I'd love to see what the Army pays per round... Buying in bulk is good!

I wonder if they have an employee discount?

US DoD is paying IMI an added fee for emegergency supplies of ammo. DoD is interuppting IMI's current production schedule.

LC is turning out every round it can.

Federal has designated sections and personel for military production.

Yup... big trouble
