Another ammo rumor

Spoke with a counterman at Bass Pro in the guns Dpt this morning. He told me they had ordered multi $M in ammo from Winchester and Remington but only received a few $Hundred K, worth at this point. He went on to say this should be rectified by mid June. OK, I guess we will see.

ammo rumor

I know that the manufacturers are only delivering portions of their orders. It's similar to how colt and bushmaster etc. were around election time, and probably still are. We'll see come june, but the prices will likely stay high. Its kind of like how airlines started charging for checked bags when gas was $4.00/gal because they had to compensate for flight costs... well now that gas prices are only about half of what they were, we're still being charged to check bags. Almost every business that raised their prices due to shipping/gas costs havn't lowered them back down to where they were.
Speaking of gas, its funny how it always seems to go up about a quarter right before memorial day.

well sure, Reaper

Gas is a speculative market as I understand it. They know demand will go up at the beginning of summer, around Thanksgiving, and around Christmas (uh oh, maybe I should have typed x-mas, huh 5in1killa? Happy Holidays my ass), so they increase price based on assumptions that demand will increase, not on the actual increase in demand. Is speculative market the right term?

Rumor

I can relate to your Bushmaster comment, 308. It took about 4 months to receive my complete upper from them. Stag was only a little less of a wait.

It's too late for me, save yourself.
