    Indeed...
    Just about every popular bullet I stock is on that list

    The 35 grain V-MAX for the Hornet is on that list. Hornet shooter's better stock up. They won't be honoring any orders from here on out.~Muir

    Looking at the list, I can see why many of the items listed are poor sellers, but I'd guess that the kind of people who use them -shooters with more specialist knowlege?- are likely to be disproportionately represented on forums, so this could be very bad PR, even if it makes sense from a manufacturing/sales point-of-view. After all, if every tyro who asks a grizzled "expert" is told "don't touch Hornady, they screwed us over in '13", a good number are likely not to. Whether a vocal minority of this sort has any influence in the face of the huge volume of sales orders Hornady must be trying to meet for this situation to have come about remains to be seen. I suspect not.

    Now that will provoke panic buying. I can see customers looking elsewhere and not returning to Hornady when the company returns to its senses.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    that box of h4h 58vmax could end up as a collectors item

    I saw the story once their "Colouring In" Department had got to it, and published the list of what they WILL be producing!!!

    With the likes of RUAG etc you best not hold your breath. Had to wait 5 weeks for a Kahles scope, was not pleased at all.
    Euro components are like rocking horse poo and importers do not give a damn about bringing them in...
