Well thats a bummer.

I have seen that as well, but I am going to call them tomorrow.
If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

Looks like they've suspended production on just about every ammo and bullet type I use to hunt with.... most hunters use to hunt with!

If you go to THEIR webpage, right on top, it says if you didn't hear it from them, it probably ain't true! I am going to call because all the bullets, for three different rifles I load for are on that list...

If it is true, then you know that they are taking the Obama buyout and dumping on the American public that has brought them to the point where they are.

They pay the firearms and ammunition manufacturers to slow or stop production to the public. Funded in the Obama care tax bill.

Hmmm, .223 55gr FMJBT is not a popular round, and 115gr 9mmFMJ is not a popular bullet? I smell something bad.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Regardless of the pressure put on them by the FEDGOV what Arms Company would willing accept money to basically cut their own throat?!?!?  If any company would and or should fight it tooth and nail you'd think it would be the Arms Companies first!  Thats is unless the lying back stabbing Corksuckers (obamanation) are baiting them with promises of exclusive arms contracts.... whic of course would be a lie too...  Loco

An awful lot of A-max, and HP match bullets on that list. I smell something bad too.

I agree with you Mike and thanks for the info. It just seems some are waving the conspiracy flag unnecessarily. Or I am misreading their intent.

I did not say Hornady was in bed with Obama. They are just falling in line to primarily fill government orders at inflated prices. Putting aside the millions of hunters and shooters that supported and built the company. Cutting there own throat. How can you say that? In the long run maybe, but where in big bushiness have you seen any of them looking to the future? Its all get rich now. Hornady sees the light. There is no future for the industry outside of government and military. Get it while you can and run. March to the drum of get trampled by the marchers.

Do you have any hard information to support your statements? A link?
Hornady claims only 5% of their production goes to Gov't sales. http://www.hornady.com/support/faqs/product-availability

disclaimer: I like and use several of their bullets and a Hornady rep gave me one o' their hats once, but I don't have a dog in this fight- just need to know the truth.
