Hopefully more domestic supply drops prices a bit.

ELLABELL, Ga. (AP) — An Italian-owned company will invest $60 million in coastal Georgia to build a plant to make and distribute ammunition, with plans to hire 600 people.

Norma Precision will build its facility near the site of the new Hyundai electric vehicle plant in Bryan County, just northwest of the Georgia coastal city of Savannah.

In July, Italian gun maker Beretta bought Norma Precision and other ammunition makers from RUAG International, a company owned by the Swiss government, for an undisclosed price. Norma Precision had already announced that it was moving its headquarters to Georgia, setting up a factory in the Savannah suburb of Garden City.
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Holy crap, I  completely missed the news that Beretta had purchased Norma. Wow. That's kind of ground shaking.

You think YOU missed some news? I didn't even realize Norma was now owned by Swiss rather than Swedes.

I always thought well of Norma - their long discontinued N205 powder was a favorite for handloading .30/06. (MRP and RL22 were close . . . but not exact matches.)
