"The current political climate has caused extremely high demand on all shooting industry products, including ours. Empty retail shelves, long backorders, and exaggerated price increases on online auction sites – all fueled by rumors and conjecture – have amplified concerns about the availability of ammunition and firearms-related items.

If the information you hear doesn’t originate from Hornady Manufacturing, don’t believe it.

Here are some of rumors we’ve heard, and questions we’ve received:

Have you stopped production, or has the government forced you to stop?

Not at all.

Did you stop selling bullets so you could only make loaded ammunition?

Absolutely not.

Since we can’t find your product you must be selling it all to the government.

Nope, less than 5% of our sales are to government entities.

For those that don't know, Hornady is a supplier of fully loaded ammunition as well as reloading components (bullets, brass, primers, power).

That commie Kenyan bastard Obama is taking all our guns. I got to fill my basement with LRPS and ammo!

I doubt Hornady would keep it a secret if the government was buying all their ammo, it goes hand in hand with how 2 months ago you could buy an average AR for 800-900 bucks and now you cant touch that same gun for less than 2 grand, good thing i stockpiled on all my nosler 30 cal, 25 cal, and 22 cal in September. Ive got thousands of rounds, any buyers? :)

The firearm industry is loving this paranoia -- just means more $$$.

It's bonkers..I can't even find any .22lr so I can target shoot with my kid. I'm a gun guy, but these paranoid lunatics are making it hard for the rest of us.
