Nobody is doing that. This just puts Goex back to or very close to where they were originally with the govt being a huge consumer of BP. It's a normalization and pretty much the fix for what everybody and their brother have been complaining about ever since the closing was announced. Most people really want to think it's bigger than it really is, but very few even realize how small our niche market is in the BP world. We are barely a drop in the bucket compared to what the govt buys. Probably nowhere near enough to cover the overhead.
Just like everyone complaining about percussion caps. Percussion Cap production is such a small part of CCI and Remington UMC's production and they don't make a lot of profit from percussion caps. I'd bet that Remington UMC hasn't made any discernible profit from caps since the 1860's. They make them to serve customers because they are expected to make them. Even though places like Dunhams and Cabelas charge $12 a tin now, it probably still costs CCI $5 to make that tin, after the brass, primer, packaging etc then the packing up and shipping out by well paid American Union workers , and fuel to get them to the store, that Dunham's likely paid $9 a tin wholesale for...... it's not like anyone is making huge profits off $12 tins of percussion caps.
Just like how I was actually shocked to read that ammunition manufacturers make little profit from .22 production, they just make it because the same customers who buy .22 also buy 9mm, 30-06 and others. On top of LE and DoD contracts for "service ammo" which are big $$. I worked at a nuke plant and we went through 10's of thousands of rounds of .40 and 5.56 per year. The guy who shoots a few boxes isn't even on the radar.
.22 isn't a big money item for ammo makers, they make it because they always have and stopping the production of .22 , especially by an American ammo company would cause much uproar.
