Hornady On Ammunition Availability

Regarding the ammunition shortage many readers are probably all too familiar with these days, here’s some interesting insight into the situation from Hornady Manufacturing, a world-leading innovator of bullet, ammunition, reloading tool, and accessory design and manufacture. From their website:

A Word on Availability

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.

Why can’t you make more? Ramp up production? Turn on all the machines?

We’ve been steadily growing our production for a long time, especially the last five years. We’ve added presses, lathes, CNC equipment, people and space. Many popular items are produced 24 hours a day. Several hundred Hornady employees work overtime every week to produce as much as safely possible. If there is any question about that – please take a tour of the factory. You’ll be amazed at what you see.

We are producing as much as we can; much more than last year, which was a lot more than the year before, etc. No one wants to ship more during this time than we do.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience. We don’t know when the situation will improve, so please bear with us a little longer. And remember, when it comes to Hornady Manufacturing, if you don’t hear it from us, please don’t believe it.

“To produce as much as safely possible.”

Very good to know.
