Haven't you figured out by now that 99.99 percent of emails are hoaxes? In this case, you have a hoax on top of a hoax. The first one is that the ammunition shortage was caused by the government. Sorry, but government agents didn't run out and buy all the ammo off Walmart's shelves. The second one is that the ammo makers are going to refuse to fulfill contracts with their single biggest customer. Yeah, right. The current ammo shortage is no different that the toilet paper shortage started by Johnny Carson back '73: Pure hysteria by a gullible public.

Perhaps you can share your friend's meticulous research so we can judge for ourselves.

Text, email, somebody who knows somebody, it's all the same: Pure BS. Give us your sources, or STFU.

MarkB_MI, According to the ammo MFG, they are 6 to 9 months behind (1917) lol. That will mean maybe by next year or two there will be 1 box of ammo per customer guaranteed, or your money back.lol. I hate suppositions to.Can't swing a cat without someone who heard something that might be true,or thought it was true,or used their education to suppose its true. Isn't that how we got into this debacle in the first place??? Even the reloading components are coming up short, Had a order of (100 brass cases) for 300 winchester on backorder for 3 months,still out of stock,and says maybe by April they will be in stock.Enjoy the wait people. Is this the Hope and Change???
Hope you get some, No change in the future.lol.

PS GOING ONCE... GOING TWICE... POOF.

Walt it's no secret why there's an ammunition shortage. It started back in the mid-2000's, when the military's demand for ammo started straining production. Not so much for the two wars, but for training the troops going into those wars. For example, I used to be able buy Israeli-made IMI brass, but you can't get it anymore. All of IMI's production is bought up by the US and Israeli military. (The US only uses it for training, since it would be politically unwise for Israeli brass to show up where US troops are fighting muslim insurgents.)

Next the price of brass went out of sight, which drove up ammo prices and made spent brass hard to come by.

Then of course, we had a little panic back in 2008 when everybody started buying everything in sight. Ammo stocks were just starting to recover from that when the Newtown massacre occurred, leading to the current big run on guns and ammo. No conspiracy, just supply and demand, with demand fueled by paranoia.

Mark I forgot all about the toilet paper shortage! :lol: That was right in the middle of our first gas shortage. In early 1974 I was working in a Shell Oil refinery. Had to go to the refinery's weld shop for a few days to cut some 1-inch stainless steel with their plasma cutter. Having lunch with Shell Oil employees, I asked if things were real slow for them with no oil. They laughed their a$$ off! Said what shortage? They said every tank in the tank farms were filled to the brim with gas, and oil tankers anchored out in the bay waiting to dock so they could unload. What a crock! :roll:
