Preparing for ammo sales in 2016



Snippit:

“Buy long” is the advice management with Hornady Manufacturing has for retailers looking to take on an expected increase in demand for ammo this year.

“We advise (retailers) go heavier on their inventory buys earlier in the year when the year looks to be as volatile as this one does. Bottom line, you can’t sell from an empty shelf,” said Jason Hornady, the company’s vice president, in a recent interview with the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

The election year paired with the polarizing political debate on firearms sparked by high profile mass shootings has been driving gun sales to record highs. This year has surpassed 2013, what’s often referred to as a “surge year,” for background checks — what’s used a barometer for gun sales. That same drive in sales also resulted in 2013’s ammo shortage, because of a boost in demand but short supply.

Hornady said retailers should place orders early — 60 to 90 days in advance — so the company can accurately project demand and produce the supply.
