Fantastic news!!!

Now, no more griping about all the ammo gone. Don't snooze or you'll surely loose.

Suggestion... when it does come available buy all you can afford. This stuff isn't being manufactured any more. When the surplus ammo is gone, it's gone for good. Don't let what happened to some members happen again. Get it while you can! I have enough, but who knows, I may get more.

Hopefully the statement, "We do know that the quantity is large enough to satisfy our customer needs for several years." is based on the unforseen demand that the CMP experienced with the last batch. Perhaps this batch will last many years.

Sure, some companies will produce M2 spec ammo but at what price. Start reloading too.

Default The Brink

And at the moment when we had abandoned all hope... we are pulled back from the brink.

Thank you Orest.

HXP is Greek (Greek Powder and Cartridge Co.). So, unless this ammo was sold or given to another country by Greece it will be coming from there.
