    I'm surprised they didn't do this earlier when they couldn't make really popular items fast enough. Guess they're still really backlogged.

    Got any proof of that? Or is that just a guess?

    Sounds like a sound business decision.. produce what sells/is in demand the most.
    That's accomplished best by not dicking around changing production runs every five minutes.

    I have bought more Hornady bullets than any other brand - I think this will change - when a company that I support no longer provides me the bullets I want then I change vendors. Guess Speer, Sierra and Nosler will be getting my dollars now.

    So, what are you saying? Hornady has reduced production because their employees have been rounded up and put in FEMA camps?

    Is your tinfoil hat on snug enough?

    I see that they have suspended pretty much everything I would shoot in my .22K Hornet. That would make me a lot sadder if I wasn't stocked up on both bullets and reloads. Still sucks though.

    I guess it's time for me to suspend purchasing their products.

    Our overlords within the multinational conglomerate operating the military industrial complex have ordered hornady to furnish their fascist brainwashed military attack dogs with the ammo they need to round up the dullard masses who have been made completely perfunctory by the fluoride the Jew elite have been pumping into our KY Jelly supply, so they could easily herd us into camps and render us into soylent green so that we won't know they know we know they're watching us.

    This is John Connor, and if you are reading this, you are the resistance.

    Or the NSA.

    I guess some people are pretty butt hurt they can no longer crow about their superior logic regarding the availability of oddball calibers.

    I agree. It must be a short list, I mean suspending 150 items doesn't leave much TO make.
