This is totally crazy !


Georgia  Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in  America  . They sell 9mm, .45, .223 ammunition. They normally buy spent

brass from the  US  Department of Defense. Spent brass is "one time used" shell cases used by our Military for training purposes.

They buy the brass, recondition it, and then reload the brass for resale to Law Enforcement, Gun Clubs, Gun Shops, and stores like

Wal-Mart. They normally buy 30,000 lbs of spent brass at a time.

This week the DoD wrote a letter to the owner of  Georgia  Arms and informed him that from now on the DoD will be destroying the

spent brass, shredding it.  It will no longer be available to the ammo makers, unless they buy it in a scrap shredded condition (which

 they have no use for).

The shredded brass is now going to be sold by the DoD to  China  as scrap metal, after the DoD pays for it to be shredded. The DoD is

selling the brass to  China  for less money than the ammo makers have been paying, plus the DoD has to pay to have the brass shredded

 and do the accounting paperwork.

This sure helps the economy now doesn't it? Sell cheaper to  China  , and do not sell at all to a proven  US  business. Any hidden agenda

 working here?  Obama going after the Firearms Industry and our ammunition!!

The  Georgia  Arms owner even related a story that one of his competitors had already purchased a load of brass last week. The DoD

contacted him this week and said they were sending someone over to make sure it was destroyed. Shell cases he had already bought!

The brass has no value to the ammo maker if it is destroyed/shredded/melted.

The ammo manufacturer only uses the empty brass cases to reload different calibers, mainly .223 bullets.

The owner of  Georgia  Arms says that he will have to lay off at least half of his 60 workers, within 2-3 months if the DoD will no longer

sell spent brass cases to the industry. Georgia Arms has 2-3 months of inventory to use, by summer they're out.

If the Reloading Industry has to purchase new manufacture brass cases, then the cost of ammunition will double or even triple,  plus

Obama wants to add a 500% tax on each shell.
