, that Ukraine continues to store its ammunition and weapons in residential spaces, as well as in "educational institutions and other social infrastructure for military purposes." Mizintsev underlined that while the Ukrainian military is doing this, proper evacuation of civilians from the aforementioned spaces is not being carried out.Furthermore, Mizintsev noted that on the territory of Donetsk People's Republic, the militants of nationalist battalions are "systematically firing at the positions of the Russian army" so as to provoke the latter to "return fire."

    The Washington Times ^ | June 21, 2022 | Kerry Picket
    Fifty House Republicans have petitioned President Biden to stop the Pentagon’s plan to ban commercial production of AR-15 ammunition at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri, which makes as much as 40% of the commercially available AR-15 bullets in the U.S. The factory, owned by the Department of Defense, has allowed private contractors over the years to operate the plant and produce 5.56 mm ammunition, which is used in AR-15 semi-automatic firearms, for commercial sales that exceed U.S. military needs. Sen. Roy Blunt, Missouri Republican, later told The Washington Times that the White House would not follow through...

    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) spoke with Breitbart News about the current push for gun control in the House and warned us to be ready to see gun controllers “go after ammunition and ammunition manufacturers.” Biggs noted a number of gun controls have been passed by the Democrat-controlled House, and even though those controls have not passed the Senate he believes the House will pass even more. He explained, “I expect some additional gun control legislation to come out of the House. I expect there will be an attempt to do an ‘assault weapons’ ban, I think they’re going to continue...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News Saturday the IRS spent approximately $700,000 “between March and June 1” purchasing ammunition. Gaetz described the ammunition acquisition as “bizarre.” He noted he and his Republican colleagues are trying to ascertain why the ammunition was purchased, noting, “There is concern that this is part of a broader effort to have any entity in the federal government buy up ammo to reduce the amount of ammunition that is in supply, while at the same time, making it harder to produce ammo.” Gaetz noted a scenario where federal entities are buying up ammo puts citizens...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | June 15, 2022 | Dan Zimmerman
    Apparently not content with its efforts so far to make gun ownership more difficult and expensive for America’s 100 million firearm owners, a source tells TTAG that the Biden administration is taking steps to constrict the availability of .223/5.56 ammunition available to the average shooter. A person with knowledge of the situation tells us that, more than just “considering” the move, Winchester, which operates the US Army’s Lake City ammunition plant, has been informed that it may no longer sell M855 and SS109 ammunition produced in excess of the military’s needs on the civilian market. How would that affect the...

    American gun owners can expect ammunition and reloading component price increases due to soaring commodity prices in the next few weeks. Vista Outdoor, the leading U.S. manufacturer of ammunition, announced earlier this year that “supply chain constraints and increases in our raw materials” will result in “price increases to help offset those rising costs.”Price hikes will begin on April 1 for Vista Outdoor ammo brands, including CCI, Federal, Hevi–Shot, Remington, and SPEER. The ammo and component price increases are as follows: •Primers – 5% •Powder – 5% •Handgun – 2-8% •Rifle – 3-8% •Shotgun – 3-12%Vista Outdoor revealed April’s price...

    Ever since Russian forces invaded Ukraine, Americans have panic hoarded all types of ammunition, according to a top US online gun retailer.“A recent surge in consumer demand for small arms ammunition – the onset of which perfectly coincided with the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022,” AMMO, Inc., a US-based ammunition and components manufacturer, said in a press release Friday.

    Field and Stream ^ | 3/8/2022 | Phil Bourjaily
    Two New York state lawmakers have proposed an ammunition excise tax of .02 to .05 per round. If passed, the bill would make New York the only state in the nation to enforce a tax on ammo. Revenue from the measure, introduced by state Sen. Andrew Gounardes (D-Brooklyn) and Assemblywoman Pat Fahy (D-Albany) would pay for the newly created research fund dedicated to studying gun violence under the state Department of Health and the State University of New York. The state has seen a sharp increase in violent crimes, especially in New York City, which officials blame in part on...

    The Backdoor Gun Ban We need new, independent, domestic end-to-end ammunition plants, and right away.Last year, the Biden Administration banned the further import of Russian-made ammunition into the United States. After a subdued press release, which announced the ban was punishment for Russia’s poisoning of the anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny on a flight from Tomsk to Moscow, the entire issue was shelved. Today, no one in the administration is touting the success of this initiative in getting Russia to behave itself. Which is bizarre, given Russia’s excellent behavior since then.In reality, the Russian ammo embargo is a sanction on Americans,...

    Soaring demand for guns and ammunition comes from a range of demographic groups Just two companies, Vista Outdoor and Olin Corp, meet the bulk of America’s demand for ammunition, and chiefly through two long-established brands. Remington, part of Vista, was founded in 1816, and Winchester Ammunition, owned by Olin Corp, started in 1866. Because of soaring demand for bullets, both firms are enjoying the sort of heady growth that only new businesses usually enjoy. Three times a day, queues of pick-up trucks appear outside Remington’s ammunition plant on the outskirts of Little Rock, Arkansas, to bear away the fruits of...

    The Illinois Supreme Court ruled on Oct. 21 that two taxes on guns and ammunition in Cook County violate the state’s constitution because they affect law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment right to acquire firearms for self-defense. Supreme Court Justice Mary Jane Theis wrote in a 6–0 decision that the taxes violate the constitution’s uniformity clause, while also pointing out that the revenue from the generated tax isn’t directed toward funds or programs that reduce gun violence. “While the taxes do not directly burden a law-abiding citizen’s right to use a firearm for self-defense, they do directly burden a law-abiding citizen’s right...
