Hornady Ammunition – The Word on Ammo Availability

Hornady Ammo FactoryAmmoLand

Grand Island, Neb. –-(Ammoland.com)- The current political climate has caused extremely high demand on all shooting industry products, including ours.

Empty retail shelves, long backorders, and exaggerated price increases on online auction sites – all fueled by rumors and conjecture – have amplified concerns about the availability of ammunition and firearms-related items.  

If the information you hear doesn’t originate from Hornady Manufacturing, don’t believe it.

Here are some of rumors we’ve heard, and questions we’ve received:

  • 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. ( http://www.hornady.com/about-us/factory-tours )  You’ll be amazed at what you see.

We are producing as much as we can; much more than last year, which was a lot more than the year before, etc. No one wants to ship more during this time than we do.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience. We don’t know when the situation will improve, so please bear with us a little longer. And remember, when it comes to Hornady Manufacturing, if you don’t hear it from us, please don’t believe it. Visit: www.hornady.com/

  1. Maybe I missed something but, If the gov’t didn’t tell them to stop and only 5% is sold to the gov’t, why isn’t any ammo to be found?.

    1. People want more ammo, they are concerned about the future of our Great Nation and the actions being taken by the current Administration to take away their Constitutional Rights.

    2. I was thinking that same thing and I was waiting for them to answer that question, but it seems like they dodged it or ignored the question altogether. Wow, with responses like that, it makes me feel like I’m back in China.

  2. It sure sounded like a political creature who gave non answers and BS to the questions/rumors posed.

  3. “We don’t know when the situation will improve”. That tells alot. So anyway, even tho I dont believe Hornady if I did, I would have to come to the conclusion that the ammo shortage problem is because citizens are buying it.
    So, in closing, if this article is true, citizens buying is good. If this article is not true, and its a government stoppage, well, now I finally figured out what they really meant about “the patriot act”. hearin me?
    Guess thats where we are at. I seem to be getting more spiritual every day lately.

  4. (1) Make every round count, the ONLY rounds that count are the ones that hit.
    (2) Don’t fire till you see the whites of their eyes.
    (3) First rule …… take THEIR ammo.
