    Vista outdoors is the company that owns federal, CCI and I can't recall who else. Used to be ATK running the Lake city ammo plant so it makes sense that it would be sold by Vista. Could be contract over run or out of spec for the contract but should be safe and good ammo.

    Thanks Frank, it could have been Greek for all I knew. I checked a little on Vista yea they own a pile of companies gun related.

    I found this ammo at a local gun shop here in central fl. I got my crate out the door for under three bucks a round tax tag title out the door. I will say there is some still on Gun Broker https://www.gunbroker.com/item/888435799

    watch the video from the guys at SPEER talking about it. We also have a long time member at WG who works for CCI, he says the same thing, they are running at full tilt with OT. No shortage its going out in semi's round the clock.

    7 days a week.... 12 hour shifts.... 10's of millions of rounds a week being produced.

    its more of a question of::: where is it all going?
    Sean I agree with you there is no true shortage of ammo just a huge ass demand. With over 17.5 million background checks approved just think two boxes with each gun, that adds up to a lot of ammo .

    That is a good price and the free shipping makes it worth it for sure. I just got lucky and got mine a bit cheaper. I did have to leave the house to find and get it.

    It didn't take my local shop long to sell out of these linked up cans of fifty cal. Mike called me yesterday to let me know they were down to the last two crates. I asked him to save me one more crate and I would come get it. When I got there Mike was telling a man that there was only one crate out of the two he saw for sale. The other one was spoken for. The fellow was a little upset saying he was there and had the cash and wanted the ammo. He calmed down when Mike told him the man standing by him felt the same way and on that note we both took home the last crate.
