Why do they keep producing expensive target ammo? Obviously the available supply is more than the demand so why not switch over production to what people want to buy? My guess would be profit margin.
And it's not just target ammo, it's also premium hunting ammo. Seems like everytime I turn around there's an announcement of some new super duper hunting round! It certainly doesn't take some exotic new load to kill a squirrel or a rabbit, so why tie up production by making runs of this stuff! Yes, there is a market for exotic ammo, but it's limited. However, when a company can make as much money off a box or two of specialty rounds as they can make off of a brick or more of standard ammo which do you think they will push!
Final thought: This .22 ammo thing has been going on for 8 years! And production still can't meet demand? That's baloney - they just don't WANT to totally catch up to the demand.
