- 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.
Now think about every ammo/component company out there doing this, and unable to catch up.
