Federal shells Direct to Consumer

Federal is selling some target loads directly to consumers. Prices are not cheap, but it seems that they establish a price ceiling to prevent gouging. They are to be commended. They are also enabling people who cannot get any shells to order direct so they can keep shooting.

Direct sales will never have pricing below retail outlets, otherwise your moms and pops will not order it. Retailers cannot sell it for more than it can be bought direct if at a lower price online and the moms and pops will go out of business.

And to us in California we don't care. We can't buy shells on line or from out ofstate.
Wal-Mart doesn't sell shells
Dick's doesn't
But Sportsman warehouse and Bass pro do but none in stock.
Bitch bitch complain I live in California

10.99 for ANY shell is gouging. If you think their trying to help it makes me wonder if you're a federal employee or own Vista stock! Lol.
I think the guy was just passing along information. I checked and 10.99 is SRP . Federal may sell directly to the public in" certain cases" but, you can be sure they won't sell the general public at less than SRP. They will give wholesale beaks to their distributors but NOT to Mr. And Mrs. average citizen.

One of the things we are seeing in many industries is the manufacturer selling direct to the consumer. With so many consumers being online and just wanting to stay home and get their deliveries direct to their door many are willing to pay a premium price for the convenience.

It is also a way for the manufacturer to expand their bottom line. Eliminate the middle man/dealer.

The ammunition shortage is rapidly evolving into a shortage of truck drivers in the transportation industry to haul the product.
There is some extra kick in the pants over the truck driver shortage.

With Joe BiteMe’s oil policy, with fuel going up in price, the Independents having to pay those increased prices in fuel, they can pick and choose the more profitable loads where shippers will pay more to get their product on the street.

Trucking companies with their own fleets looking at driver shortages and high fuel prices, will put their trailers on railroad piggyback trains which will increase the demand for that service, causing delays. The trailers have to be shuttled from and to the rail yards and either delivered direct to consigned or taken to carriers dock for breaking down the trailers.

Thank you Biden and all of those who voted for him.
