    Federal/Speer Will No Long Sell 50 Round Boxes Of JHP To Non LEOs

    This has been brewing for a month or so, Speer and Federal (Both owned by parent company ATK) have both directed their online distributors (Bone Frog/ SGAmmo/ Ammoman) to discontinue sales of LE marked ammunition in 50 round boxes to the general public.

    Speer Personal Protection ammunition (which is the same thing without the LE on the box.) will still be available in 20 round boxes.

    I'm not sure about HST

    Isn't it Federal that has been "playing" with the number of rounds (40 vs. 50) in their boxes of .22 rimfire ammo for several years?
    This sounds like more of that PC b.s. to me.

    I keep hearing that the LE rounds are sold at a discount and this just means that the discount price is ending for the general public but SGAmmo sells the Personal Protection rounds cheaper than the LE anyway.

    I understand that there are Police Departments that buy ammunition in 100 thousand round lots and I'm not going to be too butt hurt if they get a better price than I do for buying that much at a time but I'm not going to business with a company that restricts the sale of any non NFA item to police only.

    I won't even buy WWB because they won't sell me Rangers

    I load my own, but it’s a stupid decision on ATK’s part.

    Yep, just more PC fertilizer that will not save a single breathing protoplasm.
