Guns America Digest has a recent interview with Jason Hornady about their current production efforts and his expectations for ammo sales. It's interesting reading and may alleviate some fears about longer term ammo and component supplies. He confirms that much (most) of the current situation is the result of panic buying.

I met a gal at a local motorcycle shop who is from Grand Island. She says that Hornady is going full blast 24/7 and there is plenty of opportunity for over time. So, they are producing.

It's about time you started tolerating my intolerance. For liberals and anarchists, power and control is opium, selling envy is the fastest and easiest way to get it.

So does he have any idea when the panic buying will end? I'm still doing it. It's self defense.


Don't blame me. I voted for Trump.

It will end when we stop doing it to ourselves.

Given that Hornady doesn't make primers or powder, as a handloader I'm not very concerned about Hornady's production. If anything, I am competing with them for primer availability.

The term "panic buying" assumes that things are going back to a pre-2020 status quo, and that seems like a pretty shaky assumption.

Not just shaky, but flawed. There are more guns and more gun owners by a significant number than there were pre-panic.

Seems there is a hole in the distribution system where product is disappearing and no one seems too concerned to find where that hole is.

If Biden taxes guns and ammo like he's threatened to do in the past, the buying might slow WAY down. It'll be hell getting stuff in the months before it goes into affect, though.

panic buying is the dumbest thing there is. If you were not prepared then starting now is too late.
If its something new, I'll buy a bit to get by. This will pass too an THEN you buy unless you are still stupid. If it doesn't pass it won't matter either.

That hole is in the "Just in Time" inventory that every level of manufacturing from raw product to consumer retailers aspire to. Nobody wants inventory carrying costs, so there's no inventory.

Local Scheels gets ammo every weekday, prices it and puts it on the shelves, basically normal price with 1-3 box limits.

Triple whammy panic buying between an election, civil unrest, and Covid-19.

Go figure. I’m fine waiting for quality ammo and not boxes of bang clicks....

There is no hole.

Everybody that formerly had 1,000 primers on hand now wants 2,000 or 5,000.

Everybody that formerly had a box of .30-30s now wants 3 boxes or 5.

Everybody that had 3 boxes of cheap dove loads now wants 6 or 10 boxes.

Everybody that had 10 Flats of AAs it STSs for target shoots now wants 20 or 40 flats.

Everybody that had a box of .22s, now wants 5 boxes.

Everybody that had 1,000 .22s now wants 10,0000.

Everybody that had 3 lbs of powder, now wants 10 lbs.

If anybody sees something on the shelf that kinda might work but isn’t their ideal solution, they’re buying it anyway, either to use regrettingly, or to use as trade bait or to flip.

The stuff hits the shelves and sells immediately, rather than sitting for weeks.

I think that your second sentence contains the answer to the question contained in your first sentence.
