almost all the .277 bullets they make!
lucky I am a hoarder
about time we europeans started shooting more Norma and RWS bullets IMO
Now that will provoke panic buying. I can see customers looking elsewhere and not returning to Hornady when the company returns to its senses.
Muir if that's a half year in the states it will be 18 months at least in this country. Most of the importers can hardly manage to supply what you want at the best of times and what is more they couldn't care less either. It would to wrong to describe most of the importers in this country as representatives as they certainly don't represent the companies who's goods they import.
I think you are wrong about forgive and forget also. I've never forgiven CCI or Remington for the crap service I received from them in the dim and distant past or their importers Edgar Brothers. My complaints go back at least 25 years and I still remember when considering a purchase.
"And some dealers in the UK seem to have their heads tucked under their wings."
That's a polite way of putting it, I wouldn't have said wings myself.
You guys could be in for a longer Hornady drought than 18 months. I would count on a year of thin pickings depending on the bullet. Buy what you are allowed, and then use conservatively. The other edge of this sword is that the bullets they didn't suspend will probably go into a state of higher demand. Guys might switch from say, the 35 grain VMax to the 40 which will infringe on supplies that the regular 40 grain shooters have been tapping into.
