Just when you thought the ammo shortage was about over here comes the copper shortage !

My thought as to why we can't get bullets is because the bullet makers are now loading ammo with the ones they produce. Think about it....
Hornady started out making bullets........
Speer started out making bullets.....
Sierra started out making bullets.......
Nosler started out making bullets......
Berger started out making bullets..............
and the brass that you can't get is going where? Yep, you guessed it......to the companies loading the ammo. And what about those primers and powder that you can't get either? Same thing. Why? Because it's all about the buck and they make more on loaded ammo then they do components.
Not only that, they can control the supply to keep prices up and dig deeper in everyone's pockets. Hunting season is coming across the country.....let's see what happens.
That's my opinion anyway.
No doubt about it!
