PROBLEMS:

-A great many in our community have gone full retard and convinced themselves that O'bama is going to ban or severely tax ammunition, thus many people remain in a panic buy mode, soaking up as much ammo as they can, virtually by any means necessary.

-This fear of Obama extends to firearms as well, with a great many sales people calling the president "The Best Gun Salesman Ever". More people are buying guns, including NFA items such as suppressors.

-Ridiculous demand for ammo has skyrocketed the prices of popular calibers, leading many to reload ammo, which is becoming ever more expensive, or purchase .22LR conversions for their existing guns for cheap practice.

-Reloaders do not possess the option or inclination to reload .22LR ammunition



SOLUTION: capitalize on great market demand and compete against Federal, CCI, Aguila, Wolf, Remington, and Winchester and produce a high-quality ammunition optimized for use in .22LR AR conversions and suppressors.


Questions: what kinds of capital would be required to start a .22LR manufacturing facility (materials, land, permits) and what kinds of profit margins could you expect? Assuming you set out to produce a relatively clean-burning, accurate, powerful-enough cartridge that would be ideal for use for the increasing amount of folks turning to semi-auto 22's and suppressors, what sorts of challenges could one expect to run into? Could you produce (on a smaller scale, at first) a product that could match or exceed that which is currently available, and how much could you sell it for to expect any kind of worthwhile return?

Not seriously considering it, I was just wondering if anyone else has thought about it.

By the time you got started the crisis could likely be over.
Martin coSO caught an illegal in the woods behind a house raping a male dog. Illegals... bringing their "culture" to the US. -rexydg7

For real? You are trying to blame people fucking animals on illegals?

If someone made jacketed 22lr that would be the bee's knees. I wouldn't have to worry about gumming up my .223 suppressor with lead fouling.

How about buying it all up from local stores, then making a special bullet tip made from some exotic material, swap tips on bought up ammo and resell it for twice the price.

I don't think you can actually buy them.

I always assumed there was a reason that lead bullets were exclusively used in the manufacture of cartridges that used heeled bullets.

That "infantry" bullet cracks me up a little. Kinda corny.
One can never have too many books, nor too many wines, nor too much ammunition.
