ADG's website shows no indication of this, only that it is unavailable and you can join an email waitlist. I suspect they are overwhelmed by demand and/or received a large contract with other commercial manufacturers that is simply more lucrative than the small outlet shipping they would otherwise do. Every ammo manufacturer is looking to source more components due to demand. It's simple business choices.
Makes sense to me. Why use material and tie up your equipment making .80 a piece brass when there is massive demand for 1.80 a piece brass right now. They could probably do nothing but run the PRC’s and the occasional run of SAUM’s and still not fill all the back orders.
The cartridges they list have plenty of other suppliers, so there less customer need and lower margins. If they are capacity constrained, then focusing on cartridges that provide more customer value and higher profit sounds like a good decision to me.
I have a back order with Creedmoor but haven’t received this email. However, I did receive a shipment of .308 and 6mm Creedmoor ADG brass from different vendors in the past week. Guess I need to baby it.
It says " temporarily suspend" not stop making-- Hornady does this too during times of high demand. Nosler will do just 1 run/year of less popular ammo and bullets during times of high demand also.
Its common place practice when demand is as high as it is right now
