As far as bullet purchases go, I see conflicting stories. Some say the feds have their own plant that makes it, some say they buy it from mainstream manufacturers. I haven't looked into it enough to make a real decision. Clearly the horse crap talk about gun bans is at least in part driving the run on weapons and bullets.
The plant is owned by the Government (Army) and leased out to the manufacturer (ATK). It is part of the national industrial reserve system set up just after WWII.
