Remington ammo back in action

Looks like Remington has finally ramped up their ammo production to help fill the shortage after their plants were idled due to its bankruptcy.  I think ammo prices has plateaued with more production capacity online and covid winding down. Should have better supply in the stores but prices will remain elevated for a while.

That might not be the case depending on Resident Biden's gun control actions. If he manages to tax ammo or ban online sales, it'll get worse as gun owners race to stock up even more.

I also believe joe biden's gun control efforts is the driving force why people are stocking up on ammo, hence contributing to the ammo shortage.

biden's leadership is causing anxiety, insecurity, and confusion amongst the American people.

I like MrGunsngears advice from a couple months back. Buy spare parts now, and ammo will come down soon. For a while. Before it goes to the moon.

Is it just my cynicism, or does it seem like Remington is only ramping up ammo production AFTER their across-the-board price increases took affect this month?

Quote
Effective 4/1/2021 Federal, Remington, CCI, and SPEER ammunition will take a
price increase of 3-15% across all products from our last price list.

Is it remotely possible they held off on starting the 24/7 ammo production until after 4/1?  I mean, they did .... so ....  was it all part of "the plan"?
