I rarely disagree with you but I do here.
The price of all metals is thru the roof right now and has been climbing steadily for some time. Let's not forget climbing oil prices and EVERYTHING we own is related to oil in some way. While we did have a little dip in oil prices over the past couple of years they never went back to normal.
Now we have Mexico sueing gun manufacturers, how long before they go after ammo makers? How many law sutes do they deal with annually now?
Demand certainly hasn't dropped much, if any, since Obama took office. I know concealled carry is up across the nation and so is the demand for ammo.
The price of food has gone up which has more people considering hunting to try to save a little, demand for hunting ammo is surely going to increase to corespond with that.
I don't see this as a manufacturer trying to screw us as much as I see a company trying to plan for the future and stay afloat.
I was going to hold off on making a big order for reloading supplies and some ammo but I guess I can't wait much longer.
