Now that the EPA has made it nearly impossible to produce lead bullets what are Remington and other manufacturers plans for mass producing non lead bullets?

I hope they sell some to the general public and cut their ties to big brother.

This is the first sign that the gun and ammo manufacturers are listening to the consumers. From the time of the ammo shortage to construction and production takes time but they have listened to those who enjoy hunting and shooting to meet our needs. Thanks Remington.

Can we start a lottery as to when Obama shuts them down? He does not want us to have Guns and Ammo to fight his Dictatorial Takeover...

Too bad Remington likes to dance with the Devil, signing gun contracts with oppressive anti-Second Amendment states like New York. Save your money to buy ammunition from a reputable company.

Way to go Remington, Congratulations on your decision. Now the question is : Where are the other Manufacturers of Ammunition ? Are they going to expand their Facilities as well. Another suggestion would be to limit Obama's Government Orders of Ammunition if that is possible. Thank you for your time. TSgt., USAF Retired.

We know why Remington is not expanding their facility in upstate NY. Thanks Governor Cuomo for a hostile business climate and a hostile Second Amendment climate.

They and others could get caught up much quicker if they would fill civilian orders before the feds.
