Ammo Production
Each year U.S. ammo manufacturers make about 8 billion rounds, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry. Current production data suggests the numbers to be way up this year.  The increase in demand for firearms and ammunition is largely attributable to gun owner concerns regarding the current political climate regarding the current administration and worries that the tough economy will spiral into social upheaval and lawlessness.  There is a concern that the new administration will push for restrictions, an increase in taxes or other strict regulations on firearms and ammunition. The concerns come from from hunters, target shooters and from first-time gun owners who fear that there will be a renewed effort to limit gun ownership.  Private citizens who have not previously expressed an interest in their ability to access firearms for personal protection are now very much concerned and actively pursuing a means to obtain a firearm and ammunition.

Remington Ammunition Production
Remington Arms' ammunition plant in Arkansas is running around the clock and that's with 1,000 employees.  “We're working overtime to produce ammo, but right now we cannot meet the demand,” said Linda Powell, spokeswoman for Remington, which is headquartered in Madison, N.C., near Greensboro.

"Winchester Ammunition, like other ammunition manufacturers, has seen the demand for our products increase significantly since last fall.  To meet that increased demand, our operations are running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Our team is literally working around the clock to make quality ammunition available for purchase.  We remain absolutely committed to meeting the growing needs of our customers."

Hornady Ammunition Production
A message from Steve Hornady, president of Hornady Ammunition, on the company's Web site reads:  "Here at Hornady Manufacturing we are breaking our own production records in an attempt to keep up with customer demand. We have added extra shifts, machinery and we are also in the process of expanding our manufacturing plant."

  Ammunition Search Suggestions

Ammo manufacturers
are ramping up production to meet the growing demand.  Also, many gun owners are finding alternatives to traditional sources for their ammo needs. Many are exploring reloading their own ammunition to expand supply options, provide highly customized loads and in some cases, reduce the cost of shooting.

Look for ammunition at your local dealer first they will often offer the best advice on when ammo might be available and which dealers are expected to have ammo on hand.

Google search on "ammunition" to find ammo dealers in your area.  A map of your area should show up with a few dealers you may not have thought to try.

Work with the major outdoor and shooting catalog retailers and be willing to place an order using their backorder system.  You may have to wait a few weeks but at least your order will be in place while you try your local resources.

Shooting ranges may have target ammo for sale to allow you some practice time.  Several shooting ranges will sell you ammo to shoot at the range.  This allows them to provide ammo for customers to use at the range.  Suggestion: If you already have ammo, just hold onto it and shoot the ammo for sale at the range.  This keeps you from using up any ammo you may have on reserve.

Save your brass!  If you do reload you are already saving your brass.  If you don't reload, your brass will be valuable since it can be recycled into new ammo by someone you know or you may decide to learn reloading on your own!  Some shooters are able to take their brass to a local reloading business that takes their spent brass casings and reloads them.

Remain diligent.  Ammo is filtering in through the normal supply channels so check in with your local retailers and gun dealers often and don't get discouraged or alarmed.  Your interest and investment in firearms for personal protection, hunting or sport shooting is the best way to demonstrate that the importance of our right and need to keep and bear arms.
