Updates

4/29/2014 -  Nothing has really changed much in the OEM component area for the small guy.  Doing the best I can with what I don't have.

2/12/2014 -  General price increase on most pistol rounds.  Everything has been going up over the last year.  I put it off as long as I could.

2/8/2014 -  Scored some powder from a dealer friend of mine that is moving out of state.  This should go a very long way in helping my backlog situation.  Still can't get a lot of what I need via OEM channel though.

10/20/2013 -  Still not able to get OEM components reliably and as a result am still not taking on new business/customers. 

7/6/2013 -   Was able to order some powder I can use in .223/5.56.  Powder cost pushed up pricing.  See prices page for details.  Still not able to take new orders but I will be able to fill a good chunk of the back log. 

5/26/2013 -  Still unable to even place a backorder for powder.  Found some old IMR 30 cal powder and some old Accurate #9 (for magnum pistol loads) but only 5lbs of each.  Barely a dent in the backlog/load queue.  I will likely pass away before this shortage thing settles down.

5/1/2013 -  STILL no real change.  Powder is the biggest bottleneck at this point.  Not a lot can be done about it.

2/21/2013 -  Nothing has really changed.  I don't expect any improvement for the remainder of this year and maybe not until well into next year (if ever).

12/17/2012 -  QMMO.NET is suspending taking orders from new customers for the time being.  Demand has far outstripped my ability to produce.  If you have an order in my queue I'll do my best to fulfill it but I can't promise anything for certain. 

12/2/2012 -  Lead times on most all calibers are 8+ weeks out.  It is worse than in '08-'09.  My load queue is strictly FIFO (first in, first out).  


Brass Policies

Brass policy is simple.  I don't charge for the brass and I don't buy brass - this is why the ammo is as inexpensive as it is.  I rely on range pickups and donations.  So far the vast majority of High Power Rifle and Semi-Auto Pistol shooters have been pretty good about getting brass back to me and I will continue on with the honor system.  Many of you have donated brass to help ensure the flow of ammo doesn't stop for lack of a component.  Any brass up front is always welcomed.  Returning brass is important and I do understand that sometimes logistics get in the way, so don't worry about it.  As long as I get brass back at some point - thats all that really matters. 

Brass Return Alternative  - Tossing the spent brass into a plastic bag, putting it into a USPS Flat Rate box and mailing it to me via the Post Office is another option - it only costs $12 to ship up to 70lbs. via USPS and my address is on the receipt.

I don't charge for the ammo cans either so I need to get those back too.


What it is... 

This is a part time thing for me...a hobby that got way out of control some years ago.  By day I'm a Technical Consultant/Database Developer/Data Analyst, etc.  During the evenings and weekends I make ammo.  I started out just to make ammo for myself to shoot in the local area competitions.  I decided to get my FFL and State License to sell ammo when the folks I had been purchasing ammo and components from over the years informed me they could no longer ship these items to Massachusetts.  I did the licensing thing so that I would be able to purchase the components I needed to make the ammo I liked to shoot.  Anyways, one thing led to another and now I have a difficult time keeping up with the demand. 

All ammo goes through a 100% inspection process prior to packaging. Each box/bag/can of ammo has the powder, primer used and month/year manufactured recorded on the box/bag/can as well as the average Muzzle Velocity (based on a 10 shot string where practical) of each lot.

I do not ship ammo.   
Why?  Simple - if I can't sell it to you I can't ship it to you.  Massachusetts state law mandates that I can only sell ammo to someone that presents to me, in person , a valid Massachusetts Resident  Firearms License.  Still, I get requests/orders all the time from folks all over the country.  It is what it is....nothing I can do about it. 

I don't have a retail store or shop in the traditional sense and usually meet first time ammo buyers at Mansfield Fish & Game in Mansfield, MA for deliveries.


Pricing

Pricing is based on the return of all spent cases and packaging materials to the place of purchase. Currently, I use the "honor" system to manage the return of spent material. In this way I'm able to keep the costs of the ammo as low as possible. While I don't reuse any boxes or bags, I do reuse bullet trays, ammo cans and (obviously) spent cases. Boxes wind up going into our local recycling program, so please take a few minutes when you've finished shooting to pick up the brass and packaging and return them to me when you get a chance. Doing so will keep our ranges cleaner and allow me to keep the ammo prices as low as I can.
