I bought the box of .243Win 100 gr. Feds cause they were only $18.xx and being a bean counter mentality I knew the next time I see them rounds they will be $19.xx or $2X.xx. Investment with no depreciation! The G.D. (4 yrs old) will thank me some day, if~n I live long enough. We were here just 4 years ago also-remember.

    Ramp up production, hire more workers (jobs, what a concept) and make moonshine on the side...(Ford developed a method for distilling corn liquor during prohibition, he wanted to build a car to run on alcohol and what do we have now? Ethanol crap.... go figure.

    yup...but just one question, how much of the work is skilled labor? We have a lot of jobless with no skills right now. OTOH, they could get great PR by setting up their own training schools to give people the skills

    the problem is, if factory is running at max capacity and say a month behind demand what happens when they build a new factory 1/2 the size of the current one?

    now they are 6+ months AHEAD of demand, more money in the red to build new facility and equip it, and faced with possibly having to lay workers off durring the "normal" periods between government focus on guns, so the only way to make ends meet is to increase the cost to the consumer

    Ford had an ever expanding demand for his products, the demand for bullets is probably no where near the demand he had for cars and the number of shooters probably isn't growing due to the media, video games, urbanization, ect...

    Another piece of the puzzle is how QA tends to slip a bit... I will absolutely wait till things get quiet again before I go out and buy more stock...

    If you owned a factory, would you spend capital cost (new machines, new space, new hiring) to produce a product that might be banned? To produce a product that demand might fall through the floor on?

    OTOH Why the <bleeeep> is everywhere out of 6mm Remington, 257 Bob and 7mm Mauser. Those are SUPER popular rounds
